Ravenous


Set in America, 1812. A soldier who survived by playing dead, is shipped off to a small fort in the wilds of Colorado. While he was playing dead, he got some human blood in his mouth. This caused some strange desires in him. Out in the west, they have to investigate a case of cannibalism among a party of settlers who got lost. From then on, things get pretty gory.

Visitor Comments

Ian Douglas: Don't eat steak or stew before this movie. Or afterwards. It drifts into black comedy for a while near the end, I don't know if this is intentional or not. I found it rather distasteful.

Guinevere Vos: 'Weird' film here. The blood and flesh thing gets very gory. Lacked something - though Jones and especially Carlyle makes it worth a peek.

Tracy Vixin: I loved it!

Tony Belsan: I loved it! It was a comedy as far as I was concerned. Dark as it may be, it still had enough hidden comedy to keep the movie not only funny, but also interesting.
