DC’s Shudder Pick of the Weekend – The Burrowers

For those of you who like their old west tales sprinkled with monsters and terror you’re not gonna do much better than J.T. Petty’s killer creature feature, The Burrowers.

After a family of settlers in the Wild West goes missing, their neighbors assume they’ve been taken by American Indians and form a search party to bring them back. But the group soon realize that their real enemies aren’t warriors hiding in the trees, but monstrous worm-like creatures who burrow underground and bury their victims alive before eating them. For his fourth feature, director J.T. Petty (S&MAN) carved out his own unique subgenre: the horror Western, wisely treating the set-up with deadly seriousness instead of turning it into camp or parody.
