Movie Info

A teenage girl's coming of age comes with a terrifying twist in this spellbinding take on the werewolf legend. Since birth, Anna (Bel Powley) has been raised in isolation by a man she knows only as Daddy (Chucky star Brad Dourif) who has done everything possible to conceal the truth about the girl's origins from her. But when the teenage Anna is suddenly thrust into the real world under the protection of no-nonsense police officer Ellen (Liv Tyler), it soon becomes clear that the young woman is far from ordinary. Unable to adjust to a normal life, Anna finds herself drawn instead to the wild freedom of the forest while struggling to resist the growing bloodlust that has awakened inside her. This moodily atmospheric thriller combines supernatural scares with a myth-like tale of self discovery.

Critic Reviews for Wildling

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (6)

Wildling starts out strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes engrossing and harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into a thoroughly unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.

At its best, "Wildling" is very smart about how we humans like to compare ourselves to animals - from the names of our sports teams to the way we describe the feeling of cutting loose.

April 12, 2018 | Full Review…

A supernatural "What's Happening to My Body?" parable in company with "Carrie," "Ginger Snaps" and last year's "Thelma," "Wildling" is low-key with an undertone of menace, skillfully directed by Fritz Böhm in his feature debut.

April 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A clever, sharp-fanged mélange of classic midnight-movie horror and modern indie ingenuity.

April 12, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

This creature feature from the director Fritz Böhm is functional but lacks flavor, an imaginative spark that might distinguish it from any number of other I-was-a-teenage-monster movies.

Move over, Bigfoot.
