Craig Zahler Distributor: RLJ Entertainment/Image Entertainment Release Date (Blu-ray/DVD): December 29, 2015 Movie Westerns are still being made, but the old cowboys-and-Native Americans subgenre is no longer very active, for what can be hoped are obvious reasons. BONE TOMAHAWK gets around those reasons with one of the great gifts that horror provides – when it’s not acceptable to depict a whole group of human beings as bloodthirsty monsters, use actual bloodthirsty monsters.
