Horror Cinema: Wake Wood

Movie review
David Keating’s Wake Wood

I came across Wake Wood last night. It’s a supernatural horror film set in Northern Ireland, and its ambience and story-telling were excellent. In addition to the gore throughout the movie (mostly with livestock, but still unnerving), I liked the character development. Towards the last quarter of the movie, it was a thrill-ride to see one of the main character’s bad decisions coming back to haunt him. The best part: a horrific little girl villain.
