Storyline

In Sweet Water, the ambitious entrepreneur Dick Krantz is constructing a resort in the middle of the desert under the protest of the Katonahs. When three workers find some Indian relics and bones in a ditch in the site, they accidentally release the giant skeleton like creature known as Bone Eater and their bones are devoured by the monster. The half-breed Sheriff Steve Evans a.k.a. Running Wolf is in charge of the investigation of the disappearance of the workers, being pressed by Krantz to arrest the protesters. But the Bone Eater attacks and kills other locals, while Chief Storm Cloud seeks an ancient Tomahawk capable of destroying the evil creature. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Interesting cast
27 November 2010 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

What an interesting cast of old television actors. Michael Horse, Gil Gerard, Bruce Boxleitner, Veronica Hamill, William Katt, and Scott Norris (son of Chuck Norris). I did not recognize most of them until I checked IMDb. Time and age has changed them a lot.

Aside from the interesting cast, this film is a typically awful sci-fi made-for-TV movie. The special effects are really sad to watch. The creature looks like it is one of those dinosaur skeleton models. The fact is that it does not eat any bones, it just dissolves people in a cloud of cgi dust. There is no gore, and certainly nobody gets scared, not even the actors who are being attacked. This is a movie in which they could have made a live action creature by putting someone into a skeleton suit, and it would have looked better and it would have been more effective.

Another problem with the movie is that the bone eater critter often attacks in full daylight, and that just makes the bad cgi even more blatantly obvious. It is also a lot less scary when a creature is attacking people in broad daylight on a sunny hillside.

It is too bad that this interesting cast of veteran actors was wasted on this horrible movie. In the 1950s, this type of low budget movie would have relied on the cast reaction shots, creepy lighting, and suspense for the scares.It could have been a lot better.
