Fantasia Review: Monstrous Teen Angst is Done Right in When Animals Dream

Can you believe it has been 14 years since Ginger Snaps? Fourteen! I guess more than enough time has passed to make room for another tale of teenage angst and lycanthropy. That is, a tale that doesn’t involve Stephenie Meyer and one that knows how to delicately balance the two while being entertaining, thoughtful and never heavy-handed. So welcome with me When Animals Dream, a Danish thriller from Jonas Alexander Arnby that gets the job done in surprising and pleasing ways. There’s not a whole lot of new ground being broken here, but the film presents a beautiful-looking backdrop and introduces more of a “classic Universal monsters” tone than one would expect.
