Wretch is a slow-burn, psychological horror movie. The whole production is low budget and average but that doesn't really ruin the film at all. The story however is a different story. While it is kind of unique, it is also rather convoluted and confusing. I honestly believe that the creators don't even fully understand the story and were just trying to make the pieces fit together when they got to the end. Even so, it does have a few good moments and it is watchable. I've seen far worse. 4/10

wretched is more like it

If this was suppose to be a horror movie, it was not. I couldn't even begin to tell you what this was or even what it was about. 90% of it is melodrama, and not even interesting melodrama. A small part of it is found footage type film but most of the movie is fairly low-budget cinematography. For the most part it's only 3 actors and they're pretty good considering what they have to work with, but there's nothing more here then some mystery in the woods (how many films about wooded areas do we need ?) In an effort to make it interesting the filmmakers chose to jump around a bit in the story telling, which adds nothing. There is some atmosphere here but this really is not worth the effort to watch, and I have no idea how long it actually is, but it felt 3 hours long. Since it's not horror, there are zero scares and its just a bore, you could watch it for brief snippets of female and male nudity, but believe me, it's not worth it.
STUPIDEST MOVIE EVER! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!

I have to disagree with the crowd

This was a pretty moody and atmospheric movie. Wasn't the normal "young people go to the woods" horror flick. Maybe that's why people were disappointed, I'm not sure. I think the editing could have been tighter, and it as really my chief complaint. The acting was fairly good and the overall product didn't overtly suffer from what was surely a smaller budget. This was really more like a Grimms fairytale. The original stories, not the abridged versions tailored specifically for children.
