What’s On NOW?!: “RAVENOUS” (1999)

This Flm…

RAVENOUS

…Was The Barer Of TWO Distinct Taglines That Both Together Entirely Sum-Up This Little 1999 Gem Of A Horror/Suspense/Thriller Flick.

1ST: "YOU ARE WHO YOU EAT"

…and…

2ND: "SURVIVAL IS THE ONLY OPTION"

πŸ˜€

Starring…

GUY PEARCE

&

ROBERT CARLYLE

&

JEFFREY JONES

&

DAVID ARQUETTE

…This Film Follows The Exploits Of The Inhabitants Of An Isolated Military Outpost In The California Wilderness.

Things Are Simple Here At Fort Spencer.

Quiet.

COLD.

That Is Until A Stranger Arrives With An Almost Unbelievable Story About His Wagon-Train Being Lost In The Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Eventually, He’ll Tell Of The Unspeakable…

…That The Members Of His Wagon-Train-Party Had To Turn To Cannibalism Just To Survive The Harsh Winter.

Once The Men Of Fort Spencer Head Outward Into The Wild To Try Finding This Ill-Fated Group Of Weary Travelers…

…It Becomes Very Apparent That They’ve Bitten-Off More Than They Can Chew.

(pun VERY MUCH intended, my peeps)

Men Start Dying Off Left And Right, And It Quickly Becomes A Game Of Pure Survival!

πŸ˜€

Now You Know Me, My Peeps.

You Know I Simply Cannot Stand Spoilers.

So I’m Not Going To Spoil This One For You.

HOWEVER…

…Since It Is The Witching Season, With Halloween Just Weeks Away…

…I’m Quietly Letting Y’all Know…

RAVENOUS

…Is Simply A Film That Got A Bum-Rep When It Premiered In 1999.

It Cost Just Over $12Million To Make…

…Yet Barely Made More Than $2Million At The Box-Office.

In Other Words…

…It Was A HUGE Flop.

And That Makes Me Sad, Yo.

It’s Actually Quite A Fun Little Horror Flick.

Is It The Best Flick Ever?

No.

Is It The Best Flick To Come-Out In 1999?

No.

Is It A Flick Totally Worthy Of Your Viewing?

Yes.

If You’re Looking For Something Fun…

…Something That’s Supposed To Be A Classic Horror Flick But Really Ends-Up Feeling More Like A Dark Comedy…

…Then You Seriously Could Do A Lot Worse Than…

RAVENOUS

…Fo SHO Fo SHO, My Peeps!!!

πŸ˜€

So Why Not Give It A Go, Yo?!

The Only Thing You’re Really Giving-Up Is A Little Less Than 2-Hours Of Your Life.

Who Knows

You Might Just Like It!

I Sure Did.

And I Hope You Do, Also.

  1. I love this movie. Was one of the 3 people in the world who saw it in the theater. lol I will be reviewing this a little later this month. It is in my stack of Halloween Horror Celebration movies.

  2. I liked this one, too, although I don’t remember much about it. It’s disappointing when a good movie (or book or album for that matter) flops. I remember that happening (about the same time) with the movie “Dark City,” which is one I saw in the theater. Me & Roger Ebert were about the only people in America who liked it, although it’s gained over time.

    And on the “Soylent Green is people!” tip, have you seen “Cannibal: The Musical?”
