"Blood on Wolf Mountain", also known as "The Wolf Hill", "Bloodbath in Langshan", and "Bloodshed on Wolf Mountain", is a Chinese film directed by acclaimed Shanghainese film director Fei Mu. Made just prior to the commencement of full-scale war with the Japanese, the film itself is often considered an allegory of conflict between China and Japan that had been going on intermittently since the Invasion of Manchuria in 1931. The film was produced by the Lianhua Film Company and was released in November of 1936. [cite web | url = http://www.ibseninchina.com.cn/Jiangqing.htm#_ftnref30

The film tells the story of a village that is beset by a pack of wolves. Though the symbolism was clear, the Japanese themselves refused to acknowledge that they could be represented by blood-thirsty wolves. [cite web | url = http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,946771-1,00.html
