Land VIOLENCE/GORE 4

 – A woman hits herself on the head and screams in frustration; she puts the barrel of a rifle under her chin, but does not pull the trigger. A woman goes out in a blizzard tying herself with a rope so as to not lose her way; she retrieves wood, returns to the cabin to find the door is stuck and when she kicks it open she falls to the floor unconscious.

 A woman in an outhouse hears snuffling and grunting outside and sees a bear approaching; it pounds on the wall of the outhouse and she is startled, and it goes into her cabin and rustles through her food stores crushing cans and spilling rice on the floor. A woman collects water from a stream in large containers; when she loses her grip on one container, she floats in the stream to retrieve it. Wolves howl and run near a cabin at night. Animals outside a cabin screech and howl at night and something seems to be slamming into the side of the cabin or the roof, startling a woman inside the cabin, as she’s trying to sleep.
 A man lies in a bed with oxygen tubes in his nose and he tells a woman that he has throat cancer (we understand that he dies).

A woman shakes from weakness when trying to eat and a man feeds her. A man sleeps in his car outside a cabin.

After working outside and chopping wood, a woman has several open blisters on her hands that she wraps with bandages. A woman sets snare traps for small animals and fishes in a stream.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
