Joseph (Devon Sawa) and his family live in the remote wilderness as fur trappers, but their tranquility is threatened when they think they are being hunted by the return of a rogue wolf, and Joseph leaves them behind to track it.

Rated 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Currently streaming in the US on Hulu.

There is an interesting split in this movie's reviews: 94% fresh on RT, but only a 61% rating on Metacritic. And honestly, that's about right. This is definitely fairly good, but it would hard to sincerely argue it is great. A person's reaction will probably be calibrated based on how interesting they find the premise of an in-the-wrong-time trapper family, how well they like Devon Sawa, and how they feel about the newly sober Nick Stahl returning to film.

I like Sawa and Stahl and the trapper thing was mildly interesting. Not essential and the plot was pretty easy to see coming once Joseph found the bodies, but I don't regret the time.

Side note: this is more of a thriller than a horror movie... until the ending, where it is most definitely a horror movie. Brutal fucking ending.
