Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.11.16] book horror western

S. Craig Zahler is on a roll since Bone Tomahawk (review) became somethig of an indie sensation last year. The oft uncredited screenwriter and novelist's name is coming up everywhere. A few days back we reported that he is taking the reigns on a massive Puppet Master reboot and now we hear his debut western novel, Wraith of the Broken Land, has been adapted by Drew Goaddard who will be reunited with The Martian director by Ridley Scott.

Zahler's work is informed by the Splatterpunk movement and blends genres in brutal and fascinating ways in order to investigate what lies within the human soul. Very excited about this news.

About the Book:
Wraiths of the Broken Land is a brutal and unflinching tale that takes many of its cues from both cinema and pulp horror, Wraiths of the Broken Land is like no Western you’ve ever seen or read. Desperate to reclaim two kidnapped sisters who were forced into prostitution, the Plugfords storm across the badlands and blast their way through Hell.

This gritty, character-driven piece will have you by the throat from the very first page and drag you across sharp rocks for its unrelenting duration. Prepare yourself for a savage Western experience that combines elements of Horror, Noir and Asian ultra-violence.

More as it comes, folks!
