Directed by Ingmar Bergman

Sweden 1968 90 mins. In Swedish

Despite having toyed with aspects of psychological horror in prior films such as The Silence and Persona, Hour of the Wolf remains Bergman’s only exercise in true horror. Shot on Bergman’s beloved island of Fårö, the film concerns an artist (Max Von Sydow) who recounts a series of disturbing delusions, indistinguishable from reality. Liv Ullmann plays his pregnant wife who is powerless to help him as he slips further into madness. “A must for fans of horror and Bergman. So good it makes you wish he had dabbled in the genre a bit more often.”—Kim Newman, Empire. Best Director, National Society of Film Critics. In Swedish with English subtitles.
