"Bone Tomahawk's" gruesome split
One thing we appreciated about S. Craig Zahler's bleak, underseen Western "Bone Tomahawk" is the matter-of-fact way it deals with violence. Zahler wants us to be horrified, not titillated, by the often-brutal displays of carnage on screen. This includes a truly gut-churning third-act moment that sees a character being scalped and then split in half -- alive -- by a group of cannibalistic Native Americans.
