April 29, 2009
A hidden treasure among the masses of cookie cutter horror flicks...
February 13, 2003
[Fessenden] is much more into ambiguity and creating mood than he is for on screen thrills
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 16, 2002
A finely tuned mood piece, a model of menacing atmosphere.

It is nature against progress. In Fessenden's horror trilogy, this theme has proved important to him and is especially so in the finale.

Until it goes off the rails in its final 10 or 15 minutes, Wendigo, Larry Fessenden's spooky new thriller, is a refreshingly smart and newfangled variation on several themes derived from far less sophisticated and knowing horror films.

It's a horror movie that knows how to be scary, but not at the expense of fascinating characters.

Fessenden ... sets a chilling tone of anticipation that keeps you inching forward, a scene at a time, until you're on the edge of your seat.

A mostly intelligent, engrossing and psychologically resonant suspenser.
March 1, 2002
A subtle and well-crafted (for the most part) chiller.

Director Fessenden's inventive camerawork, staccato editing, and creative use of sound make "Wendigo" a creepy, entertaining ride.

It doesn't make for great cinema, but it is interesting to see where one's imagination will lead when given the opportunity.

(Wendigo is) why we go to the cinema: to be fed through the eye, the heart, the mind.
