Poster of the Week: Bone Tomahawk

Written by Griffintainment X

Bone Tomahawk is a western horror about a group of small towners who must face off against a cannibalistic tribe that kidnaps the town deputy and doctor's assistant.

As far as the film goes, it's interesting. It's certainly the most gory, gritty representation of the genre since The Propostion. It's overly cheesy though and is painful to watch such a talented cast try to make the best of the such silly dialogue. But, that's not why we're here today, we're here to admire this gorgeous poster.

This is probably one of the better movie posters I've seen this year. I love how it looks like a fine bristled brush painting, I love how it incorporates elements of the Japanese samurai film into its look. And I especially love Lili Simmons' face imbedded in the blood red sun.

I don't know if I like the movie enough to buy a copy and watch it multiple times, but I sure as hell like this poster enough to buy a copy and admire it up on my wall multiple times.
