Bone Tomahawk is coming to UK cinemas, with Kurt Russell in the lead role, and it’s the weirdest name for a film I’ve come across in a long time, but it’s about four men, who set out in the Wild West to rescue a group of captives from cannibalistic cave dwellers.
From first-time director, S Craig Zahler, the cast is a lot more well-known and also is comprised of Patrick Wilson, Sean Young, Lili Simmons, Matthew Fox, David Arquette, Kathryn Morris, Michael Paré and Richard Jenkins.
However, it’s been awarded an 18-certificate – quite a rarity these days – for “strong violence” as well as a number of other matters which I’ll hide behind a spoiler heading…
This marks a change from a lot of films which the studios dumb down and censor to get more bums on seats. Two forthcoming examples are The Last Witch Hunter and Goosebumps.
