          I think at this point I've figured out how to act. For example, I take my dogs on long walks through the forest and often I'll hear whispering and laughing very close to me, just off the trail (private property, no one else around for miles). As long as I don't look at whatever's making the noise I think I'll be fine, my dogs seem to agree as they start acting nervous and try to slink away from the area as fast as they can.

        He owned many acres of forested swamp land were he grew up and spent much of his time out there fishing and repairing boats and shit. He said when he was young, nobody in the area ever went around the woods at night for fear of these "little men".

    I used to live on 4 acres of forested property in Michigan growing up, sub divisions around us but there would always be deer or other wildlife like foxes. One of these sub divisions bordered our property and my friends and I would hang out late as teens and walk through the forested back woods to get to their houses in the sub.

    One night I walked my friend back to his house from my place and then made my trip home alone through my woods. My dad and I made the trails together so I knew my way in the darkness in the middle of the night, and I didnt have a light source with me, but I turned the corner of a path near the last few hundred feet of forested trail before it opens into my backyard, and there was a giant 7/8ft tall white humanoid figure standing in front of me, with longer arms than a person would have - I looked at it long enough to acknowledge it wasn't human (less than 1sec) and then my fight or flight response kicked in and I ran for my life. I always try to rationalize it like what if it was a whitetail deer from behind or something else...but I can't logically explain it. I've shared this story on /x/ before and there were three other people that had wendigo stories, two of them were in Michigan.

    Ravenous. But if you are meaning a more traditional monster kind of wendigo until dawn is the closest thing. They are making a movie based on the game so hopefully it’s good, not sure which characters they will kill off and in what way though as everyone gets a different version of the game based on their choices.

      The "Wendigo" spirit in Pet Semetary has literally nothing to do with either the Native American Wendigos nor the pop culture Wendigos.

        I guess this is kind of a spoiler but it's heavily implied throughout the book that the wendigo is the one pulling the strings, subtly influencing everyone in town. It makes the old guy tell the main character about the burial ground, it revives whatever's buried, and when the main guy is on his way to the burial ground to bury his dead son, the wendigo walks across the path right in front of him. It's been a while since I've read it but I'm pretty sure it's made clear that the wendigo sees the main character trying to hide from it but allows him to pass because it wants him to bury his son

      yep, I imagine a lot of potential wendigo focused projects have been shot down over this. There's this game where you make little animals fight and the devs added a bunch of mythical creatures. Your usual twitter tards pitched a fit over the wendigo so they had to change its name to Deer Lord, which is funny but disappointing. Only actual concrete example I can think of but would be surprised if that sort of thing isn't occuring in hollywood writers' rooms.
