Wendigo (2001)
Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 at midnight:

New Beverly Midnights presents

2001, USA, 91 minutes, 35mm, Magnolia Pictures
Written and directed by Larry Fessenden
Starring Patricia Clarkson, Jake Weber, Erik Per Sullivan
Sat: midnight (11:59 pm)


Synopsis courtesy of Magnolia Pictures:

A blue Volvo makes its way through the fading light on a chilly winter evening in Upstate New York. Kim (Patricia Clarkson), George (Jake Weber) and their eight-year old son, Miles (Erik Per Sullivan), are city dwellers stealing a weekend away at a friend's country farmhouse. But a fluke accident sets off a chain of events that alters their lives forever and conjures up the ferocious spirit of the Wendigo, a Native American Myth made manifest in Miles' imagination.

With stark simplicity, this eerie fable draws us into the potent imagination of Miles as he struggles to make sense of a wicked and arbitrary tragedy. Writer/director/editor Fessenden (HABIT, NO TELLING) crafts a kaleidoscope of sounds, images, puppetry and cinematic tricks to make a visceral analogue film-poem about existential angst, the power of myth, the relativity of revenge and the perpetuation of aggression through time.


"Strongly atmospheric, intelligent and just plain scary. A provocative piece of entertainment."
- John Anderson, Newsday

"Fessenden has created a trio of films that would make Roman Polanski proud."
- Anthony Kaufman, Indiewire

"A nifty supernatural thriller of suggestion and foreboding".
- J. Hoberman, Village Voice

"SPECTACULARLY SMART AND SCARY! If you need proof that understated chills are far more frightening than bursts of bombastic gore, look no further than this spine-shivering example. It makes most of Hollywood's big-budget fakery look laughably tame"
- David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor

"Sends actual chills up your spine."
- Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine

"Uniquely haunting"
- Amy Taubin, Village Voice

"Fessenden's films corner the market on pervasive dread. They take horror's bogeymen and rethink them in fiercely unusual ways."
- Maitland Mc Donagh, Time Out

"A darkly beautiful, genuinely scary movie."
- LA Weekly


Screening format: 35mm
