Editorial Reviews

Still grieving the death of nine-year-old Alice their only child at the jaws of a crazed dog, vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice. The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree terms with Arthur, the village s leader, a far bigger question looms what will they do when it s time for Alice to go back?

Format:Blu-ray
Reviving the legend of Hammer films certainly seemed like a great idea. Renowned for their creepiness and monster mayhem, Hammer was one of the most influential horror players in the film industry for approximately four decades (most relevantly, perhaps, in the fifties and sixties). Their 1958 version of "Dracula" with Christopher Lee is still considered by many to be the definitive film version of this oft told tale. Well, Hammer is back in the game! Their first release was the contemplative vampire remake "Let Me In," a terrific film that owes far more to its Swedish predecessor than to the mystique and allure of Hammer. Their follow-up film "The Resident," however, is pure Hammer--unfortunately, it's late period schlock as opposed to something that's going to reinvigorate the legend. Finally, with the creepy "Wake Wood," we've got something that represents the Hammer name and legacy in a recognizable way.

I must, however, be slightly cautious in my recommendation of "Wake Wood" as to announce it as a pulse pounding horror thriller might be setting up false expectations. The film is most effective at establishing an unsettling vibe and mood--it's an atmospheric film that owes far more to realistic and believable performances than to outrageous scares or gore. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of blood--but what really provides the tension in the film are the strong and sometimes fearless performances of leads Aiden Gillen and Eva Birthistle. Birthistle, in particular, is astoundingly heartfelt--aggressive when necessary but always accessible and vulnerable. After the unexpected death of their daughter, the couple struggles to cope. Moving to a new, and noticeably odd, new community--they are growing ever more distant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Desperation... April 1, 2011
Format:DVD
After a couple lose their only daughter in a horrible accident, desperation leads them to try occult means to bring her back. Unfortunately, things don't go according to plan, leading to horror, despair, and carnage. WAKE WOOD is a tremendously unsettling, atmospheric creeper w/ a gradually tightening sense of suffocating dread. It's also one of the best supernatural thrillers I've ever seen. If you enjoy stories like THE MONKEY'S PAW, PET SEMETARY, HELLBOUND (BOOK OF THE DEAD), or BOBBY from Dan Curtis' DEAD OF NIGHT (TV) anthology, then WW will make you smile w/ grim delight! Well worth owning...

For a description of the plot, etc., read other reviews. I just want to give my thoughts on this movie...

This 2011 movie was recommended to me, so I had to see it. It's a very interesting, bizarre, and different Hammer horror movie. This movie marked Hammer's return to making movies. Ironically, it really doesn't have the same feel and atmosphere of the Hammer horror movies that were so popular in the 1950's, '60s, and '70s. Like the old Hammer movies, it's low budget, but this movie is a lot more gruesome and bloody than the goriest and bloodiest Hammer movies from decades ago. It's more in tune with what contemporary audiences want and expect from horror movies in general. In contrast, the new version of "The Woman In Black" (2012), also a Hammer movie, is more in tune with the old Hammer movies. However, I did enjoy "Wake Wood" and its bizarre plot, unique camera angles, and very different and unique musical score by Michael Convertino. I think the music is one of this movie's greatest assets. That and the camera angles and overall cinematography and feel. This is one of those movies where the viewer needs to suspend all disbelief and just accept the plot for what it is, weirdness and all.

Overall, this movie is definitely worth a look. I highly recommend it.
