** This troper heard of a tale similar to the one described above but the bullet wasn't silver, it was "blessed" and the woman claimed her hand was maimed from a occupational hazard, I can't remember what though.

* Father Solomon's children may seem strange,given he is a priest and apparently pretty high ranked. But if you look at the cross on the roof of the church, it is clear we are dealing with an Orthodox village, hence, it makes sense for Father Solomon to have children as Orthodox priets aren't banned from being married.
* This is more of a supernatural geek FridgeBrilliance. Father Solomons story of his wife draws its roots from an early werewolf tale of a professonal Werewolf hunter who shot a silver bullet at a werewolf and as it ran, he saw he had severed the paw from the wrist. He didn't find the body, (A little fuzzy if he fould the paw or not), but the wolf never attacked again. Years later, a doctor heard the story and confessed to bandaging a womans stump of a hand when she claimed she lost it to a barbed fence.

** There's a problem with that, however: Father Auguste refers to Father Solomon's silver sword as having been "blessed by the Holy See," a clear reference to the papacy, and thence to the western church. It's possible that Solomon entered the priesthood after his wife died.

** That can't be that old a werewolf story, since the idea that werewolves were vulnerable to silver was invented by Hollywood in the twentieth century. Also, barbed wire fences were only invented in the nineteenth century. Werewolf legends are much older than that; the story of Lykaon comes from ancient Greece, so werewolf myths existed in some form at least that far back.

* Anyone thinking of using the original fairy tale (where Red is saved by a woodcutter) to eliminate who isn't the werewolf would be disappointed as two of the main suspects, Peter and Cesaire, are ''both'' woodcutters, so either could be the rescuer.

IncestIsRelative, but she probably doesn't even know Henry is related to her.

** A different sort of FridgeHorror comes up when you realize the film implies [[spoiler:Cesaire very well may have turned his own mother into stew, which Valerie eats a bite of before stopping herself]]. Something very similar to this happens in older versions of Red Riding Hood.
