    just a damn funny horror satire

    There’s nothing too deep to intellectualize with a movie like Wild Men.
    It may have something under the surface that one can try and parse out
    as far as meanings about the search for something one doesn’t (or does)
    believe in, or the trauma of seeing a, you know, parent mauled by a
    giant Sasquatch. But what it comes down to is that Bobby Sansivero, on
    his first movie, knew what he was doing and made a comedy that works,
    on a few levels.

    The first is that it takes on reality shows, where people hunt ghosts
    or (I think it actually is as thing) go after Bigfoot (or Bigfeet,
    what’s the plural word for that?), and how deadly serious the people on
    the show take themselves. Pompousness is always something fun to mock,
    and it helps that Zack Abramowitz, who is very good here as Richard
    ”Dick Hefelfinger (sic) is surrounded by people who sometimes are on
    his side and other times call him out on his fervent ways (Erin
    MacDonald is excellent in such a role as the actual scientist with the
    TV crew looking for Bigfoot).

    The other way this works is that it’s meant to be a horror movie, but
    understands that by now the style that worked years back with Blair
    Witch, found footage, is not only ripe for parody it’s the only way to
    go since that too has taken itself too seriously and often with
    character’s we’re meant to sympathize with and come off like a**holes.
    In this, it’s intentional that most of the characters are unsympathetic
    and jerks and B-words and so on, and there’s a lot of
    don’t-give-a-f***ery with the crew that stands out. Another character,
    played in a very funny turn by Alexander Stine, is the one who
    especially stands out as a total slob and tool, and yet the movie is
    always aware of it and all the funnier for it.

    And lastly it’s that the movie knows how to build up to laughs and find
    the moments that will make the comedy work. It’s not an especially
    subtle kind of comedy – it’s big, it’s sloppy, it’s got types and
    running gags like Dick continually hitting on an intern (which is both
    funny and creepy in one scene) – but I was in the mood for it, and it
    hit the majority of the marks it was aiming for. It goes for the
    awkward Office-style stuff, and Sansivero and company also don’t shy
    away from gruesome carnage and things like ribbed limbs and severed
    heads and gushing blood and so on, and it has a Dead Alive feel in
    certain moments (again, a funny and inspired touch). Is it some great
    masterpiece of the genre? Maybe not. But I had fun with it, and if you
    know what you’re getting then you will too.
