The most disturbing western I have ever seen...

An impressive directorial debut from writer S. Craig Zahler, who also wrote this gruesome, filthy western of how wild the west can really get. More so impressive that the whole film was shot in just 21 days.

An outlaw drifter wanders into the town of Bright Hope unknowingly leading a tribe of savage, inbred, natives better known as Troglodytes which translates as Cave-dweller." During the night, these horrific abominations murder and kidnap some of the town folk, one being the wife of a crippled rancher, who then embarks on a rescue mission with the town sheriff, his old and incapable deputy and an over confident gunslinger.

Kurt Russell heads up the rescue posse as Sheriff Hunt, slipping comfortably into his western boots. Richard Jenkins plays his ageing deputy, Patrick Wilson the limping, desperate rancher and an impressive Matthew Fox who stole the screen, as the charismatic, narcissistic know-it- all who both annoying yet strangely likable, reminding me a little of Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday in Tombstone.

There's an air of mystery for the majority of the film, keeping the audience on tender hooks waiting to see what's in store for the rescue party. Are the kidnapped still alive? Dead? Or worse? While some elements are left to your imagination, you can only think of the worse, but what isn't, is nothing short of disturbing.

The gory violence is shocking to watch, even just hearing the graphic noises is enough. The sound is gruesome, bloody and unsettling. The climatic end was actually painful to watch, scarring the memory making me shudder just at the thought of it. The lack of a score only intensifies the haunting atmosphere.

Something has to be said for the special effects, make-up and the sound engineering that were all completely on point. I've never seen a more gory western, even more so than The Hateful Eight. The makeup and effects throughout are amazing but they really go beyond during the epic climax.

There's been a few disturbing films this year, visually, Neon Demon and imagination wise, Nocturnal Animals springing to mind but this one really made me wrench covering my mouth with both hands. It's like those good horrors you're too scared to watch but find yourself mesmerised to the screen regardless. This is certainly not one for the weak stomached. Kudos to director Zahler for created a stunning western with a difference, becoming borderline horror.

Running Time: 7 The Cast: 9 Performance: 8 Direction: 8 Story: 9 Script: 7 Creativity: 9 Soundtrack: 9 Job Description: 10 The Extra Bonus Points: 10 for the sound and graphic quality.

This is probably the best Western since Unforgiven. *Spoilery*

This movie has flaws, no doubt. But it has a very good true western feel for about 3/4 of the film and then takes a hard left into very scary horror territory. The cast is great! Matthew, Kurt and Patrick look amazing! The stand out for me though is the script. I don't know that it is exactly historically accurate but the cast doesn't sound like they're fresh out of 2015 either. See it if you like westerns and horror. Also see it if you like Westerns but hide your eyes for the last act if you don't like horror.

Apocolypto meets the west

Fresh off the heals of The Hateful Eight, Kurt Russell is right back in the saddle again, and this is exactly where we want him. This pic, I happened to catch the other night, only first learning of it's existence a few weeks before, exceeded my expectations as in the quality of the picture from it's photography to it's great script. With a great cast actors who never drop their guard, the spot on casting was one of the prime things I liked about this refreshing surprise of a western, while being overly entertaining and absorbing in a great and carefully structured and told tale, of a group of townsfolk riders, primarily the law, taking up the quota, minus one for a concerned party (Wilson, who we don't see enough in film) retrieve some townsfolk, which includes Wilson's hot wife, who we saw beautifully bare in a nice fornicating scene earlier in the peace, for which we audience, are truly grateful. They are believed to have been taken by a savage merciless group, of tribal Indian folk, but a shocking spin on this, is that they are cannibalistic sons of bitches. You can easily tell in this film, that a lot of gore was cut, right from the opening neck slitting reel. Russell as the sheriff, is a much more sober, and softer type of character to what he was in Hateful 8, although he displays some small characteristics. Jenkins is absolutely terrific, doing his best work, as Russell's older lawful compadre, but it's Matthew Fox as a slightly sleazy and smug deputy, who once tried to get fresh with Wilson's wife, that steals your interest. Fox's small filmography over thirty years is criminal, if you consider how great an actor, this guy is (this is the same clean cut, moustached chief superviser who bought it in Smokin' Aces) while Wilson as the determined husband, determined to get the love of his life back, again never drops guard. Bone Tomahawk is a fresh and highly entertaining western, with some pretty heavy shock violence, mostly near the end, with solid acting to boot, but probably the finale music score could of been a little better applied. Other than that, steer up for another high riding adventure, with a much more sympathetic and civilized posse, other than those cold 8.
