Hour of the Wolf is a 1968 psychological horror film directed by the legendary Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. The film takes place on a windy and remote island where the troubled artist Johan Borg (played by Max Von Sydow) lives. Johan has moved their to hopefully work on his paintings more. However Johan is becoming increasingly haunted by his past memories and nightmares. These worrisome thoughts are becoming contagious for Johan's pregnant wife Alma (played by Liv Ullmann) is starting to have the same delusions and memories as well. Are they going mad or is something supernatural afoot, possibly let loose from the local aristocrat (played by Erland Josephson) who lives elsewhere on the island, along with his supernatural clan. The Hour of the Wolf refers to the hour between night and dawn, when most people die and the sleepless are awake and most afraid of their deepest fear. The film is shot in magnificent black and white by cinematographer Sven Nykvist.
