This is the latest film from Larry Fessenden, who brought us Habit a few years ago. Whereas Habit was a refreshingly realistic take on vampirism, Wendigo tackles an altogether new mythological creature — a force of nature that takes on the shape of a deer-like creature. Shot on super 16 and blown up to 35, the film itself looked great (I actually thought it was shot on 35). Like Habit, the story had a very relaxed pace that allowed the actors room to make everything seem believable, and was subtle enough that an argument could be made for the fantastic elements to be inside people’s heads rather than really “out there.” C.U. Film Studies alumni Dayton Taylor makes an obvious contribution with one of the special effects scenes that provides a frozen-moment panorama, something people are starting to see more often now that The Matrix has made it popular.
