The Hunt -- On a chilly fall morning, Jack Hamberg, his eight-year-old stepson and cameraman Atticus Monroe head into the woods to make an instructional hunting video when their outing takes a disturbing turn. While trespassing on restricted land, they stumble upon the relics of a bizarre religious monument and soon realize they're being stalked by someone or something not of this earth! Based on actual events, The Hunt is an alarmingly frightening film that combines horrific elements of The Blair Witch Project and Predator. You'll be on the edge of your seat from beginning to shocking end!
The Hunt -- There are over 43 million hunters in the United States today. A great number of hunters...a great number of deer. Statistically something was bound to go wrong.

A Surprise Ending you won't see coming, 18 May 2006
Author: lost-37 from United States

I saw this film at the Chicago Horror Film Festival and I must say that it had a surprise ending that you just don't see coming. The acting in it is also very good, surprising to see in many Independent films that you see. Plus the effects were done very well. I can't believe this one didn't win best Effects at the festival.

I did see that it did win Best Actor which is good. Robert Rusler (Vamp) did a great job in this film. His character was just so far out there and fun to watch. The kid also did a great job in the film.

The film is a little confusing at first, with all the cutting in of different kinds of footage, but once the film gets moving, it stays flowing at a pretty smooth pace.
