Very gritty and unpleasant thriller.
8 December 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Code of Hunt" is an extremely rare Spanish thriller that left me disturbed and speechless.This is one of the hardest to come by titles that existed in only two video releases,one Spanish(it's country of origin)and the other Greek.Both are now long deleted many years ago and both are ultra-rare.A famous Spanish actress Assumpta Serna plays Adela,a defender of poor criminals.Unfortunately her latest defendants steal her car and find the keys to her country villa.During the robbery her husband is killed and three of the criminals run away.The youngest criminal(who is the brother of one of the villains)is captured by the police and dies in prison.For Adela this is the beginning of pure nightmare..."Code of Hunt" is a very gritty and bleak film that has to be seen to be believed.The acting is excellent and the violence is ugly and brutal.The climax is incredibly vicious and sadistic in its cold depiction of sexual violence and revenge.This little gem seems to be forgotten by fans of European cult cinema,but if you get a copy treasure it.10 out of 10.
