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.

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...

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.

"Wendigo" (2001) is a story about a couple from New York City who take a weekend trip to the Catskills in the middle of winter. A local hunter takes a disliking to the husband (Jake Weber) while the couple's son becomes increasingly concerned about their environment and a Native American legend -- the Wendigo, an angry spirit that can manifest as man, beast, tree or wind.

"Wendigo" is not a conventional creature feature so if you're looking for a typical monster flick look elsewhere. The movie has a slow build-up filled with mundane drama, which some have criticized. Yet this is reminiscent of films like The Birds (Collector's Edition)," where the main characters and a sense of realism are well established before things get going.

"Wendigo" is a mood piece more than anything else. The mysteriousness of the lonely Catskill woods is evoked along with a sense of wonder and fear of the unknown. It's a vibe more akin to "The Mothman Prophecies" than "Ogre (Unrated)."

Like "The Mothman Prophecies" "Wendigo" is somehow a pleasure just to watch (as long as you're not psyched-up for a monster-slasher flick). There's a quiet style and expertise to the filmmaking that smacks of professionalism.

Patricia Clarkson is effective as the wife/mother and little Erik Per Sullivan is excellent as the son, Miles.

Interestingly, none of the special effects were done with CGI, but rather cinematic techniques, costumes, make-up and creative editing.
