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
"Fessenden once again subverts the horror genre. The supenatural element is beautifully integrated and the results are quite creepy." Dennis Demody, Paper
"One of the best indie features in years." - Fangoria
"Eeriely unsettling. A finely crafted and superbly acted examination of society's need for myth." - Filmmaker
"Thought-provoking and endlessly creepy." - Philadelphia City Paper
"A smart, adult feature that stands head and shoulders above most genre offerings. One of the best movies I've ever seen at capturing the way children interpret the world around them." - Ain't It Cool News
