BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Before I start, I should say that this the old Ravenous from 1999, and not the one that is on Netflix from last year.
Right, we good we got that covered, let's carry on: "In a remote military outpost in the 19th Century, Captain John Boyd and his regiment embark on a rescue mission which takes a dark turn when they are ambushed by a sadistic cannibal."
I have to say, I wasn't into this straight away and it did take a while to get going, I mean, c'mon, I knew it was about cannibals and that tends to be gory, I was ready! When it did get going, it really wasn't that bad, it has dated though, especially the blood. Bloody hell, (see what I did there?!), the blood was bad in this, it was light red and very runny, even the FX blood I use is better than it, and I have to sometimes buy the cheap stuff... Disclaimer though, I hate saying things have dated as at the time, it probably looked great, and I am sure this one did too. Great cast in Ravenous though, an insanely good cast, it's mainly Guy Pearce against Robert Carlyle, and that is something to enjoy. Something to feast the eyes on. It's also fun to see how people have aged in this film... That's like a hobby of mine!
I was mellow with this film, I didn't hate it, but I probably wouldn't watch it again in a flash. As I mentioned, great cast, and the concept is good. There is also some twists that come out of nowhere and they are lovely jubbly.
If I had to watch a film about cannibals, it probably wouldn't be this one, maybe Hills Have Eyes instead... But this cast killed it, so much damn flowing hair going on - like one of those 80s hair bands I love.
Overall, Ravenous wasn't great but wasn't awful - it was a nice movie to pass the time with. It was also pretty funny in places, and that is also nice too. Cannibals and comedy, Can Com, n'awwww.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
