Because of the fact that wolves can not truly be tamed, although they may appear tame, they can still turn nasty, snipers were required to be onset during the filming in case the wolves did attack anyone. Producer Stephen Woolley had said to the sniper "Shoot the wolf first, then shoot me because my life won't be worth living if the wolf goes for the young kid," referring to Sarah Patterson.

The Company of wolves is a very unique film that has to be watched with an open mind. It's a very surreal fantasy-horror story all of which takes place within the mind of a sleeping adolescent girl. Each story is filled with beautifully done metaphors and similes in which the werewolves represent puberty, sexuality, masculinity, and sexual awakening though there is no actual sex in the entire movie. It's very beautifully done. And even if you don't like symbolism and faery-tale style movies the werewolf transformations are quite unnerving and the stories the grandmother tells rosaleen (which are acted out as short stories in the movie) are rather chilling. This is the most original werewolf movie you will ever come across. There has never been or will there ever be again anything quite like it.
