Bone Tomahawk 2015 american western horror about Four men set out in the Wild West to rescue a group of captives from cannibalistic cave dwellers

What can we say about the Bone Tomahawk official movie trailer? Well, it is really nothing new as there have been past horror in a western settings that has a similar vibe to it; features a group of cowboys (and at times Indians) on a quest to find somone or discover something then eventually gets picked off by the film's featured monster. I don't know if it was intentional or an accident but there have been information (in the Joblo Youtube video trailer source) that the big bad in Bone Tomahawk are "cannibalistic cave dwellers", well guess that somehow took out the mystery behind what the trailers alludes to.

Well the film's biggest strength is with its lead, mainly Kurt Russell. This ensure that the film has at least decent performance from the all star male lead. Could very well work but it is usually the women being included in the slaughter or a film having the "last girl" which makes most horror films endearing. We'll see if Bone Tomahawk can pull successful scares. There aren't also that many Western horror films and this is a welcome addition. Did the trailer tells so much about the movie? Well, probably; but at least it didn't show what the film's monster (cannibalistic cave dwellers) looks like.
