The main theme in this film is the journey from innocence to adult hood Everything that happens as the movie progresses is a symbol or representation of how David is growing up and dealing with reality and who he really is In the beginning of the film David and his friend Jack are very lighthearted and have a carefree attitude about the world They dont take many things seriously even when adult around them are trying to warn them however cryptically about the dangers of real life After the attack on David and Jack David not only has to deal with the death of his friend he has to deal with finding out that he is a coward who ran away and left his friend in his time of need All of the times when Jacks spirit shows up and talks to him telling him that he has to kill himself because of what he will become could also be interpreted as Davids own guilt at what he did to his friend The thought of suicide would be a common reaction to feelings of guilt after the death of one so close As David becomes the werewolf or monster this could also be interpreted as his horrible feelings about himself coming out He would think that he was a monster inside because of what happened to Jack The pain he experiences when transforming into the werewolf could be attributed to the pain he feels over the loss of Jack However David does not deal with this pain this reality of himself He tries to ignore what happened and what is happening to himself Every time except for the last that Jack appears to him David tries to tell himself that he is crazy writing off these warnings from his friend as his over active imagination after a traumatic event He also tries to escape this reality through love with Ms Price using sex and pleasure
