Movie Info

Stuart Orme directed this charming children's adventure-fantasy based on the book by Joan Aiken. Set during the imaginary reign of King James III, sometime in the last century, the story takes place in the snowbound and wolf-infested North Yorkshire countryside in England. The tale centers upon two children -- Bonnie (Emily Hudson) and Sylvia (Aleks Darowska) -- and how they attempt to foil a sinister plot by their evil governess Slighcarp (Stephanie Beacham). ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Suspenseful, creepy British film is nightmare fodder.

Audience Reviews for The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

If Richard O Brian's in a film it's bound to be worth watching in some way. Despite the girls being rather whiny even before anything bad happens to them, the nice vein of gothic running through the storyline is enjoyable.

Super Reviewer

A disappointing rendition of the children's story. But at least the girls were correctly portrayed.
