More Detail:

A CRY IN THE WILD tells the story of a 13-year-old boy marooned in the northern wilderness and forced to fend for himself. It harkens back to the days of the family matinee and is a solid well-crafted feature that should appeal to children up to the early teens, while also providing entertainment for mom, pop, grandma, and grandpa.

We first meet Brian Robeson being outfitted by his mother for a trip to visit his divorced father in a distant northern oil field. Brian is dispatched in a single engine plane to spend the summer with his father in Canada, but the pilot has a heart attack as he flies over the vast uncharted wilderness.

In a surprisingly adept action sequence, Brian crash lands the plane in a lake and swims to shore, saving only the hatchet that his mother bought for him. Out of necessity, Brian experiments with various food stuffs, vomiting up inedible berries until, copying the action of a black bear, he supplants his meager diet of raspberries with squirming grubs and worms.

As days pass, Brian uses his ingenuity to fish, make fires and even build a crude shelter after his cave is invaded by raccoons and porcupines. His greatest danger, though, is the bear with whom he has a bloody fight to the finish when it comes to reclaim its den.

Along with the action, Brian has dreams and flashbacks to the time when he witnessed the wifely adultery that led to the breakup of his parents’ marriage and family’s disintegration. The devastating effects of marital infidelity and divorce on children are powerfully shown, clearly revealing Brian’s present emotions and deepening our understanding of Brian’s inner resources. Unfortunately, a positive parental role model or a resolution of the divorce is never presented.

Finally, a storm lifts the crashed plane to the surface of the lake, and Brian paddles out to fetch the craft’s survival kit. There are some gruesome make-up effects with the decomposing pilot who is still in the cabin.

The scenery of the trackless northern wilderness is beautiful. Much of the camera work is reminiscent of 1989’s THE BEAR. There is a somewhat bloody fight with the bear, but for the most part, A CRY IN THE WILD is good family entertainment. Though Brian goes “skinny-dipping” and is shown briefly nude from the rear, it is really not offensive, since the film is more concerned showing how Brian uses his ingenuity to fashion together a bow and arrow and a spear. A slight caution is issued for a few obscenities.

A Cry in the Wild

Review by Bryn Roar

A cry in the wild 1990.

Rewatched Jan 25 , 2021

Bryn Roar’s review published on Letterboxd:

I bought this dvd for a young friend of mine for Christmas. He loves the book Hatchet (as do I), and I remembered seeing this years before on PBS. When I looked it up, I couldn't find it though. Turns out they changed the title to "A Cry in the Wild." Unfortunately, that wasn't the only change from the Newberry Award Winning book. Jared Rushton plays the title role of Bryan, a young boy stranded in the Canadian wilderness when the pilot of the single engine plane he was flying in has a heart attack and crashes into a remote lake. Rushton, if you don't recall, played the best friend of Josh Baskin in "Big." Anyway, Bryan survives by luck and the grace of God looking out for his dumb ass. He stumbles unto how to make fire and learns a little along the way, but not nearly as much as the earnest young character from the book. That was disappointing to both myself and my buddy's young son. This Bryan doesn't plan ahead but rushes headlong into disaster. The worst scene for us was watching Bryan toss aside precious survival equipment he just retrieved from the plane in the lake, as he dug into the backpack with about as much glee as a kid opening up a pair of socks on Christmas morning. "Gee, thanks, mom. Just what I wanted." Here he is, not having had a decent meal in over two weeks, and he practically yawns at the cornucopia of freeze dried goodies laying before his starving eyes. All I can say, is the director must not have given a shit either by that point, cause he lets the young actor crash and burn without giving him some much needed guidance. That said, there's a reason why this book is the most popular among young preteen boys. Well, next to Harry Potter and Captain Underpants, that is. A good story is a damn good story, and even these halfwits couldn't totally screw the pooch with the screenplay at their disposal. The beautiful locales sure helped to drive the story forward and ease the pain of some halfassed acting and direction. It was easy to imagine yourself in the same situation as Bryan. Thinking how you might have done something different. This outdoor adventure stuff is catnip for boys growing up to be men. "A boy and his hatchet make good in the wilderness!" Next time you find yourself in Bryan's situation, though, take along one of those newfangled hatches with flint and fishing line and hooks inside the handle. Makes it so much easier to catch and cook your next meal. Don't bother with the movie, though. Read the book instead. So much better.

'In A Violent Nature' has the year's most intense ending. Here's what it means.

A man wearing a mask is seen from behind as he walks through the woods.

Chris Nash's inverted slasher In A Violent Nature — one of the year's most inventive horror films — is now available on VOD. It's a relief it wasn't a bigger hit, or else it might have done for forest trails what Spielberg's Jaws once did for sharks . A deeply unsettling work told mostly from the perspective of a bloodthirsty killer, it recalls the premise and iconography of major masked villains across the decades, but wraps its story in the visual parlance of atmospheric "slow cinema," resulting less in startling thrills and more in creeping existential dread.

The film's use of POV has been much-discussed, but its ending is equally strange and subversive, adding a unique exclamation point to the whole affair. In A Violent Nature , through its genre deconstructions and surprisingly considered visual approach, nestles a story of — as its title suggests — the nature of violence, both as a human impulse and as a catalyst for horror cinema. All of this leads to a quiet crescendo, in the form of an unbearably tense vice grip that never yields, even once the credits have rolled.

Here's Johnny: In A Violent Nature 's instantly-iconic killer

Slasher movies live or die based on their central killers. While more recent mainstays like Jigsaw and Ghostface (from the Saw and Scream movies, respectively) have an intellect bent with complex motives (relatively speaking), classic villains like Friday the 13th 's Jason Voorhees, Halloween 's Michael Meyers, and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 's Leatherface embody a sense of unstoppable malice.

Johnny from In A Violent Nature belongs to that latter group, beginning with his emergence from being buried beneath the ground — a rebirth into what is eventually revealed to be a vicious cycle of killings — and because he seems instinctively driven to slash his way through the Ontario wilderness. It also helps that he has a memorable outfit: simple, tattered lumberjack plaid turned mysterious thanks to a vintage firefighter mask and the chained grip hooks that accompany it.

A close-up of a man with bloody hands wearing an old firefighter mask.

Equally accessorized with the rusty and rustic, he lumbers his way through thickets and campsites — accompanied by Michelle Hwu's ambient sound design — in the hopes of recovering a locket from a band of rowdy twentysomethings who unknowingly picked it up. The item, through one brief daydream, is revealed as tied to his childhood. This motive, at first, seems like a conveniently tacked on explanation to justify his steady rampage, but his very first on-screen kill is disguised with unexpected panache. With his victim helplessly caught in a bear trap, Johnny reaches for his face, only for the movie to cut to several minutes later, as the killer's stout and rotting hand — now soaked in blood — reaches for a locket he thinks is his, in one continuous motion.

This oblique cut is the first of several that denies the viewer the complete satisfaction of on-screen gore (don't fret; there's still plenty of that), but it also lends credence to the idea that something palpable, and perhaps fundamentally human, lies beneath Johnny's inhumane compulsions. That Johnny seems, at first, Terminator-esque in his one-tracked drive is also a function of Nash initially refusing to reveal the killer's face, even when he's unmasked. However, the film reveals Johnny's monstrous complexion at a moment that challenges the implications of his appearance. The first time we see his glassy eyes, infected teeth, and decomposing flesh happens to be when he sits down to play with a toy car. Like Jason and Leatherface, he appears to be constrained by arrested development.

None of this changes his or the movie's overarching trajectory — Johnny soon continues his vicious killing spree — but fleshing the character out this way is part and parcel of the movie's injection of melancholy into what might otherwise be cheap thrills.

In A Violent Nature is aesthetically rich slasher cinema

In A Violent Nature has a few of the most hilariously inventive kills in slasher cinema, but it also wrestles with its own violence in uncomfortable ways. There is, perhaps, only one death that plays out to its fullest potential in terms of sick satisfaction (the lady on the ledge; you'll know it when you see it), because for the most part, the film is designed to deny the thrilling release of on-screen bloodshed.

One kill unfolds entirely underwater, out of view. Another, up against a tree, cuts away during its most squelching moments. If he's in search of some catharsis, Johnny's drive to violence seems to help him almost achieve it, but each kill requires another. Nash's placement of the camera enhances this sense of forward momentum; we're almost always following Johnny from behind as he marches toward some unattainable goal.

Along the way, Nash and cinematographer Pierce Derks' use of digital noise replicates film grain, ramping up the visual tension even within stillness — as though the frame were pulsing and alive — while giving the movie a photographic quality reminiscent of celluloid. While shot on the Canon C70, it resembles an eerie 16-millimeter found footage discovery, further enhanced by its narrow 4:3 aspect ratio. This mimicry of film extends to the use of halation: sunlight pierces the corners of the frame in uncanny ways, creating a halo effect around Johnny, making him seem like a creature plucked out of time — like something that has always existed in these woods.

While there's arguably a finite timeline to Johnny's story — rumors and urban legends place his origin a few decades prior — nothing precludes his evocation of a Michael Meyers-esque embodiment of evil, who revels in (or at least, tries to revel in) his vicious handiwork. These echoes burrow their way under your skin, and become all the more viscerally upsetting as the film begins to focus on death not just as entertainment but as inevitability.

The aforementioned woman on the ledge (Charlotte Creaghan), though she becomes a victim of cartoonish brutality, has a rare and poignant moment of acceptance right before her death. She doesn’t resist. A later victim, the Park Ranger (Reece Presley), becomes the center of one of the most ghastly and sadistic on-screen killings in recent slasher cinema, though not because of its actual bloodshed. Rather, Johnny breaks the Ranger's spine, paralyzing him and forcing him, and us, to watch — in an unbroken three-minute take — as he's slowly dismembered (and eventually, beheaded) by logging equipment. He can’t resist either.

Accompanied only by mechanical rumbling, this kill in particular completes the movie's transformation from something thrilling, wherein death lurks around every corner, to something deeply sad, in which the camera unflinchingly portrays death head on, with no possibility of escape. All of this builds to the movie's stunning climax, a final 20 minutes that proves intensely nerve-wracking, despite the fact that Johnny isn't even on screen.

In A Violent Nature ramps up the intensity during its quiet climax

The movie's "final girl," Kris (Andrea Pavlovic) is, like her group of friends, marked for death by her proximity to the man who initially stole Johnny’s locket. When she realizes the kind of unrelenting force she's up against, Kris runs away as fast as she can, all but leaving the movie's core premise behind. But before she escapes, the camera lingers on her unbroken stare, as Johnny executes her friend. There's something fearfully paralyzing about what she sees, but also, on the level of an audience expecting cathartic payoff, there's something enrapturing too — Kris lingers just a hair longer than any real person might.

As she runs helter-skelter through the darkened woods, the film briefly resembles the claustrophobic horrors of The Blair Witch Project , but it soon allows her an escape when she reaches a dirt road and flags down a pickup truck, à la the original Texas Chain Saw . During these climactic moments, there are plenty of shots that feel like they could serve as emphatic final images — from Johnny slashing away at a long-dead victim, to Kris charging through the forest (and eventually, standing still on the road) — thus concluding the movie in a state of unrest.

However, Nash prolongs this restlessness well beyond what might feel most rhythmic, or cinematically "correct," by essentially extending the movie beyond its natural life, into an extra act as Kris hitches a ride with a helpful woman (Lauren Taylor, of Friday the 13th Part 2 ). It's here, perhaps more than any other moment in the film, that the genre's expectations come charging into play, from the slasher’s proclivity for "one final scare" to the creeping suspicion of an accomplice (the driver seems to be familiar with the dangers lurking in the woods).

Through shaky, claustrophobic closeups, Nash ratchets up the nauseating tension amidst this car ride, during which it feels violence could erupt at any moment. The aforementioned sound design, involving rusting trees and trilling insects, becomes louder and more harrowing, as though the forest itself were cursed. By sticking with Johnny's perspective through most of the film, Nash turns the concept of the cinematic gaze into something malevolent. When the movie finally leaves Johnny behind, switching its POV to Kris, it can't help but echo this sensation, a lingering feeling verging on the desire for on-screen violence. Watching these final minutes unfold involves not just expecting some vicious eruption, but on some level, yearning for it, as though it were the only possible escape from Kris' newfound paranoia.

This is, on one hand, a deft aesthetic embodiment of the way trauma seeps its way into your bones. But it is also wildly self-reflexive as a postscript to a horror film, as though Johnny's unrelenting thoughts of violence had, in some way, been transferred to Kris' psyche, through the mere act of her witnessing his executions — as an enraptured audience member cursed with the instinct to look away, but the desire to keep watching.
