A 16-year-old girl living in a drab fishing village discovers that her strange growing pains have a monstrous cause: she’s turning into a werewolf. Danish horror thriller When Animals Dream (Når dyrene drømmer) takes a brooding art-house approach for this dark coming-of-age story, but given that the mood here is more dull than eerie, a touch of schlocky exploitation might not have gone amiss. The brilliant Swedish vampire thriller Let the Right One In did a far better job at giving sexual awakening a European horror twist and was far more chilling and touching.
Certificate 15. Runtime 81 mins. Director Jonas Alexander Arnby
When Animals Dream debuts on Sky Cinema Premiere on Wednesday 7 September and is available on DVD from Altitude Film Distribution.
