Cowboys and Indians…..oh and Monsters!
Basically a Horror Western with heavy overtones of racial morality.
But is it worth watching? Well, in my opinion yes. It has suspense, horror, action and of course – cowboys and Indian’s, what more do you want? Monsters? Well it’s got them too. And yes, it really is as silly as it sounds. But overall, it’s a good flick to rent.
Nothing in this film is top drawer, but it’s not far off. The characters are a little over the top with stereotypes, eg. Henry Victor – the Indian hating military commander (quite comical at times, whether this was intentional I don’t know), the Irish settler, the ‘token’ black guy. The overtones of racial morality are present throughout, almost as though this is supposed to be a tale about ‘loving thy neighbour’. I can understand why they did this, It’s set in the late 1800’s and the Indians were the bogeymen at the time, but it’s a bit overdone IMO. Anyway, it’s not about ‘loving thy neighbour’ it’s about monsters…keeping it real.
Overall, Cowboys, Indians and Monsters (just missing the voluptuous blond I guess). Grab a few beers and rent this film.
Mildly inventive monster flick, gets progressively boring
As far as entries in the b-movie industry of creature features go, The Burrowers is surprisingly interesting if only because it chooses the oddest of scenarios.
The script, though far from great, feels like something more inventive and legitimate than just a handful of words on a page, with the same recycled phrases typical of the genre. (ex. how do we kill it, we gotta get moving) The special effects convince, but more importantly, they re not needed too much because the threat is kept in the shadows out of sight, as all good horror films should do.
So what then is wrong with the film? It’s just a case of running out of steam. Around the 2/3 mark, the film starts to degrade just in time for the climax. The first hour functions as a decent build up, as we get closer and closer to the mystery of what our characters are looking for. Therein lies the problem. Eventually you realize that The Burrowers has been slow and devoid of story. By the time it unleashes its gooey climax, you may well have lost interest. Furthermore you may not even care that the ending is a cheap shot, because even though you started with a fair investment in the story, by the end you just feel like an audience member sitting in the dark waiting to go.
