A finely tuned mood piece, a model of menacing atmosphere.

... a post-modern pop scare show that doesn't quite work.

This film is only scary if you're afraid of artfully self-conscious, grainy cinematography.

The woods haven't been this creepy since The Blair Witch Project.

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.

The two leads are almost good enough to camouflage the dopey plot, but so much naturalistic small talk, delivered in almost muffled exchanges, eventually has a lulling effect.

Fessenden has nurtured his metaphors at the expense of his narrative, but he does display an original talent.

A subtle and well-crafted (for the most part) chiller.

A properly spooky film about the power of spirits to influence us whether we believe in them or not.

The ending doesn't work ... but most of the movie works so well I'm almost recommending it, anyway -- maybe not to everybody, but certainly to people with a curiosity about how a movie can go very right, and then step wrong.

If this dud had been made in the '70s, it would have been called The Hills Have Antlers and played for about three weeks in drive-ins.

No amount of arty theorizing -- the special effects are 'German-Expressionist,' according to the press notes -- can render it anything but laughable.

For those in search of something different, Wendigo is a genuinely bone-chilling tale.

The engagingly primitive animated special effects contribute to a mood that's sustained through the surprisingly somber conclusion.
