Are you excited about the Halloween films coming this October? Then you’ll be thrilled with the stop-motion, Wendell and Wild from the delightfully wicked minds of Henry Selick and Jordan Peele!

Netflix’s Wendell and Wild stars Jordan Peele as Wild and Michael Key as Wendell, two mischievous demon brothers forced to fight with their arch nemesis with the help of their sister, Helley. Who just happens to be a nun and an expert at expelling demons. Helley played by the talented Angela Bassett is a demon-slaying nun, so you know it’s about to go down when the fighing starts.

Even with a PG 13 rating, this horror comedy will surely deliver the fright you’re looking for this month. Wendell and Wild is a stop motion by Henry Selick that will raise the hairs on the back of your head. Selick is responsible for other horror animation hits like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline, so there is no doubt this will be another classic for this generation.

Wendell and Wild movie synopsis

From the delightfully wicked minds of Henry Selick and producer Jordan Peele, comes Wendell & Wild, an animated tale about scheming demon brothers Wendell (Keegan-Michael Key) and Wild (Peele) – who enlist the aid of Kat Elliot – a tough teen with a load of guilt – to summon them to the Land of the Living. But what Kat demands in return leads to a brilliantly bizarre and comedic adventure like no other, an animated fantasy that defies the law of life and death, all told through the handmade artistry of stop motion.


This Netflix animation is adapted from Peele’s screenplay based on an unpublished book by Clay McLeod and Henry Selick. Jordan Peele took to Twitter and posted the latest trailer with a devil emoji! Words weren’t necessary because the new trailer speaks for itself. This film is going to be a masterpiece.

For long-time Key and Peele fans, you already have an idea of what to expect from the mind that created movies like Get Out (2018) and Nope (2022) you have an idea of what to expect from these great minds.

If 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverserse of Madness showed us anything, it’s that everyone is craving something edgier and darker. And that’s what Wendell and Wild, with a run time of 1h 45 minutes, aims to deliver according to that trailer.

Another Halloween family film you can look forward to in 2022 is The Curse of Bridge Hollow!

Netflix’s Wendell & Wild movie premieres in select theatres on October 21 and premieres on Netflix on October 28.
