Spooky season is upon us, which means that there is no better time to huddle down and watch a scary movie.
However, viewers who have just discovered one 2015 flick have been left shaken after watching it. The movie is so scary some are even calling it the most disturbing that they have ever seen!
Bone Tomahawk is a Western horror movie written and directed by S. Craig Zahler, which revolves around a small-town sheriff who leads a group to go and save 3 townspeople. They get abducted by a Native American clan called the Troglodytes who are shunned by other native tribes because of their cannibalism.
The film has an all-star cast, with The Hateful Eight actor Kurt Russell playing the sheriff. Other cast members include Lost‘s Matthew Fox, Insidious star Patrick Wilson and Hollywood legend Richard Jenkins.
The film was met with a positive reception from both critics and regular viewers, but they all share the same consensus that the flick does not make for an easy watch.
“Boasting some brutally insane practical effects, horrifying villains and a really cute old man, Bone Tomahawk is an unlikely paragon of genre-blending-gone-right,” Jordan Brookes of Vague Visages wrote in their review of the flick.
“Just go into it expecting the unexpected because that is exactly what you are going to get,” reviewer Keith Garlington said.
Matthew Bond of the Mail on Sunday put: “Bone Tomahawk begins and ends with moments of such sickening violence it’s difficult to remember that what comes in between is actually rather good, if in a clearly Tarantino-inspired way.”
One viewer described it on X, formerly Twitter, as “purposefully paced, richly scripted,” adding: “The film is slow burn that explodes in the third act. The eclectic cast is also worthy. Zahled’s infusion of horror and absurdist humor is brought to the fore at the most unexpected juncture!!”
While a second person says: “The ending will leave your jaw on the floor. Very strong gore scenes. It’s worth it. Excellent performance by Kurt Russell as Sheriff.”
A third put: “Bone Tomahawk was truly disturbing. I don’t think I could stand to watch it a second time.”
