I said no food. I didn’t say there was nothing to eat. Captain John Boyd (Guy Pearce) is a coward. After inadvertently (and indirectly based upon his cowardice) claiming an opposing stronghold during the Mexican-American War, he is relocated for his actions to an outpost in Sierra Nevadas. There, he finds himself second in command of a rag-tag group of eccentric, fellow soldiers. Things take a turn for the eerie when a stranger (Robert Carlyle), half-famished and near death, arrives at their door. The stranger tells them of a lost wagon train he was a part of, and the unspeakable horrors the group resorted to in order to survive. The soldiers take it as their duty to seek out the lost wagon train but not before their Native American guide explains to them the power of the Wendigo. It is a myth that whoever partakes in the flesh of man will gain that person’s strengths and could very well become consumed with this cannibalistic act. Horror and yes, a little bit of comedy ensue.
