If The Blair Witch Project keeps its supernatural menace off camera, You Won’t Be Alone lets it take us by the clawed, gnarled hand. Opening in 19th-century Macedonia, where a sheltered teenage girl is transformed into a shape-shifting “wolf-eatress” by an ancient witch and left to find her own way in the world, writer-director Stolevski’s dark fantasy is a meditation on decency and corruption, as the girl once known as Nevena (played by a succession of actors including Sara Klimoska, Noomi Rapace, and Alice Englert) spends decades walking the Earth, doing whatever she must to reclaim the life she was denied. As we see various incarnations of Nevena re-encounter the same cruelty and alienation over and over again, You Won’t Be Alone becomes a meditation on folk horror, showing us how myths are created and how an innocent might choose to become a monster.
