Belly Timber is a 2016 American period horror feature film directed by Bobby Easley (The Dead Bodies in #223; All Sinner’s Night; The Boogeyman [2014]) from a screenplay by Dustin Kay (S.K.B.) and Ken Wallace. The Horror Wasteland Pictures production stars John Dugan, John Johnson and Nate Olp.


For John McCormick, life on the Indiana frontier held nothing but promise. His settlement along the White River would soon become the crossroads of America. Friends and family from back in Ohio and other points east were all making plans to see what all the fuss was about in the newly-formed city of Indianapolis.

However, in Ohio, an evil was brewing. The Lecky family, a group of ruthless Mongolian nomads, had made their way to America and were practicing their cannibalistic religion of Kala with reckless abandon. No one was safe, not even John McCormick’s family…

Belly Timber was released on DVD in the USA by the Shami Media Group on July 10, 2018. Buy DVD via


“Expect bits and pieces of Bone Tomahawk and the Sawney Bean legend mixed into one mixed-up whole and you’ll be close. Sadly, this rather incongruous effort is merely an excuse for lots of nastiness with knives being dragged across naked flesh and low-rent gore effects. The whole thing feels anachronistic…” Leofwine_draca
