After the Mexican-American war in the mid-1800’s, Captain John Boyd is rattled by his bloody experience. He is sent to a distant but quiet outpost. Here he becomes part of a cannibalistic nightmare after a man, Colquhoun falls on their doorstep with a shocking account of his escape and survival. A rescue party is sent out to ascertain whether anyone else made it out alive – Colquhoun kills all but Boyd, and returns as a high ranking officer, still lusting for human flesh.
What is the best way to deal with a shocking theme like this? Inject dark humour.
An innovative and entertaining angle on the cannibal theme.
