A young girl dreams she is Rosaleen, who, wearing a red cape, carries her basket through the woods to Granny's house. Along the way, she meets and flirts with a werewolf in the guise of a man, and promises him a kiss if he reaches Granny's house before her.
Jordan would revisit similar themes with the homoerotic Interview With A Vampire (1994), the ethereal, flawed serial killer movie In Dreams (1999) and The Butcher Boy (1997), a frank exploration of the dark depths of a young boy's imagination. None of them, however, quite matched the fever pitch of psychosexual weirdness on display here.
