Wildling Review


Wildling is new interesting take on werewolf story.

The Story

Anna spends her entire childhood under the care of a mysterious man she only knows as Daddy. He keeps her locked in an attic making her fear the Wildling, a child-eating monster that roams the outside. At age 16, Anna is freed by small-town sheriff Ellen Cooper who helps her start a new life as a normal teenager. But as Anna’s body begins to blossom, her childhood nightmares return with a vengeance, leading to the conclusion of a terrifying secret.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

Wildling is very predictable movie but it is still very entertaining movie.  The movie doesn’t try to shock you with surprise twist in the story.  It is very obvious what the movie is about from the beginning.  But the movie is very well executed movie with great acting from all the actors.  Bel Powley who plays Anna is specially good even though she is 26 years old in time of filming.  Her acting is superb, and she portrays the character extremely well.  Matter of fact she pretty much carries this film by herself.

Although the movie is predictable is it different in a sense that it is trying mix different genres into werewolf story that we all used to.  It is bit of pubescent teen drama, part authentic horror and part whimsical fantasy, and part suspense thriller.  The did fairly good job

Most of the movie is pre-teen drama.  I was hoping to have bit more of horror, but even without it, it still is an entertaining movie.  Towards end of the movie, we do see bit of suspense and some action.  There aren’t much gore and violence, but there some there towards the end.  Werewolf special effects are mostly CGI but it is well done.

I really liked the idea of the Wildling creatures even though we don’t know too much about the creature. I wish they had made the movie just a tad bit longer and fully played out some of the ideas that died towards the end.

Overall the movie was good, nothing award winning. Watch it, enjoy, don’t overthink this.

Wildling is very predictable but it is an interesting take on werewolf story.   [4 out of 5 stars]
