I'm just going to get right to it, Wake Wood has issues. The protagonists are awful, annoying, unlikeable people. The father is a complete asshole to everyone right from the start, and the mother is completely void of any personality at all. They're both incredibly deceitful and ungrateful human beings. That's fine, as some movies thrive on the detestable nature of the main characters. Unfortunately, this one wants you to feel bad for them, and root for them. Not likely. Also, they are complete morons. Repeatedly putting themselves into danger with the classic horror contrivances. Additionally, there is no explanation here. We're left wondering why everything is happening and never given an explanation. Yes, we know their deception created the predicament, but not what specifically is the circumstance. Some good effects, and some not-so-good. All in all, I wanted to like this movie so much. I rarely waste time complaining about film, but this one bothered me too much to let it go.
