Bone Tomahawk (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Whether a comment on the paranoia of

foreign invasion or an exercise in genre conventions, S. Craig Zahler's debut, Bone Tomahawk (2015) more than earned

its immediate cult status on its release.

Equally revelled in as much as it was reviled for its gruesome and unflinching

imagery, the film delivers the infamy of a video nasty shackled to the traditions of

classic cinema with obvious nods to, on the one hand, John Ford's The Searchers and, on the other, Ruggero

Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust. The

film's savage eye is often elevated by its tenderness and sincere approach to

character delivered by performances of the highest


In its presentation of the western frontier the film is a

physical ordeal - while one character limps on another is there to remind you

of what awaits them at the end of their journey. This Devil's Advocate sets out

on a similar journey to study Zahler's hybrid approach by exploring the balance

of arthouse, classical and exploitation cinema; the history of violence

(onscreen and off) as well as the wider historical and cultural significances such

as modern myth and how the film reflects humanity and the current political climate.
