A bald-faced rip-off of The Shining, with a crucial difference: Wendigo trades the metaphysics of middle-class murder for the no-budget spectacle of…an incredibly fake-looking monster deer. If this dud had been made in the ’70s, it would have been called The Hills Have Antlers and played for about three weeks in drive-ins. But the writer-director, Larry Fessenden, has become a cult darling among critics, and that, unlike the movie, is kind of scary.
