This movie is a traumatizing experience that I could not sit through and would rather be without. You have a responsibility when you make a movie to not harm your audience that are emotionally invested. It disguises itself as a psychological thriller but then turns into a snuff flick. I really tried to understand what the point of Jeffrey Wright's character was. I really tried to understand why everyone had to die in the most graphic ways. I think I'm better off just assuming that there is no point and that they all die in the end. Don't let the atmosphere of the movie activate your empathy, you will be betrayed.

If you have 2 hours spare, I'd suggest you sit and stare at a wall, patiently wait for some grass to grow , or perhaps paint a wall and watch it dry.
This movie is a mess. Slow, boring, utterly nonsensical!I'll be reconsidering my choice to sit through anything with any given Skarsgaard in that's for sure.
The only thing that could have saved this movie ( not even a Skaarsgard or Elvis' granddaughter) is the wolves, which although the main synopsis of the movie is about, seem to be forgotten along with any semblance of a plot.
I loved Green Room, but this was a very different movie. I don't really know what to make of it, because it is a film that doesn't have much of a plot, has characters that rarely speak, and is quite a slow burn. This is the kind of film that if you half-watch whilst doing something else, you would almost certainly hate it.
So the setup for the film doesn't matter really because within the first 20 minutes it has gone off those rails, but the setup is that a woman's child has been taken by wolves (the third child in the town to have gone missing) and so she writes a letter to a wildlife expert and author to come to Alaska and hunt down the wolves that did it. The film takes so many twists and turns very suddenly and abruptly that by the time it ends you kinda forget that this is how it started. The film is more concerned with tone, atmosphere and theme than it is with character or plot.
As expected the film is pretty damn violent. Not quite Green Room-level, but when it happens you feel it. It also happens very abruptly and suddenly, with little to no hint that anything is about to happen.
Overall the film reminded me of so many other films, but stands on its own as something unlike any of them. It had elements of Wind River, The VVitch, The Grey and Prisoners, but it really is a unique movie. It is somewhere between a 6/10 and a 7/10 for me but it is interesting and unique enough for me to say 7/10 for now. Definitely need to rewatch it.
