In this video review, join EJ Moreno as he breaks down the latest from Blumhouse, The Hunt. While he has no real issues with the attempt at a political satire, the filmmaking behind it doesn’t back up the shock. Betty Gilpin carries the entire film, but sadly EJ feels the material she is given doesn’t warrant her talents. Watch the review below, and be sure to head on over to our YouTube channel for more videos and exclusive content…
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.
In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a group of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt ordinary Americans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of The Hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin, GLOW), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.
