REVIEW: My Animal (2023) - Starring Amandla Stenberg and Bobbi Salvör Menuez

"My Animal," directed by Jacqueline Castel, presents a blend of supernatural horror, romance, and the struggles of teenage life in a small northern town. The film, while not without its merits, ultimately falls short due to its plot execution, uneven acting performances, and a lack of genuine horror elements.

The plot revolves around Heather, an aspiring goalie in a hockey-obsessed town, grappling with her tumultuous relationship with her alcoholic mother, Patti. Heather's budding romance with newcomer Jonny, a tormented figure skater, forms a central aspect of the story. Their relationship unfolds amidst the challenges of Heather's hidden sexual orientation and a familial curse that transforms her into a feral wolf under the full moon.
