Bone Tomahawk (2015)
Four men set out in the Wild West to rescue a group of captives from cannibalistic cave dwellers.
A gleefully grisly genre gazpacho that matches a rousing sense of Old West derring-do to a comic sensibility as dark as chewing tobacco - and at least as much of an acquired taste.
A surprising level of gravitas marks this picture as one that isn t content with a B-movie base hit.
The characters are thoughtfully embellished, and Zahler s script finds occasional traction with engaging dialogue that includes exploration of the men s contrasting attitudes about marriage.
It s an uneasy mixture of bizarre character development, arty dialogue laced with black humor and gruesome horror flick.
Viewed through the lens of Italian exploitation films, Bone Tomahawk starts to make sense.
