Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This stylish twist on a familiar horror movie rubric combines elements of romance and psychological horror with its basic thriller aspects. There is a dark European texture to the telling of the tale, which means horror fans looking for bloody fangs and gory giblets will be disappointed. But those looking for something loftier, more drama than horror, more gothic romance than chilling thriller, will find Wilderness (the title is more poetic than literal) to be a surprisingly refreshing take on the worn out werewolf genre. There are a few erotically charged scenes that are tastefully rendered, and the nifty morphing special effect, when Amanda Ooms zooms from beauty to beast, is sparsely -- and strategically -- used.

Whether Alice is a werewolf or a shape shifter is debatable. The Full Moon forces her transformation, but when she turns she doesn't become a hybrid of wolf and woman. She becomes a full wolf - both in body and mind. Her human self is gone - all evil and all good is gone. Alice grew up on a farm, far from cities. There she was able to let the wolf run free. When she moved to a city she was forced to lock the wolf up. Every Full Moon she was stuck in a basement. She went through the motions of city life - job, fashion, friends, therapy, and relationships. Barely staying sane. Blaming the wolf for all her problems. Always thinking if she could be rid of the wolf, she'd be happy. Eventually she found that hypnosis could affect the wolf. With self-hypnosis she could both change when she wanted to and prevent the change on the Full Moon. Once she could turn at will she explored the wolf, finding that she'd been wrong all along. The wolf was the best part of her. So: She found a nature preserve, where wolves lived. She went there, changed and never turned back. The ending was so beautiful. It showed her, as the wolf, running wild. Freed from all of civilization.
