... a real western/horror/monster movie with a devoted frontier sensibility and loving nods to The Searchers.
July 28, 2012
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.

rewarding both as a horror film and a period piece.

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.

...a sporadically entertaining yet thoroughly ineffective misfire.

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.
October 8, 2008
Sets you up for 'predictability' in both the western and horror departments, and then subverts those expectations time and again.

October 2, 2008
The pacing is too pokey by half, and the payoff is a wrenching disappointment.
September 22, 2008
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.
September 10, 2008
J.T Petty takes viewers on an unusual and frightening venture into the Old West with The Burrowers.
