    BONE TOMAHAWK

    Whatever you’re doing right now probably isn’t as important as watching this movie. It is customarily routine for me to keep a watchful eye on interesting films in some of my favorite genres: Horror and Westerns. I think we can all raise a guilty hand to being some form of genre fan boy or girl. Neglecting a shitty flick for a great set or setting- for the flavor of the story alone. But we need those bad movies don’t we? They are just as important as the good ones because, of course, they elevate the great films and show us what ‘good’ is supposed to look like.
