Wildling is a sweet yet also haunting movie featuring a wonderful performance from the young and on-the-rise talent of Bel Powley while her more experienced co-stars with Brad Dourif and Liv Tyler both had some great scenes.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Since birth, Anna (BEL POWLEY) has been raised in isolation by a man she knows only as Daddy (BRAD DOURIF). He has done everything possible to conceal the truth about her origins from her. But when the teenage Anna is suddenly thrust into the real world under the protection of no-nonsense Sheriff Ellen Cooper (LIV TYLER), it soon becomes clear that she is far from ordinary.

Unable to adjust to a normal life, Anna finds herself drawn instead to the wild freedom of the forest while struggling to resist the growing bloodlust that has awakened inside of her.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 2.25/5


This release comes with a matted slip cover but features wise, it’s limited with 10 Deleted Scenes (5:41; HD), some Outtakes (4:09; HD) and the Theatrical Trailer (2:17; HD).

 


VIDEO – 3.75/5, AUDIO – 4.0/5


Shout Factory releases Wildling onto Blu-ray where it is presented with a 2.40 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture is relatively sharp while colors are muted in keeping with the darker tones of the story and black levels appear fairly stark. On the downside, there is some banding but nothing overly distracting.

The disc includes a strong though basic DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which outputs crisp and clear dialogue levels and some nice surrounds with ambient noises that especially comes to life during the finale.


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, Wildling is a sweet yet also haunting movie featuring a wonderful performance from the young and on-the-rise talent of Bel Powley while her more experienced co-stars with Brad Dourif and Liv Tyler both had some great scenes. The Blu-ray release offers good video and audio transfers and limited bonus material.
