4.0 out of 5 stars Very underated November 12, 2007
Format:DVD
Does it compare to gifted British writer Algernon Blackwoods chilling story? Not really.........but I have to admit that I was shocked concerning how much I enjoyed this film particularly the second time around. Now.......there are many opinions on why people like or dislike this movie so I don't want to be disrespectful of the views of others, but I honestly felt that for the most part that director Larry Fessenden made a pretty unique & errie film.

However.....I would not really class it as conventional "horror" but rather a tale of supernatural legend/lore if that makes any sense? A dear friend who is a production designer/artist was a guest at a special
screening of Phantasm in NY a couple years ago & Fessenden attended as he was screening a new film as well. My friend remarked to him that he & I really enjoyed Wendigo & how difficult it is to find new & innovative stuff, but we were a little put off by some of the creature shots that he chose to use in the film while there were shots in the special features that looked much better ,but other than that the film was pretty tight. Needless to say this did not go over well with the somewhat jaded director & he refused to reply? This is why I try to be a little careful because this comment closed the door on getting other interesting aspects regarding the film. All in all, the atmospere was great, shot entirely on location in rural upstate NY in the dead of winter & even without the snow you feel the cold dark woods & trust me, the mood throughout the entire film is unsettling & creepy.It very effectively conveys gloom & despair, plus.... the acting is first rate & the Native American score is quite haunting so to me, this is a very well put together film that I would highly recomend to anybody thats into errie local legends & lore or just spooky stories in general.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wendi-d that 90 minutes-go? January 5, 2003
Format:DVD
Big fan of atmosphere. The type of things that come to mind when looking for spooky, tangable tension in film could be; being chased by Jack Nicolson with axe in hand through a wintery maze or exploring the haunted interior of a large abandoned insane asylum via sweeping, drawn out camera pans accompanied by erie music. What 'Wendigo' gives the viewer is a truckload of atmosphere, but little else. The movie starts off in the right vein. The first 30 minutes are pretty good and I was thinking this could be a great horror flick. The rest was junk, and it keeps getting worse until the end of the movie when you don't know what just happened and why and what exactly was the point. Director Larry Fessenden Knows how to create a mood but doesn't know where to take it, leaving the plot flat and the characters boring. This is the type of film that might have benefitted from either some good CGI or leaving it up to the viewer's imagination as far as the title creature's appearence in the last ten minutes.... All and all a bit above most so-called horror films lurking out there, but just a bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wendigo Schmendigo... November 25, 2009
Format:DVD
If you're expecting a monster movie where dozens of victims are torn to pieces by a CGI creature, forget it. WENDIGO is a dark tale, mostly shown from a child's point of view, about imagination, mythology, and making sense out of harsh reality. A boy named Miles (Erik Per Sullivan) is thrust into increasingly nightmarish circumstances when a family vacation becomes a deadly ordeal. After infuriating a vengeful hunter named Otis (John Speredakos), the family becomes the object of this unbalanced man's rage. The boy's parents (Jake Weber and Patricia Clarkson) attempt to deal w/ the building insanity by using logic and psychology, while Miles is introduced to the spiritual world of the WENDIGO. The supernatural aspects of the story could be fact or fiction, the result of an intervening spirit or halucination. From young Miles' perspective, it is all too real. It is his view that drives the movie...

2.0 out of 5 stars Showed Promise February 14, 2004
Format:DVD
Man, every once in a while you find a movie that really could have been cool if it just had a little more money pumped into it. 'Wendigo' is a great example of this.
As many other reviewers have pointed out, the atmosphere was really eerie. I thought the director (Larry Fessenden) did a great job in setting the mood and directing his cast. Other reviewers seem to disagree, but I though it was well acted. Problem is though, it was almost as if Fessenden knew that the special FX were going to be lousy. It seems to me like he tried to cover this up by dragging out the opening sequences and limiting the ammount of time that the Wendigo is on the screen to the bare minimum.
This really ended up hurting his final product. I wound up feeling like the movie turned out to be no better then a "pretty good" X-Files episode. Simply put, it took too long to get started and then ended too quickly.
Bottom line is, if you can catch it on cable or rent it at a reasonable rate, it's not at all a waste of your time. However, I honestly just couldn't justify spending the money to buy a copy

3.0 out of 5 stars The Need For Myth December 14, 2006
Format:DVD
This creepy indie film has a family heading out to upstate New York to a friend's cabin to get a bit of a vacation. On their way they hit a deer and earn the ire of a local named Otis. Otis and friend had been tracking the deer for hours. An antler was cracked by the accident making it worth much less. Eventually they manage to leave the hunters behind and make it to the house. The next day they go into town for some supplies and the boy meets a strange Native American who teaches him about the legend of the Wendigo. While not scared at first by the legend, the fear generated by the incident with the hunters begins to plague the boy.

Later, the father is injured while sledding with the boy. The boy gets scared and believes he is chased by the Wendigo. He is found hours later by his mother. Together they set out to find the father. They find him and the boy has another run in with the Wendigo. The action then moves to the hospital where the father receives treatment. The boy sees the Indian again and the film ends. Just stops. That's it.

According to an interview with the writer/director there is no monster in the film. He is trying to show how myths come about to help explain the world. But that doesn't explain the mysterious Indian that no one else seems to see. Most of the acting was pretty good although some of the hospital personnel were poorly portrayed (I especially didn't like the casual and cavalier way one staff member delivered some news and sauntered away). When the film ended I felt a little gypped. There were plot threads I wanted to know more about. We have a main character who may be wounded or dead and we never find out either way. There is so much more to the story and it is just not there.
