Director J.T Petty's nasty romp followed up Alex Turner's Dead Birds (2004) and preceeded John Geddes Exit Humanity (2011) in the Old West/monster movie mash-up genre; it may well be the best of them.

... proves once again that the old west still isn't the ideal place to set a monster movie.

Petty is pursuing a more measured, sympathetic take on demons that feast on the gelatinous innards of innocent victims, manufacturing a tediously wandering picture that craves substance while itching to entertain its absurd grindhouse sensibilities.

At his most placid, JT Petty can make Terrence Malick look like Guy Ritchie. But when he's not going full-'bore', his quiet, creepy brand of terror works on several levels.

Sets you up for 'predictability' in both the western and horror departments, and then subverts those expectations time and again.

The pacing is too pokey by half, and the payoff is a wrenching disappointment.

Beautifully shot and tightly scripted, it's the rare Hollywood genre film that's more concerned with human relationships and behavior than the mysterious supernatural forces that sets the action in motion.

J.T Petty takes viewers on an unusual and frightening venture into the Old West with The Burrowers.
