A logging company awakes a Wendigo (look it up, then prepare to be let down by their interpretation) by cutting down too many trees, and it creeps into the local small town and the sheriff has to deal with it. This movie really surprised me, it looked like a low budget snoozer that would be maybe pretty enough to interest me, but nothing special. Instead, the acting was pretty good, the story interesting, and the atmosphere was downright creepy - loved the cold light filter on the cameras that turned all scenery blueish. I’ve always been a sucker for the woods. Worth a watch if you like horror movies and don’t mind cheesiness, but you probably won’t like it if you’re a big budget type.
