Trailer First Impressions
WTF! yields the conventional technique to slasher Horror. The narrative revolves around basic in character and story development. The template places a group of teens venturing to a cabin in the woods. Liquor, drugs, and sex develop into the roster of activities. Soon the jovial revelers fight for survival as they become prey to a psychotic serial killer. Tossed in the mix is a basic backstory on a female character. With the latter, it is likely this role will emerge into a defining protagonist.
One particular element not emphasized in the trailer is the executioner’s identity or aesthetic. This can only mean one thing, a twist in the closing. The narrative can drift onto one of two outlines. The first theory places the afflicted young woman as the killer. Based on the trailer, this individual becomes the sole survivor of the carnage. Either she is the killer or somehow defeated the killer. This leads to the second theory. Maybe the entire murder spree was an elaborate hoax. Yet, the second option does not seem likely given how the trailer develops.
There were some nice established shots presented in the WTF! trailer. Yet, the acting was fruitful with a B-movie like-quality. The poster art for WTF! suggests the film is rich in gore factor. Yet, a lack of defining kills will place the advertising as a misleading lure. It would be interesting to see the practical effects used in the film.
