The Revenant Summary
In the 1820s, a frontiersman, Hugh Glass, sets out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.
Ultra-gory horror comedy squanders its intriguing premise of crime-stopping vigilante zombies with its uneven execution.
It's not hard to imagine this becoming a cult favorite.
About 30 minutes too long and somewhat clumsily executed, this zombie's-eye-view story still manages to evoke the comic and splattery spirit of the best '80s cult horror flicks.
This small sleeper delivers a surprising number of pleasingly putrid punch lines.
Its anti-war sentiments are trafficked in like a subterfuge that blows up with unexpected force.
