“Ravenous” is a horror film set in the 1840s during the Mexican-American War. The film follows Captain John Boyd, a soldier who is sent to a remote military outpost in the Sierra Nevada mountains. There, he discovers a group of survivors who have turned to cannibalism to survive the harsh winter. As the group's leader, Colonel Hart, begins to exert control over the others, Boyd must confront his own morality and decide whether or not to participate in the group's gruesome practices.


“Ravenous” is a unique and unsettling horror film that blends elements of historical fiction, cannibalism, and the supernatural. Director creates a tense and foreboding atmosphere, using haunting music and stark landscapes to create a sense of dread.

The performances by as Boyd and as the charismatic and sinister Colonel Hart are both strong and memorable. The film's exploration of the morality of cannibalism and survival adds depth to the horror elements, making it more than just a gore-filled shockfest.

While “Ravenous” may not be for everyone, it is a well-crafted and thought-provoking horror film that deserves to be seen by fans of the genre.


“Ravenous” was not a box office success and did not receive any major awards, but it has gained a cult following over the years and is considered by many to be an underrated gem of the horror genre.
