BBFC Gives BT An 18

poster_002_1500x2215It was bound to happen.

It had to happen.

It really did.

Just ahead of the Bone Tomahawk showing at the BFI Film Festival, a month before the screening in the Abertoir event, and way ahead of the December general release of the movie in this part of the world, the UK rating organisation the BBFC has rendered its verdict.

Without the rating it is unlikely the film could be shown.  It would require specific approval from the local council for a cinema to show it.

The film has been given the 18 rating, meaning, not surprisingly, that only those 18 years of age and older can legally watch it.

The brief reason given is, not surprisingly given the subject matter:

  • strong violence

You can read more details of the content that lead to that decision on the BBFC website HERE.  I don’t think the text is particularly spoiler-laden, but you have been warned.

The UK December 11th release date, predicted here on KM UK back in September, has been confirmed recently.

Bone Tomahawk Goes For A Telluride

telluride_horror_show_1350x1725Maybe it’s the thin air.

Telluride is at over 2,500m (8,200ft) elevation above sea level, up in the mountains of south west Colorado.  And, it’s in a deep, narrow valley too.  There’s lots of mountain left above the town.

For the sixth time Telluride is holding a horror themed film festival over a long weekend, starting on Friday the 16th of October.

The Telluride Horror Show is a relatively new addition to the social calendar, they’ve had a regular film festival since the mid-70s.

A back-to-back showing (the first starts at 5:30pm) at the Nugget Theatre of Bone Tomahawk closes the event on Sunday night.  Just how many more festivals can this movie close?

The festival comprises of another 20 feature films, some of them from outside the US, most of them quite new.  There are a couple of classics in the mix too: The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Return Of The Living Dead.

There are also nearly 50 short films, again from all over the world, shown in various themed blocks.

All the details, including for tickets, can be found on the official website.

Bone Tomahawk To Kill Again At Abertoir

abertoir_horror_festival_618x206This must be some sort of record!

Has a film ever been the final item in so many film festivals across the globe?

S. Craig Zahler’s (writer/director) Bone Tomahawk will be back in the UK for the Abertoir Film Festival in Wales.  Yes, ‘abertoir’.  It’s a combination of Aberystwyth, the town the event is based in, and abattoir, another word for the horror-staple slaughterhouse.  Nicely done sirs.

Abertoir runs from the 10th to the 15th of November in the local Arts Centre.  The schedule has not yet been completed but the organisers have announced that Bone Tomahawk will be the closing film.  This means that ticket specifics are unavailable at this time.  As of writing there are said to be a few passes left for the full week though.

Check out the official website for more details.

Bone Tomahawk Trailer

trailer_001_screenshotHours after its first ever public screening at the Fantastic Fest event, finally a trailer has been released for Bone Tomahawk via the Entertainment Weekly website.  See the article in full here.

poster_002_1500x2215At 2m30s it is quite long for a trailer.  It gives you the basic set up of the plot with a few dramatic moments shown.

As you can see from the above screenshot (see the Gallery for a larger version) Kathryn makes a fleeting appearance.  That glimpse is probably in proportion with the duration of her role in the full 2 hour feature.

A small copy of the trailer has been added to the KM UK Gallery for your perusal.

Bone Tomahawk is due for general release in the USA, including via VOD services apparently, on October 23rd.

Bone Tomahawk @ Horror/Sci-Fi Showcase

ihsff_horror_showcase_220x184We’re still a few weeks off the general opening of Bone Tomahawk and all it seems to be doing is closing!

The International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival is holding a special showcase next week.  The actual annual festival is held in April of each year in Phoenix, Arizona.

Over three days the Fall Horror Showcase features a film per night, concluding with Bone Tomahawk on Thursday the 8th of October.

The Harkins Scottsdale 101 Theatre, which hosts the screening, is relatively small so there are only around 250 seats available.  So, if you want a ticket you’d better hurry up and visit the official website.
