Quotes:
Narrator:A study of history confirms the validity of the Big Hunt theory: it is mankind's safety valve. And if in 1940 the Big Hunt had existed, Hitler would've been a member and we could have avoided WWII. Now all is resolved, wars are over, and the violent instincts of man can now be expressed by a single and set competition.See more »

run out and rent this oddity!, 3 June 2003
Author: John Dean from John Dean

This instantly shot to up to one of my new favorite films. It's everything the film SERIES-7 pretended to be, based on the Sheckley novel that pretty much invented the televised human hunting sub-genre. This film has all the irreverence of the a mid-60's, the ornate costumes, set design and absurdist wit. Marcello Mastrioni is hilarious as the bored, easygoing contestant who seems to be waltzing through without a scratch, and Ursula Andress is wonderful as the cold-blooded siren. The film falls off the deep end in the last five minutes, must have been some great LSD on the set that day, but overall this is a must see for any true cinephile.
