BONE TOMAHAWK is a horror western film directed and written by S. Craig Zahler, starring Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Lili Simmons, and Richard Jenkins.
In the film, a stranger (David Arquette) rolls into the tiny Western town of Bright Hope, immediately drawing the suspicions of the backup deputy Chicory (Jenkins). He alerts the town’s sheriff, Franklin Hunt (Russell) and in an ensuing scuffle, the stranger is wounded and put in jail. Summoned to tend to the wounded man is the beautiful Samantha O’Dwyer (Simmons), whose successful working-class husband Arthur (Wilson) is laid out at home with a broken leg. Sometime in the night, a local stable boy is torn to pieces, horses are stolen and Samantha and the stranger disappear. The only clue left behind is a rather peculiar looking arrow, a weapon their local Indian expert identifies as belonging to tribe of cannibalistic troglodytes. Having no alternative but to face these cave-dwelling abominations, Sheriff Hunt, Chicory, Arthur O’Dwyer and the dashing, highly educated gentleman John Brooder (Fox) head out on a rescue mission.
