It feels like the cannibal western Bone Tomahawk has been on its way for years, but today we can finally get a proper look at the film thanks to EW.
The trailer teases what looks to be an unsettling and disturbing horror, that twists the western and cannibal genre into what looks to be something really special. The tension mounts and then the horrors begin, and it is easy to see why Bone Tomahawk should be at the top of your must-see list.
It’s good to see Kurt Russell back in such a commanding role, and the rest of the cast is really strong. The story of a rescue mission for a woman abducted by cannibals is guaranteed to give way to some truly nasty stuff, and the well executed trailer shows us just enough to get our excitement levels way up.
Bone Tomahawk is written and directed by S. Craig Zahler, and the impressive cast includes Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins, David Arquette, Lili Simmons and Sid Haig.
After an outlaw unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope, the monsters kidnap several settlers, including the wife of a local rancher. Despite his injured leg the rancher joins a small rescue party with the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger. What follows is a journey into hell on earth as the posse comes to realise it is up against a foe whose savagery knows no bounds. The film takes place in the mid 1800’s around the border of what is now Texas and New Mexico.
