Werewolves (in books and movies) often function as allegories. My favorites explore adolescence, sexuality, and self-awareness. In WHEN ANIMALS DREAM, Marie discovers a dark secret about her herself and by extension her family — something her father insists must be suppressed and kept hidden from the world… even though everyone else seems to know already. Much like Dawn in TEETH, Marie comes to realize she doesn’t have to be afraid of or ashamed of her true self, and those who truly love her will accept her as she is, claws ‘n all.

    1. I prefer watching foreign movies with subtitles too. Dubbed movies drive me crazy. I always have the closed captioning on with everything I watch so I’m used to it. Guess I love reading everything, even TV. lol
