Hair down there - hair everywhere!

Marie lives with her over-protective father and her sickly mother in a small fishing village on the northwestern coast of Denmark. As Marie slowly matures into womanhood, the family doctor grows weary that Marie may suffer from the same mysterious illness as her mother - an illness with symptoms such as a volatile, aggressive demeanour and fur-like hair covering the whole body … Using werewolf tropes to explore the experiences of puberty, WHEN ANIMALS DREAM is a beautifully shot horror movie in the vein of De Palma's CARRIE (1976).
