Still in the need of new premieres, the only thing we have to do is talk about some recent movies. Today our #movieoftheday is The Hunt. The film was originally scheduled for release on September 27, 2019. Following mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas in 2019, Universal decided to delay the release of this satirical horror film, should it incite further violence.
The Hunt was theatrically released in the United States on March 13, 2020, and received mixed reviews from critics. The Hunt is a smart satire that uses genre tropes to explore volatile social issues. The plot is loosely based on the 1924 short story “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell.
The movie tells the story of twelve strangers, who wake up in a clearing. They have no idea where they are – or how they got there. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, ruthless elitists gather at a remote location to hunt humans for sport. But their master plan is about to be derailed when one of the hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin), turns the tables on her pursuers.
The villains in this story are liberal elites lead by a woman named Athena (Hilary Swank) who have a preposterous social media backstory fueled by a conspiracy theory known as Manorgate.
One of the film’s pranks is to surprise audiences with cleverly timed and diabolically creative “kills” whenever possible, and more than once, faces you may recognize explode right before your eyes, all but splattering the camera in the process.
