5.0 out of 5 stars The most under-rated black comedy with a sinister streak, 7 Sept. 2000
This review is from: Ravenous [VHS] [1999] (VHS Tape)
How this film can have escaped the attention of the cinema-going masses is surely beyond comprehension for all those who have seen this distinctly original film. Unlike other cannibal based films of recent years the director has brought some neat humour to this very dark subject- for example deciding upon the ingredients for the stew of David Arquette. The plot focuses on cowardly war hero Guy Pearce who is sent to a remote fort in mid 19th century America. Within days of his arrival at the lonely fort Robert Carlyle arrives (once again proving how good he can be at playing a psychopath...) and the body count quickly grows. With brilliant cameo performances from Jeffrey Jones and David Arquette(who can show the makers of 'Scream' how horror films should be done) this film really deserved better recognition, as did the excellent soundtrack composed by Damon Albarn adding to the quirky and chilling atmosphere the film creates.
