Wild Will

A haunting experimental thriller that will chill, startle and intrigue.
5/5

Review

Alan King’s experimental thriller takes a daring leap into new territory and delivers a remarkable and spine-tingling experience. The film revolves around police radio recordings, immersing viewers in a primarily audial narrative that leaves them on the edge of their seats throughout.

The story centers around an encounter with an unhinged dogcatcher who is brought in for questioning after roaming the streets. King, who voices the role of the Sergeant, as well as the visualisation of the dogcatcher, showcases his talent with haunting authenticity. Brett Cousins, as the cop, delivers a stellar performance that adds to the film’s gripping intensity.

What starts as a seemingly routine night of duty rapidly descends into a nightmarish blend of psychopathy and the paranormal. King’s decision to focus on audio, while teasing viewers with limited visuals, is a stroke of brilliance. This unique approach to suspense builds tension and leaves the audience’s imagination running wild.

The voice acting is nothing short of incredible. The chilling performances from King and Cousins bring the characters to life, leaving viewers captivated and disturbed. The limited visuals only serve to enhance the overall impact, allowing the audience to become fully engrossed in the audial experience.

Clocking in at just the right length, ‘Wild Will’ is a bone-chilling and gritty short film that surpasses expectations. King’s direction and storytelling prowess shine through, leaving viewers craving more. This audial thriller is a testament to the power of sound and its ability to evoke fear and leave an indelible impression.

This is a highly recommended short film that pushes boundaries and delivers an unforgettable cinematic experience. With its exceptional acting, audial storytelling, and bone-chilling suspense, Alan King has crafted a truly remarkable and haunting piece of cinema.
