Wildling Reviews

March 11, 2020
...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.

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.

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

The script needs a reworking to figure out how the third act evolution from character drama into bloody violence can be organic and relevant to the rest of the narrative with substance
