Coming of Age Goes Fantastical in Blue My Mind [Review]

Coming of age stories have taken on some interesting supernatural themes. In the last few years alone we've seen movies about a vagina with teeth in Teeth, a young woman who turns out to be more than human in Wildling and the classic Ginger Snaps, and perhaps the most memorable of the bunch, a cannibal teen in Raw. One of the most recent additions to the subgenre is Lisa Bruhlmann's Blue My Mind.

Luna Wedler is Mia, the new girl in town. Her father has moved the family for work and Mia finds herself trying to make friends at a new school partway through the school year. Facing an uphill battle, she starts to push boundaries in an effort to make friends and her efforts quickly pay off; skipping class, shoplifting and lying to her parents opens the doo

At 15 years of age, Mia is in the throes of puberty; like her peers, her body is going through changes—but she’d no ordinary girl.

Tiff 2018 Review: Freaks is an Impressive, Ambitious, and Gritty Sci-Fi Thriller

  • DailyDead
Directed by Adam Stein and Zach Lipovsky, Freaks effectively proves that you don’t need an overstuffed budget to create thrilling and innovative science fiction stories for the big screen, with the duo instead relying on a well-crafted and character-driven script, as well as some cleverly utilized digital tricks, never allowing any budgetary constraints to get in the way of their ambition as filmmakers looking to make their mark. Suffice to say, Freaks is the real deal, and features a trio of impressive performances from Bruce Dern, Emile Hirsch, and relative newcomer Lexy Kolker, who more than holds her own against her older cast mates.

Freaks introduces us to the world of the “Abnormals” (or “Freaks” for those who are a little less sensitive when it comes to labeling people who are different than others), a sizable portion of the population who have developed certain psycho-kinetic abilities, which understandably scares

Fantasia 2018: ‘Blue My Mind’ Review: Dir. Lisa Brühlmann (2018)

Blue My Mind review: The teenage girl transformation to woman gets another genre slant in this Swiss-German fairytale.

Blue My Mind review by Kat Hughes.

Blue My Mind Review

Over the last few years genre cinema has developed a trend for telling their tales through the female teenage experience. It’s a tumultuous time and that lends itself perfectly to the more macabre cinema. Ginger Snaps, Raw, and most recently Wildling, have used this environment to tell their stories, and now comes Blue My Mind. Whilst not necessarily as horrific in tone as some of the aforementioned films, Blue My Mind will take some true grit to get through as it’s not the easiest of watches.

Our story follows Mia (Luna Wedler), the new girl in a new school. In a bid to fit in, she sets her sights on joining the gang of cool troublemakers. As she embarks on her mission,

‘The Dark’ Is A Clunky, Simplistic Horror Film That Falls Back On Outdated Tropes [Tribeca Review]

Female monsters are in vogue again, after their frequent occurrence in ’80s and ’90s horror films like “Misery,” “The Craft,” and “The Entity.” Recent indie flicks, from “Thoroughbreds” to “Wildling,” ruminate on the complex place at which terror and girlhood intersect. It’s rich subject matter for the genre: women’s oppression, these films argue, can spur females to do unspeakable, difficult things.

Wildling review by Kat Hughes.

Wildling Review

Anna (Bel Powley) has spent her life behind a closed door in a remote cabin in the woods, looked after by a man known simply as ‘Daddy’ (Brad Dourif). She lives in complete seclusion from the wider world and has been raised to fear a monster called ‘The Wildling’. Anna’s world is shattered when Sheriff Ellen Cooper (Liv Tyler) stumbles across the desolate dwelling and takes Anna into her care. Now out of the control of Daddy, Anna begins to experience the world outside her window for the first time. Everything is exciting at first, but then things start to get strange as she starts to realise that secrets from

Blue My Mind Review [What The Fest!? 2018]

There’s been a quite interesting subgenre outburst of late that draws parallel relationships between coming-of-age sexual awakenings and creature transformations. Werewolves, amphibious swimmers, forest beasties – films like Blue My Mind, about bodily explorations based on youthful changes that cannot be contained. Director Lisa Brühlmann focuses not on vicious animal attacks as Wildling or The Lure does, falling more in line with something heady like When Animals Dream. How perfect a metaphor? Straight forward soul-searching dramas of youth like Lady Bird and The Edge Of Seventeen are not without their own “monster moments” – genrefication just adds another uninhibited layer of depth and scaly intrigue.

Brühlmann’s muse is 15-year-old Mia (Luna Wedler), dropped into a new hometown after her parents’ recent move. This means finding new friends and avoiding “fresh meat” hazing at school, which she does by befriending posh cool-girl Gianna (Zoë Pastelle Holthuizen). After a few showings of good faith,

Trailer For The Horror Film Wildling offers a Unique Take on The Werewolf Genre

A trailer has been released for an upcoming new horror film called Wildling and I really like what I'm seeing from it. The story seems to offer us an intriguing and unique take on the werewolf genre. The movie has a great cast that includes Liv Tyler (The Lord of the Rings), Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings), and Bel Powly. I look forward to checking this out!

A teenage girl’s coming of age comes with a terrifying twist in this spellbinding take on the werewolf legend. Since birth, Anna (Bel Powley) has been raised in isolation by a man she knows only as Daddy (Chucky star Brad Dourif) who has done everything possible to conceal the truth about the girl’s origins from her. But when the teenage Anna is suddenly thrust into the real world under the protection of no-nonsense police officer Ellen (Liv Tyler), it

‘Wildling’ Trailer: Bel Powley Goes Horror In The Diary of a Teenage Werewolf

Any good coming of age story needs a great hook to differentiate it from the sea of coming of age movies. So, what separates the upcoming film “Wildling” from the bunch? It’s a horror movie about a girl who may or may not be a werewolf. Sign me up, immediately.

The film premiered at SXSW earlier this month just after IFC Midnight picked it up. “Wildling” seems like a natural fit for the horror distribution company.

Trailer Watch: Bel Powley Is Held Captive in Creature Feature “Wildling”

“Wildling”

Bel Powley wakes up in a hospital room in a new trailer for “Wildling.” The werewolf thriller sees the “Diary of a Teenage Girl” star playing Anna, a teen who has been raised in isolation since birth. Her father locks her in an attic and convinces her that it’s the only place safe from the “wildling.” “His teeth are sharp and so are his nails,” he warns her. “He ate all the other children. You’re the last one left.” It’s only when she wakes up in the ER under mysterious circumstances — and later attends high school — that Anna realizes the outside world is nothing like her father told her. Or at least it seems that way at first.

Anna’s transition to the real world is guided by Ellen (Liv Tyler), a police officer determined to help the teen and find answers about what exactly has happened to her.
