Friedrich Bohm directs a twisted fantasy horror, which draws upon universal fears of creatures that lurk in the dark and prey upon unsuspecting children. Anna (Bel Powley) has been forcibly protected from the outside world by her Daddy (Brad Dourif), who reveals that she must remain in isolation behind barred windows to protect her from a ferocious beast called the Wildling. Completely trusting the chilling words of her Daddy, Anna grows up believing in the existence of this beast with razor-sharp teeth. As she matures into a young woman, Anna finds herself unexpectedly separated from her Daddy and placed in the care of town sheriff Ellen (Liv Tyler), who lives with her teenage brother Ray (Collin Kelly-Sordelet). The bright lights and noise of the town are deeply upsetting for Anna, who has grown up in tranquillity and seclusion. The young woman escapes by roaming nearby forests, where she encounters a wolf man (James Le Gros). At the same time, Anna crosses the Rubicon to womanhood and her body undergoes a terrifying and thrilling transformation that coaxes the voracious Wildling out of the shadows.
