Wow wow wowiee. This movie is GREAT!

I’m not a huge fan of westerns but I do enjoy a good period piece and I love interesting dialogue between characters that rambles on and has nothing to do with the overall plot. It may sound like I’m being sarcastic but I’m actually not! The plot is fairly simple, it’s sort of an updated version of The Searchers. The acting is superb and all the characters, no matter how short the screen time, are well developed and multi-dimensional. The horror doesn’t really kick in here until the last act but when it does, hoo boy. Bone Tomahawkhas one of the most disgusting and shocking death scenes I have EVER seen. Plus, Kurt Russell is in it!
