Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Adapted from Charles Lambert's play, this British fantasy is a penetrating parable on homophobia and gossip about gays. Kromer, a village in rural England, dances with wolves surrounding the town. However, the "wolves" seen here are performed by barefoot actors clad in worn jeans and fur coats with furry tails. Their promiscuity, theft, wild bonfire parties, and other activities are deplored by the hypocritical back-stabbers who reside in Kromer. A new wolf on the prowl is Seth (Lee Williams), who pairs off with Gabriel (James Layton). In Kromer, a woman is being poisoned by her servants who plan to put the blame on the "sinful" wolves. Soon a vigilante hunt gets underway, projecting even more parallels with homosexuality. Former Culture Club vocalist Boy George narrates the story. Shown at the 1998 San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.
