A Belgian boy scout with a small stature but big imagination starts seeing things in the dark undergrowth when out in the woods with his peers in Cub (Welp), the horror-tinged feature debut of Flemish director Jonas Govaerts. This unquestionably good-looking film, shot by world-class cinematographer Nicolas Karakatsanis (The Drop, Bullhead), plays like a Low Countries-variation on the classy Spanish-language work of Guillermo Del Toro.
