The Hat Goes Wild

The Hat Goes Wild

A film by Guy Sprung

Movie review

In this thoroughly worthless feature, a group of Montreal teenagers go on a canoe trip in the Quebec backwoods and somehow get stuck in a violent mess involving a large amount of illegal drugs, all of which is immortalized by the camera carried by one of them. Coming off like a godawful student film version of a slasher flick (even though there is no slasher), The Hat Goes Wild features a cast of loathsome characters making a series of spectacularly dumb decisions. The screenplay offers nothing but juvenile bullshit, pseudo-philosophical platitudes and contrived exposition, the acting is rotten (even the usually solid Normand D’Amour embarrasses himself) and the production values are poor even by found-footage film standards.
