When George and Kim arrive at their cabin, they soon find that a dark and intimidating presence seems to have taken over the cottage. After a shopkeeper tells Miles about the legend of the Wendigo, a beast from Native Peoples folklore who is half-man, half-deer, and can change itself at will, the child begins to wonder if the creature might have something to do with his family's sudden misfortune.

It was forever slow and then rushed in light speed at the end...the camera shots meant to create an a spooky atmosphere were simplely annoying.
Could've been my own ADD, or it was just bad. It went at a snail pace, and the sound was very low, which was another reason I could not get into it. Love the cast, just not a fan of the movie.
Well that sucked. Not even in the fun kinda way. In the "wow that was a waste of a chunk of my time on earth" kinda way. How you gonna have malcolm in the middle kid and still fuck up? I can't think of a single positive thing besides maybe like 2 actors being competant.
You know I thought this was shudder. Where the scary and horror movies are. The only harrower I see is shudder being horrible. I gave it a chance saw 5 movies and came to the same conclusion, this is shit, not even a train wreck, just a cluster fuck of epici wish you could give it a minus one.
If some friends made this movie for fun and did a showing at their house or a local brewery or something, my response would be "alright, considering the context." Given that it's on a streaming service I'm paying for, presented as an actual movie to watch for entertainment, it's terrible. Like, in the same league as The Room, but while managing to not be funny. It sort of feels like the non supernatural elements were a used for a "based (too closely) on a (sad, but ultimately not exciting) true story" movie, and when they realized it wasn't working, they threw in the wendigo myth, but without the wendigo's traditional association with cannibalism or cold snaps. But they threw in a magical First Nations character to give exposition amd then vanish. So many parts of this movie feel like they should have been trimmed out, but weren't because it would have left the movie at
