Ravenous in 35mm!
Antonia Bird / 1999, Czech Republic-UK-USA
101min / 35mm
It's a recipe for nonstop action and excitement when the inhabitants of an isolated military outpost go up against a marauding band of cannibals in a deadly struggle for survival! Ever watchful of the enemies who might literally tear them apart, the uneasy alliance of soldiers must fight brutal elements of the Sierra Nevada wilderness as well as their own murderous instincts to stay alive.
Imagine a film that makes A Modest Proposal-style satire out of Dracula's gothic horror tropes in the spaghetti western milieu of The Great Silence. Its a pitch-black comedy about Manifest Destiny and cannibal frontiersmen. Village Voice (RIP)
clever in the way it avoids most of the cliches of the vampire movie by using cannibalism, and most of the cliches of the cannibal movie by using vampirism. It serves both dishes with new sauces. Roger Ebert
