The Windigo is a 2021 American horror film about an Indigenous American family that summons up an uncontrollable demon to protect them.

An ancient Chippewa demon, the Windigo, is resurrected by an Indigenous American teenager and his grandmother to protect their family after a run-in with back-woods meth dealers. They soon discover that the creature’s lust for killing cannot be controlled.
