Dakota 1879. A family of farmers disappears from their home and is suspected to be abducted by a tribe of Indians. Fergus Coffey, who was about to engage himself with one of the women that disappeared, gets a couple of his friends together and along with a regiment of soldiers they form a posse that starts the pursuit of the kidnappers. However, when night falls, men start disappearing and it quickly becomes clear to Coffey and his friends that it might not be a hostile Indian tribe they should be fearing…
Sound and Vision:
The image is decent for a low budget movie but certain scenes are a bit on the dark side and also there’s some grain present here and there. The sound does its job nicely with good use of the surrounds for some music and effects.
As a low budget horror movie, The Burrowers starts off pretty good with an original setting and some nice twists that make it enjoyable to watch. Unfortunately, halfway the movie things start to become rather predictable and towards the ending even plain boring. Scenes go on unnecessarily long to prolong the length of the movie, plot twists are quite predictable and the acting goes downhill.
We’ve seen worse (hint: Punisher: War Zone) but that doesn’t make this movie good. Those looking for some low budget horror with an original twist still might like it though.
