About the Movie
The new film from Amat Escalante (Cannes Film Festival best director winner for “Heli”) follows young mother Alejandra whose life is disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious woman, Veronica. She introduces her to an isolated cabin in the woods where an otherworldly creature dwells, a source of great pleasure but also great danger. THE UNTAMED “does that very rare thing in cinema in that it blends mystery, horror and pseudo-reality with a kind of dark subconscious arousal” (The Film Stage).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: There is a fine line between horror and humor, and if you adjust your angle of vision accordingly, you can see the architecture of farce beneath the ornamentation of shock and suffering.
Fresh: ...a fantastical premise collides with Escalante's solemn realism, making for a quiet, unforgettable mash-up, inspired by director Andrzej Zulawski's Possession.
Fresh: A carefully controlled tone, which never jumps into full-blown luridness despite ample opportunity to do so, helps us believe in the severity of the situation and the struggles of the characters.
Fresh: [Amat Escalante's] film may lack the subtlety of Val Lewton's famously allusive RKO chillers, but there's the same sense that the shadowy rooms braved by the characters are no less than the human psyche itself.
I will bet $$$ these RT reviews are complete BS. Don't be fooled. You read it here first... the following reviews, if any will bear the truth.
Utterly meaningless drek.
Had it been made in Hollywood it would have been rightfully panned.
