Karl Crabtree: See! I told you! That wasn't no bear I shot at. I ain't crazy. It was some sort of wild, crazy man out there. Some... half breed.

A perfect sequel for Texas Chainsaw Massacre
11 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Wild Man of the Navidad is as authentic as a retro horror film can get. Every detail from the garish 'Tenocolour' opening credits, down to the local yokels delivering their stilted dialogue, seems to have been deliberately crafted to give the impression that one is watching an old school slasher film/public television documentary from the early 80s. The only reminder that one was watching a modern film was a hunter's wife wearing a noughties-style outfit halfway through the film. If it weren't for that detail, I would have doubted that I was watching a film from the 21st century.

Other reviewers critiqued the films flaws but to me it was obvious that these flaws are intentionally left in, because they add so much to the retro B-movie vibe. That the film isn't technically perfect just shows the film makers expertise in making retro films. I found the characters amusingly whacked-out and the Wild Man scenario a funny, bizarre variation on the Texan massacre theme. It wasn't the scariest film ever but the wild man attacks kept the action moving along at a fast pace.

So if you are in the mood for an twisted but fun little horror flick then The Wild Man of the Navidad is the movie for you.
