The Bone Snatcher (2003)

The wilds of Africa strike back! Yet again, a group of white people — along with the token black local — are terrorized by native wildlife, with Marlin Perkins nowhere in sight. Unlike the typical jungle setting, though, The Bone Snatcher takes place in the desert, providing a unique, scenic setting…for death. Bwuhaahahaaa!!!

Anyway, what anybody really cares about in this type of movie is how cool the monster is, and here it’s actually well-conceived and executed: millions of killer ant thingees that eat the meat off your bones, then without so much as a eulogy, they use your bones to walk around — presumably making it easier to drive and, like, get into clubs and stuff. The black folk in the film are mostly of marginal importance — not even worth dying — except for the lone member of the rescue team, Titus (Patrick Shai), who does get the distinction of having a death scene. Hooray! With the words “bone” and “snatch” in the title, though, I was expecting a lot more porn.

“Hey hey, keep your eyes above the neck, mister.”
“Dude, this will totally mess you up.”
“Oh, hey…I was just, er, looking for my…um…Woof?”

What do you think?
