Over-imaginative twelve year-old Sam heads off to the woods to summer scout camp with his pack convinced he will encounter a monster… and he does.

Reviews:

“Cub is a rock solid piece of genre entertainment presented bluntly and without irony in a singularly focused 85-minute sprint. It’s no masterpiece, but Govaerts delivers a brand of B-movie entertainment that often seems far easier to pull off than it actually is. Let’s hope it’s not long before he gets a chance to stretch with the next one.” Fangoria

“Who doesn’t want to see cub scouts chased around by a monster? But there’s a way to be subversive without becoming an asshole, and sufficed to say Cub shuns it.” Film Freak Central

“If the movie had been scouts versus werewolf-child, it may have been fun, but it would be in direct contradiction to what Govaerts has admirably accomplished with his thoughtful, unnerving, and melancholy picture.” Collider
