deci "cei ascunsi", sau "ascunsii", sau "cei de sub pamint", etc, daca spui "Creaturile de sub pamint" e prea mult spoiler dar si gen Tremors (si Critters parca, doua horroruri din anii 80). Dar acest straight to dvd Burrowers e un western care se intimpla la 1879, in timpul Razboiului Civil, un soi de The Searchers cu mix horror, complet cu indieni as the usual suspects, regizat destul de cool. Copia care am vazut-o nu era 2.35 ci un soi de 1.85 or less, deci n-am putut judeca imaginea, incadratura fiind doar mai claustrofobica. Cross de genuri destul de interesant,

synopsis complet:
It is 1879 in the Dakota Territories. A handful of brave pioneers maintain isolated settlements in the badlands beyond civilization. Irish Immigrant Fergus Coffey is near to winning the hand of his beloved Maryanne when she is suddenly taken from him, her family brutally abducted in a nighttime attack on their homestead. Suspicion falls immediately on hostile Indians. Experienced Indian fighters Will Parcher and John Clay form a posse and set out to rescue the kidnapped settlers, taking along a naïve teenager hoping to prove himself a man, an ex-slave looking to find his place in the world and their ranch-hand, Coffey. But as men vanish in the night and horrific evidence accumulates with the dead and dying, the group discovers that their prey is far more terrifying than anything human, and their prospects are far more terrible than death.

scris si regizat de J.T. Petty (al carui prim film, ciudatel, Soft for Digging-2001, l-am vazut si care a a filmat Mimic 3: the Sentinel in Romania cu domnu Lance'), cu character actors dedicati (William Mapother, Clancy Brown, Doug Hutchinson, Karl Geary), mi-a adus aminte de Dead Birds, un alt western horror, de data asta intr-o casa, pe cind Burrowers e along the trail, in cimp si paduri. probabil pe ecran lat, intr-o vizionare adecvata filmul ar fi avut de cistigat, oricum o incercare onorabila pe care Lion's Gate au aruncat-o straight to dvd, destinata unui cult following minor. O cronica franceza de la festivalul Gerardmer aici.
