The acting and cinematography are great, beautiful scenery, actually nice costumes that fit the period. Guy Pearce and Robert Carlyle are fantastic in this film, and while straying a little from the Wendigo mythology, it still kept pretty true to heart of it; it's a monster and all it does is devour. It's sad that this is rated so low on here.
If you like more psychological horror, this is your type of movie.
Captain John Boyd resides in an outpost in the middle of nowhere. He has a very dark and disturbing past when he had to do the unthinkable to survive. When a group from the camp turn up missing, the Captain lead the men on a search party where they find clues that mirror his nightmares...

Antonia Bird, director of Priest, Mad Love, Face, The Hamburg Cell, Submariners, A Masculin Ending, Care, Rehab, and Cracker, delivers Ravenous. The storyline for this is interesting in a 13th Warrior kind of way. The action and gore are well done and I enjoyed the setting. The acting is better than average and the cast includes Guy Pearce, Robert Carlyle, David Arquette, Jeremy Davies, and Neal McDonough.

I came across this on Netflix and always wanted to watch this again. This is an entertaining and well paced picture with a nice mixture of gore and unique premises. Overall, this is entertaining and worth a viewing but far from a classic.
