Wendigo
2 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Wendigo is a formidable creature of Native American mythology. Formidable and extremely nasty. Here it is both those things and extremely silly. If by twenty minutes into this film you don't realise it isn't to be taken seriously, you really need to check your humour gauge. Having said that, some humour just isn't funny. If this film has any strengths at all it is the soundtrack and some half-decent special effects. It has a plot too, the gate to Hell has been opened, its guardian has been murdered, and a new one has been summoned to close it. This is far from original, see for example the 1977 film "The Sentinel", wherein the role of the guardian is not revealed until the end. Here it is a young woman who is visited in a dream by the ghost of the newly slain guardian. She makes her way to a desolate Canadian island to complete her mission, and stumbles into not just the Wendigo but a bunch of idiots.

After this film, our heroine Lori Baker appears to have made only one more, two years later, which is hardly surprising; putting "Wendigo" on her CV must have been the kiss of death for her acting career.
