The 1999 Horror/Cult film Ravenous is a most unusual moving picture, even for one detailing the Wendigo exploits of certain individuals. Many comedic elements continue to pop up, often on the heels of a truly frightening passage. The musical score, by Damon Albarn and Michael Nyman, adds a very great deal to the proceedings. This singular cinematic endeavour starred Robert Carlyle, Guy Pearce, and Jeffrey Jones, with Carlyle in particular standing out. His Colqhoun/Ives character is both the slippery eel and the fulcrum of the film.
**The seemingly invincible Nielsen, and even the record-settingly acerbic Roy Scheider, succumb, in the end, to the resolute Detective.**
The indomitable, dogged, yet supremely courteous Frank Cannon (William Conrad) is unlikely to swerve, even momentarily, from his pursuit of the truth.
