RAVENOUS was released in 1999 to almost no fanfare and pretty much disappeared from movie screens as soon as it had appeared. It boasted a solid B-list cast including Guy Pearce and Robert Carlyle, but for some reason was essentially ignored by horror fans. Then it came on cable and DVD, and soon the cult surrounding RAVENOUS started to build. Eventually I got sucked in myself - and I must admit, I've seen the movie now more than a few times. There's something just irresistable about its corky take on cannibalism in the 1840s (yes, I just wrote that).
