Entertaining and, sometimes, even moving, 10 February 2013
Author: Wuchak from Ohio/PA border

"Bone Eater" (2007) is yet another Syfy Grade B monster movie. All these creature features have the same basic plot: Strange monster appears, people start dying, and the locals have to figure out how to destroy it or, at least, escape it. The only things that change are the creature, the setting and the characters.

"Gargoyles" from 1972 is one of the greatest examples of these types of low-budget monster flicks and the genre is still going strong 40 years later. What is it about these kinds of stories that attract people? Perhaps it's because imagination and legend are about good and evil and the power of selfless courage against impossible odds. In short, there's nothing more heroic than man against monster. (I say "man" in the generic sense, of course, which includes male and female).

"Bone Eater" mixes elements of films like "Gargoyles," "Ghost Rider," "The Prophecy," and -- believe it or not -- "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". It's pretty entertaining throughout and sometimes surprisingly moving. Despite its cartoony trappings, the filmmakers effectively strike a reverential chord with some of the relationships, the Native Americans and the spiritual parts of the music. Speaking of the music, the score is quite notable even though the Western-ized portions rip-off Ennio Morricone's classic score for "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly".

The main characters are distinguished and impressive while the protagonists are very likable. For instance, you have the stalwart sheriff, his loyal men and beautiful daughter, her bad boy boyfriend, the crew-supervisor dad, his son, the wise Native chief, his winsome granddaughter and the angry brave, Black Hawk. You also have the evil entrepreneur and his lackeys.

As far as women go, Clara Bryant is stunning as the Sheriff's blossoming daughter, to say the least, and Jennifer Lee Wiggins shines as Stormcloud's ultra-charming granddaughter, Kaya.

The writers throw in some potent insights and moral conflicts here and there. For instance, the crew-supervisor's son says it's wrong for them to hide archaeological artifacts; his father counters that it's easy to be idealistic when you're young but, when you're older, your paycheck and security come first.

The film runs 90 minutes and was shot in Santa Clarita and Vasquez Rocks, California.

FINAL WORD: Yes, "Bone Eater" is a juvenile monster movie, but it's pretty entertaining; and many aspects of it are impressive and sometimes moving. There are even some gems to mine. So if you have a taste for Grade B creature features like 1972's "Gargoyles" you'll probably appreciate it. If, on the other hand, you can't handle the cartoony storytelling and TV-budget effects of these types of flicks, stay away.
