1999 Noir Flick: Ravenous

I watched this film 8 years ago. For some reason I had an urge to watch it again. It's not for the faint of heart. Basically, the plot is:

A soldier in the Mexican-American war in 1847 is promoted to captain for his perceived bravery but soon transferred to a remote outpost in the Sierra Nevadas when the cowardly truth becomes evident. The outpost's keepers seem on the brink of madness in their own ways, and what passes for their tranquil is shattered by the intrusion of the lone survivor of an ill-fated expedition that ended in murder and cannibalism.

Video clip here. An awesome film.
