Stop-motion animation is a painstaking process where only a few seconds of a film can be photographed per day. On top of this, CG animation dominates the box office, making the number of stop-motion films produced few and far between. Despite their rarity, stop-motion films represent the pinnacle of animated artistry, with many ranking among the greatest animated films ever made.
Chilean stop-motion horror film The Wolf House is the most visually striking stop-motion film ever made. Audiences will find it difficult to not spend the entire duration of the film wondering how the animators crafted this impressive movie. Unsurprisingly, The Wolf House took five years to complete.
The Wolf House is inspired by the real-life story of Colonia Dignidad, an isolated colony run by Paul Schäfer that became infamous for its criminal activities and child abuse scandals. While its narrative is challenging and requires multiple viewings to truly comprehend, The Wolf House's unnerving surrealist imagery is truly unforgettable.
