Ravenous (1999)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal

Ravenous (1999) It's almost embarrassing how long it took me to check out "Ravenous". Must've been for the fact that it was a theatrically released horror film from the late '90s - possibly the tamest - even mainstream horror - has been.

A lieutenant in the American-Mexian war of the 1840s is discovered to have abandoned his unit by playing dead on the battle field. He makes up for it by crossing enemy lines. When his initial act of cowardice is discovered he is sent out to a small Fort in the mountains. Before long, a man comes staggering in after having been surviving in the wild for three months. He details his struggle of having to eat his party to live. The seven soldiers then venture out to the spot to locate a potential survivor. Turns out, the weary cannibal among them is not the last-ditch flesh eater he appears...

While I wouldn't say I was absolutely blown away by "Ravenous", I was delightfully engaged by it's outlandish premise involving Wendigo folklore and cannibal recruitment. There's a little touch of black comedy thrown in sparingly, despite the theatrical trailer having misrepresented it as being MUCH quirkier and lighthearted than it actually is which is probably why it's theater run didn't last all that long. The wonderfully politically correct '90s. Clearly, this film couldn't compete with the "Scream" influence that was certainly so fresh in the public's minds. Overall, give "Ravenous" a watch if you like cannibals...
