    Synopsis:
    Fort Spencer, the Sierra Nevada mountains, 1847. A bedraggled stranger (Robert Carlyle) stumbles in, claiming to be Colquoun, a settler who has been trapped in a mountain cave by a snowstorm. He reports that his fellow cave-dwellers have been reduced to cannibalism and that he was lucky to escape with his life. Captain John Boyd (Guy Pearce) and his army colleagues accompany Colquoun back to the cave, only to uncover a far more grisly version of events. Directed by Antonia Bird, with a score by Michael Nyman and Blur`s Damon Albarn.

    Great film! I didn`t expect much but was very suprised at how entertaining this was. As said before, a brilliant mix of black humour, gore and action. Great performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Carlyle.
    It is quite slow at the beginning but builds up nicely and has some great action scenes towards the end.
    The DVD has nice extras especially the deleted scenes. Definitely worth checking out.
