A mysterious outsider's quiet life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving himself an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family.
After an outlaw unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope, the monsters kidnap several settlers, including the wife of a local rancher. Despite his injured leg the rancher joins a small rescue party with the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger. What follows is a journey into hell on earth as the posse comes to realize it is up against a foe whose savagery knows no bounds. The film takes place at the turn of the century around the border of what is now Texas and New Mexico.Written by
At Fantastic Fest, S. Craig Zahler said that he wanted much of the film's mysticism to remain ambiguous and debatable. See more »
Nearing end of the movie when the captor attempts to shoot Hunt with Brooder's rifle, you can hear the hammer drop each time he pulls the trigger. This is not possible with a lever action rifle as the hammer is cocked by working the lever and chambering a round (as he later found out). Otherwise nothing would happen when trigger is pulled.

Western meets Cannibal, a brilliant classic in modern times
In 2015 where we are used to seeing none stop CGI, thin plot, endless action trash...here we have the opposite, a real movie gem. It's a classically crafted western that ended up as a brutal cannibal masterpiece.
At first it does make the audience feel that theirs not much happening compared to general modern cinema but what we do have is quality acting, cinematography and script building up to the shocking and unpredictable end
I can't recommend this enough, unlike most films of today it's not made for profit it's made for quality film making, something which I fear today is few and far between
Go watch it
