Ravenous (1999) A soldier in the Mexican-American war in 1847 is promoted to captain for his perceived bravery but soon transferred to a remote outpost in the Sierra Nevadas when the cowardly truth becomes evident. The outpost's keepers seem on the brink of madness in their own ways, and what passes for their tranquil is shattered by the intrusion of the lone survivor of an ill-fated expedition that ended in murder and cannibalism.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Colonel Hart: It's lonely being a cannibal. Tough making friends.
  • Colonel Hart: A little too much bourbon in his bourbon.
  • Colhoun: I said no food. I didn't say there was nothing to eat.
  • Colonel Hart: What did you get the medal for? Captain John Boyd: Cowardice.
  • [Looking through a spyglass as three people approach the fort] Colhoun: Breakfast... lunch... and reinforcements.
Movie Trivia:
  • Director Milcho Manchevski was replaced two weeks into production.
  • 'Milton Quiltman Sahme''s chant was recorded by Damon Albarn in Quiltman's living room on the reservation. Albarn was referred to Quiltman by Joseph Runningfox.
  • The tape loop used during Colqhoun's story is an archival track from the 1920s.
  • The part of Martha was originally written as George's brother, rather than his sister.
  • The end fight was made up by actors Guy Pearce and Robert Carlyle when the original scripted ending (which was to take place on the roof of the cabins at night while they were burning) was scrapped in favor of them just beating the hell out of each other. During this, the production ran out of fake blood.
