The Bone Eater is a fun Horror/Western with an awesome monster, (an even more awesome ghost horse) and a ecologically based plot.

When developers try to build on sacred Native American land, they awaken the Bone Eater, a terrible monster from the tribes past. The monster is pretty cool for being obviously CGI. It's made up of all bones, and looks like something from the old cartoon Skeleton Warriors. It can dissolve people by spitting acid on them or just by touching them. Later, it even gets a ghost horse to ride, which is one of the best parts of the movie. The monster (and the catchy western movie music that follows him everywhere) is the reason to watch this movie.

A reason to not watch this movie is the plot is a little trite. After the monster starts killing people, the tribe and the local law band together to find a sacred axe and destroy it. The sheriff must re-embrace his Native American heritage and reconcile with his estranged teenage daughter. So don't watch this expecting to be dazzled by the writing.

However, if you're looking to have some fun with a brainless movie, and you like great monsters, Skeleton Warriors, or cheesy horror westerns, this would make a great choice for you.

I actually enjoyed the movie. Not nearly as bad as most of the made for SCFI Channel movies. Kind of a silly western meets bad horror.

The Bone Eater (Jim Wynorski, 2007)

As I've mentioned a few times, I watch a lot of Sci-Fi Channel Original Movies looking for the next Cube. I've seen some really, really dumb movies while doing this. But I have to say that The Bone Eater tops the list. This is easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen. There were a whole lot of folks in here who really, really needed the money.

The painfully thin plot: a group of construction workers digs up a creature made of bad CGI that can turn people into dust. The local sheriff (Bruce Boxleitner) has to find a way to stop it, after he finds a way to believe in it. There's a bunch of subplots, as well, none of which go anywhere, so you can safely ignore them.

It's far more amusing to find the uncredited former stars in this flick than it is to pay attention to what's going on anyway (Walter Koenig, Gil Gerard, William Katt, and Michael Horse are all credited; a number of others, with Veronica Hamel being the most recognizable, show up in cameos). That said, no one is doing their careers any good by being in this movie, which ranges from stupid to blatantly offensive (if you can think of a Native American stereotype, it pops up somewhere in this flick). The acting is bargain-basement, even from such previous mainstays as Horse. I know I should have turned it off halfway through, once I realized it wasn't going to get any better, but I had to keep watching to see how much worse it could possibly get. I was not disappointed; every time you think the movie's hit a new low, it drops another notch or two. Thoroughly useless; avoid it like the plague. Half a star, because I did, in fact, sit through the whole thing.

I rather liked this bony monster; it was interesting. I thought it was a unique concept well designed. I even loved his bony horse and the ash cloud they galloped in. But is this a horror flick rife with social commentary? I don't know. The story involves a corrupt land developer who wantonly desecrates an ancestral burial ground, reburying artifacts and hiding whatever skeletal remains his workmen find. Working late one night, three of his men uncover the unearthly remains of the Bone Eater. Gasp. All three men are promptly `dusted' into smithereens. Well, they asked for it. (So many people in this movie disappeared into clouds of dust that it was impossible for the local constabulary to keep up with the reports of who was missing. A lot of the body count went unnoticed. How sad, not to have anyone report you missing.)

There is no way you can take this movie seriously. It's a fun wacky idea and better still, features some old TV favorites in small roles: William Katt as Doctor Boombas, Walter Koenig as Coogan, Veronica Hamel as Commissioner Hayes, Gil Gerard as Big Jim Burns (who would name their kid Big, seriously). In the starring role as Sheriff Steve Evans, there is the always dependable Bruce Boxleitner. His only misfortune is having to deal with a part time snotty daughter home for the summer (spare me the typical angry teenager). And if one villain is good, two is even better (Adoni Maropis as the EVIL Johnny Black Hawk. He has a mighty big knife that he becomes very attach to).

Love this movie; it's dopey, yes, but a great pleasure to behold. Every so often, I find myself pulling it out of the collection to watch; I'm glad I bought it (cheap).

I enjoyed this movie and watch it quite frequently since I have this one in my collection. The movie is unrealistic in it's content but still a relaxing and enjoyable movie to watch. About an Indian warlord that is brought back to life after excavators dig up an Indian burial ground and disturb its surrounding. The warlord is basically undefeatable by humans and it takes a special ax and an Indian to bring it down.
