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

Bad, but not bad for a Wynorski film
11 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

BONE EATER isn't too shabby for a Sci-Fi Channel monster movie, although it's still a distinctly average production. The story is based around Native American legend and sees the Bone Eater of the title rising up to wreak havoc after being disturbed by some excavations. This Bone Eater takes the form of a giant skeleton warrior who absorbs the bone dust of his victims, growing with each kill. He also rides a skeletal horse at some points in the production.

It's business as usual, of course, although at least BONE EATER offers a fast pace and some CGI effects which aren't quite as bad as you'd expect from this genre. The bloodless kills are reminiscent of those in Spielberg's WAR OF THE WORLDS remake and achieved fairly well. This is definitely one of the better Jim Wynorski films I've sat through.

Viewers can play "spot the old timer" with this one, with lots of old and grey faces from yesteryear making appearances. The dull Bruce Boxleitner (TRON) headlines the cast, but there are fun cameos from both Walter Koenig (STAR TREK) and William Katt (CARRIE) playing doctor types. Buck Rogers himself, Gil Gerard, is a human villain of the story.
