It is set during the time of westward expansion in the youthful United States, which is significant for discovering what the movie is all about. This movie wouldn't make sense in 20th century Manhattan, or in 1930s Chicago. It is set during a time when european settlers still had a long way to go towards 'conquering' most of North America.
Without giving too much away of the bizarre and twisted plot, the movie explores not only cannibalism, but cannibalism as a means of regaining life, energy, or power. You eat another, you take the life energy of that person. This notion of cannabalism (which is more along the lines of mythology than of a slasher movie) allows the movie to be completely unpredictable, disturbing and poignant all at once. At the end of the movie, one realizes that it would've been almost impossible to have guessed what was going to happen at each plot turn. If you enjoy bizarre, almost surreal surprises, this movie is packed with them.
The crucial moment in the film is towards the end when Robert Carlyle's character is rhapsodizing about "manifest destiny." Here it is revealed that what's behind the ravenous hunger depicted in the film is a statement about how the west was won, and perhaps still being won. There's a lot in this film to chew on (it's impossible to avoid stupid puns when writing about movies in which people are eaten, sorry), and "Ravenous" does not belong in the same category as B-slashers or gore or shock flicks.Read more ›
A film this good cannot remain hidden forever. Although I personally want Ravenous to remain in it's obscurity. I know it can't.
I want to selfishly be the one recommending this movie to others.
I went to this film hoping above hope that it would be just good enough so I wouldn't have to walk out on it.
I spent the next ninety-minutes with a big stupid grin on my face. Ravenous rocked! And continues to rock every time I break it out of the DvD cabinet for another spin.
The soundtrack is the film's real star. Like no other I have heard before or since it will always be a close personal favorite.
The story itself has many, many turns. (And not in a Witless-Hollywood-Wild Things-way either.)
Things change. Characters develop. And people get eaten.
I so do love this movie.
(I should mention that I am neither a gore movie fanatic, nor an admirer of the "B" movie genre.)
