Molly Henery – Bloody Mary Festival Review

Wild is notable for its visual stylishness and its blend of drama and horror, but it’s also a powerful, emotionally intimate portrayal of the inner life of children. [..] But like many effective horror films, its monsters and demons are grounded in a difficult emotional truth. In this film, it’s the ferocious sadness of childhood neglect and loneliness, felt by those who in real life are often too young or powerless to make their needs known — and whose pain and anger are often silenced by the world around them.
