In "Ravenous", the movie, the scene is 1847 in the United States during the time of the Mexican-American War when Capt. John Boyd is banished to a desolate military outpost in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. It's from the stranger Colqhoun that he learns the tale of the old Indian myth called Weendigo which states that a man who eats the flesh of another steals that person's strength, spirit and very essence. To eat or to be eaten. 

Cannibalistic gore. This film is definitely not for the younger ones. 

You are who you eat. 
Drama thriller.

Fan Comments 
27 Mar - I was very positively surprised with Ravenous, the film really caught me with its' insane cold mude and at the same time the sent of dark humor. Good characters, strange story, catching and very well supported by the great soundtrack by Michael Nymann + Damon Albarn. Thumbs up! -- fan from Canada

26 Mar - Today is the second time I've seen Ravenous since it came out. This movie is absolutely incredible for those who can appreciate it. While it won't be winning any awards any time soon, I think it's great that a movie like this can actually be made, for there are those out there who will be utterly mesmerized by it. And, my god, villians don't come any more wonderfuly demented than Robert Carlyle, what a brilliant performance. 

23 Mar - Fascinating film. Dark and murky and hilarious. A real laugh-out-loud for those who adore dark comedy. The inimitable Robert Carlyle is brilliant, as usual, with excellent supporting efforts from all, especially Jeffrey Jones. Not to be missed by the strong of stomach with a penchant for dark comedy! -- Samantha 

23 Mar - I just wanted to say that I think Ravenous is first rate. It is beautifully photographed, wonderfully acted and full of interesting complexity. Robert Carlyle is amazingly good as the cannibalistic Colqhoun/Ives and Jeffrey Jones does a great job with Col. Hart. Definitely don't miss Ravenous.
