By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This is a terrifically well-made gory horror movie with splashes of humor.Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty) stars as a mysterious man who turns up at aCalifornia military outpost, circa 1850, and turns out to be a cannibal. GuyPearce (L.A. Confidential), David Arquette (Scream), Jeffrey Jones(Amadeus), and Jeremy Davies (Saving Private Ryan) also star as Americansoldiers. Director Antonia Bird (Priest, Mad Love) keeps everything balanced,and an amazing score by Michael Nyman (The Piano, Gattaca) -- reminiscent of1970's Italian horror movies -- keeps us on our toes. This is not for the faint ofheart; it may convert you into a vegetarian.
