The first film in Ingmar Bergman's 'Faro Island trilogy' which was his first (and only) time into the genre of horror. Max von Sydow plays Johan Borg, a brilliant painter who, while spending the summer on a remote, windy island with his pregnant wife Alma (Liv Ullmann), starts to experience terrifying nightmares and hallucinations. Alma is desperate to help her afflicted husband, and in 'the hour of the wolf', between midnight and dawn, listens as he outpours his painful stories and memories. Before long she too is experiencing the violent hallucinations, and is 'visited' by a faceless old woman who advises her to read her husband's diary... with devastating consequences.
