...the storytelling gets more haphazard and by the time it finally fully shifts gears into horror, the whole thing just becomes kind of silly, not to mention pretty sloppy from a technical standpoint.

Böhm's film is cloaked in mystery, dark and dank, occasionally bloody, sometimes shocking, and fantastically folkloric.

Fairytales can be far denser than people realize. Wildling knows that, and creates something quite impressive in its 90 minute running time.

[Wildling's] a strong, assured debut with a cracking cast and plenty of weird, dark storybook elements to surprise even the most diehard body horror fans.

A metaphor about the process all girls go through physically and psychologically, in a world painfully focused on gender roles and ignorant of feminine sexuality.

The actors do their best, but Wildling is a bland muddle: fatally uncertain as to what tone it wants to convey, and prone to haphazardly picking up and discarding subplots and themes.

It means well, even when it doesn't have a lot to say.

Wildling has a promising start, but it comes apart when Anna's transformation begins. It feels almost like two different films in one, and this unfortunately leads to multiple plot holes and strange character arcs.

Wildling is a solid debut feature for Böhm and features a magnetic performance from Bel Powley as well as some excellent creature and gore effects.
October 24, 2018
A new exponent of terror that exceeds the average of the genre thanks to its abundance of ideas and searches. [Full Review in Spanish]

Anna's journey from confinement to liberation is more complex when configured in the back of her big blue eyes, when the look she fears is the one on the other side of the bars. [Full Review in Spanish]

The drawback is a script that, after an acceptable start, takes an erratic course. [Full review in Spanish]
October 16, 2018
Wildling is an attractive film that despite its shortcomings, has the virtues of an independent cinema exploring identity and sordidness of terror. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 23, 2018
Another film that seeks to explore the tumultuous battlefield of becoming a woman, Wildling oozes with an unexpected amount of dark charm.
July 27, 2018
A horror film that departs from conventions to deliver an unconventional story but lacking solidity. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 11, 2018
There's a maturity struggling to get out, but the director just keeps injecting it with moments that stunt the growth and ultimately fail its ambitions.
May 4, 2018
A clever reimagining of werewolf lore using a present-day setting and female twist.
May 4, 2018
The attention paid to images does not translate to character development, story, or dialogue, leaving little emotional resonance, while making me seriously wonder if the men telling these stories understand much at all about female sexuality.
April 26, 2018
This horror film and fantasy made my heart pound ferociously.
April 26, 2018
It's a promising debut for Bhm, with a lot of promise. But it's a home run for Powley, who makes "Wildling" worth watching even when it shouldn't be.
