SXSW 2018: Fritz Böhm on Challenging Werewolf Tropes in Wildling

Published

on

Out of SXSW Convention, we’ve got another video interview, this time with German director Fritz Böhm, whose werewolf film Wildling saw its world premiere at the festival. Starring Bel Powley as a young woman thrown into a completely new world, and faced with a terrifying transformation, Wildling is a new entry into the werewolf horror genre, one that challenges tropes and expectations.

The film follows Anna (Bel Powley), a woman who spent her entire childhood locked in the attic, under the care of a mysterious man she only knows as Daddy (Brad Dourif). Anna is scared to death of a creature he calls the Wildling, a child-eating monster that roams outside. After a small-town sheriff Ellen Cooper (Liv Tyler) frees Anna and helps her start a new life, her childhood nightmares of the Wildling return, disrupting the possibility of a normal life.

Powley stars alongside Liv Tyler and Brad Dourif. The film will be released theatrically and on VOD on April 13 through IFC Midnight.
