...good call on giving jake weber his props, old man. he's been good in everything i've seen him in (particularly 'dangerous beauty' and 'meet joe black'). he was actually born in england - you think tim roth and jake were seprated at birth? BTW, top-shelf reportage from montreal so far - you're getting me psyched to see a lot of these movies.

Saw Wendigo at the Philadelphi Film Festival, and thought it fell short of being what it could have been. Loved the way the scene with the deer was shot, the film lost that edge for a while in the middle. The sex scene on the couch cuts the legs from out of the film - it was incredibly base for such a loving couple, and in my opinion, ruined the film's shot at an R rating (and subsequently, a wide release).

I never really had any respect for Moriarty's opinions, but now I don't feel so bad about it. I saw Wendigo maybe six months ago with two other people. After about 20 minutes into the, granted, interesting opening, the terrible acting and amatuer directing became overwhelming, so we all agreed to fast forward through the rest of it... and we did not miss a thing. It's pure, unadultarated garbage. The acting is atrocious. The guy in the deer costume... you gotta be kidding me... it was ridiculous! I wonder how much Moriarty's being paid...

It's called Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo. Made in 1989 or so. Picked up by Troma.
