The Hunt - Action, Horror, Thriller

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Jul 31, 2019 6:20 am

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.

I hadn't watched the trailer so I didn't realize it was so political. I can see the premise causing a lot of outcry from people, but saying it incites gun violence is stupid.

The people who are saying it's causing an outcry is also the 'too soon' crowd after school shootings, so it annoys me out of principle, even if the entire movie was created in bad taste.

Yeah, those same people were going to be mad about this movie no matter what. The recent shootings are just a convenient reason for them to be even more vocal about it and get it pulled.

I didn't realize it was political either. I thought it was just a retelling of The Most Dangerous game.

I didn't know Leftovers alum were involved.

This movie will probably do better since they pushed the date back. I don't remember Gilpin being in the first trailer...but I probably didn't watch it.
