Editorial Reviews

When Dr. Zack Straker, a field research scientist, unearths the skinned bodies of three missing prospectors, Zack discovers that he and his team are being hunted by millions of creatures that have united into one unstoppable killing machine. As darkness descends, the ground they stand on becomes a living carpet capable of devouring their flesh with every step. Hell has been unleashed. With no clues to investigate the massacre, Alex must find a way to stop them before it's too late.

Customer Reviews

THE GOOD: Great creepy atmosphere and tone, good acting, good music, and the premise works very well.
ACEMAN1
The problem with this mission concerns a group of diamond hunters who disappear in the desert after discovering some strange cone shaped structure in the sand.
Jeffrey Leach
Though not a great film, this is certainly a good film, and is very much worth watching if you can appreciate decent horror movies.

I've seen plenty of movies like this one. It has a neat story line in it, but for the obvious reasons that hinder B-movies, it falls short of its potential. "The Bone Snatcher" starts off well enough, with three miners being attacked and stripped of their flesh by some "thing." A group seeks out the three missing individuals and come upon two of their skeletal remains. The third member of the party is accused of murder by one of the search party members. Tracking his footprints, they find his remains as well. They decide to hunt down the real murderer, which leads to a classic B-movie scenario of the team members being picked off one-by-one as the group slowly comes to realize what they are chasing. Though this is considered a horror film, there isn't much to horrify you in this picture.

The actual "Bone Snatcher" creature looks pretty good considering there probably wasn't much of a budget for the flick. Most of the acting is done in a very stiff fashion, though a couple of the characters, especially Magda, do manage to connect with the audience. Scott Bairstow is mediocre, especially considering that he is the "star" of the show. His acting isn't very convincing to me. In fact, he looks like he doesn't even want to be there. Rachel Shelley is a beautiful lady, and I hope that her career moves beyond this type of "B" fare. Her character is pretty interesting, but it's pulled off in a confused sort of way. The rest of the cast is cluttered with stock "B" characters placed on the screen for the sole purpose of being the next victim.

The story moves along at a snails pace, and the action is thin and spread far apart. The best scene involves the "snatcher" and a team member in a sleeping bag. The CGI is along the same lines as those in "The Mummy Returns.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. My expectation for watching this was to suffer through bad acting and bad storyline just to get to "the monster". By setting the story in the desert, the production value was spent on the CGI monster and better actors than I thought would appear in a movie like this. To be sure, this is a "B movie", but it performs as well as some of hollywood's mainstream offerings. The cast are all Australian/British and unlike Mad Max or Crocodile Dundee do not have super "over-the-top" personalities. The other movies tend to make you focus on the accents and mannerisms in an attempt to add some value to their storyline. The plot is pretty straightforward: Specualtors in the desert uncover something nasty and get killed. Some reseachers happen upon them and then the fun begins... There are only one or two "cliche" moments in this movie, (the awkward boy-girl kiss) & ("i can't kill the monster, I'm a scientist and I must STUDY it" *hoofa*) which is why I have to ding it a star, otherwise I'd have given this movie 4 stars, by simply over-achieving on a low budget. I recommend it for renting or if you have 5 bucks burning a hole in your pocket at the DVD discount rack.

**spoilers**

OK, so the serious horror/sci-fi buff will recognise numerous hat-tips or rip-offs during the Bone Snatcher (Them, Alien, The Thing, Blair Witch, Forbidden Planet, Tremors and many more spring to mind), but it still pulls the right strings and certainly is a well-made, entertaining and memorable movie.

A sandy desolation is not an overused scenario for this genre and I found it made for a delightfully evocative and creepy backdrop to this hefty dollop of grand guignol gore.

The entity, being constructed from human remains is cadaverously grotesque when it finally makes an appearance, and its method of infecting the humans (especially the unfortunate Titus and the poor guy in the sleeping bag) is suitably nasty.

The pace of the move is spot on; an opening shock gives way to a measured section devoted to scene-setting and characterisation, before the real gore-fest begins.

Reasonable acting (although some of the testosterone-fuelled posturing came over as a bit OTT) and the very non-Hollywood accents made for a refreshing change too!

Not bad at all!

Dr. Zack Straker (Scott Bairstow, "Party of Five") shows up from Canada to do some research at a mining camp in South Africa, but that becomes pretty irrelevant when a group of geologists searching for a diamond mine in the desert of Nambia disappear. So Straker heads out to do search and rescue with the rest of the film's potential victims, Karl (Warrick Grier), Mikki (Rachel Shelley), Titus (Patrick Shai), Kurt (Andre Weidermen), and Magda (Adrienne Pearce). They find the corpses of the three missing men and are stunned to discover the bodies have been reduced to virtual skeletons in just six hours. Since we caught the title of the movie, we know that the culprit is "The Bone Snatcher." Of course, this would make more sense if the creature took the bones and left the flesh, but do you want to sit through a film called "The Flesh Snatcher"?

Actually, the South African title for this film, which also had backing from the UK and Canada, was "Sandmother," which actually fits the plot better than "The Bone Snatcher." I did not know that diamond mines were found in the desert, but the Nambia Desert is the home of some infamous diamond mines discovered in 1908. But the titular creature of this 2003 is found beneath the beneath the sands and not in mine caves, although is she were expecting the relationship between the monster here and the sand to be similar to that between the shark and the water in "Jaws," you will be sadly mistaken. This is one of those horror movies where the mysterious monster shows up, people die, and the star of the movie explains the unexplainable before they kill the monster and he kisses the girl right before the fadeout.
