With this being a horror-focused blog and all, it’s not very often we get to visit other genres, especially one of the western variety. S. Craig Zahler’s debut, Bone Tomahawk, is in the unique position that blends the genre lines, mixing horror with gun-toting badasses. We have the film’s first one-sheet and it’s absolutely gorgeous, offering a great look at the stellar cast led by the one and only Kurt Russell. I’ve heard from some people who have read the script that this movie is going to be absolutely insane, which is plenty fine with me.
In BONE TOMAHAWK, four men attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization.
Bone Tomahawk follows an outlaw who unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope. When the monsters kidnap several settlers, including a rancher’s wife, a small rescue party consisting of the injured rancher, the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger, journey into hell to try and rescue them. They soon find themselves in dark unknown territories where savage inbreeds armed with the ultimate weapon leave no hope of survival.
Rounding out the cast is Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins, Patrick Wilson, David Arquette, Lili Simmons, Sean Young, Geno Segers, Fred Melamed, James Tolkan, Raw Leiba, Jamie Hector, Jamison Newlander, Zahn McClarnon, David Midthunder, Jay Tavare, Gray Wolf Herrara, Robert Mukes, and Brandon Molale.
