Why watch this film?
In the line of violent dystopian works such as 'Battle Royale' or the more popular 'The Hunger Games', 'The Hunt' can be described as yet another movie with a parable about a society in misery. However, this one, directed by Craig Zobel (director of episodes of series like 'Westworld' or 'American Gods') and written by Damon Lindelof (creator of the successful television series 'Watchmen'), intends to be a satire of the deep social and political divide between the right and the left that exists in the United States (and, of course, also in Brazil), with heated debates about liberalism, conservatism and the role of the media. It may not be as deep and acidic as it seems, but with its extreme violence and a star-studded cast featuring Hilary Swank ('Boys Don't Cry'), Emma Roberts ('Nerve: A Game Without Rules') and Betty Gilpin ('GLOW'), the result is still a fun feature film with a B-movie feel. Moreover, this is a Blumhouse production - famous for making successful low-budget horror films, in the vein of the remake of 'The Invisible Man' and 'Paranormal Activity'.
Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don't know where they are, or how they got there. They don't know they've been chosen - for a very specific purpose - The Hunt.
