3 out of 5. Antonio Bird's RAVENOUS was a surprising treat if you like horror films. This was smart, darkly funny at times with great cast that included GUY PEARCE and ROBERT CARLYLE. I don't watch horror films like I used to but if they were as well done as this I would. The horror in this shifts from situational to one of acceptance by the characters. It's when they cross the line that things really get interesting. If you liked THE PROPOSITION for it's left of center western themes you'll like Ravenous just the same.
