Charlie invites David to hunt deers with his group and him but they leave David alone in the woods and rape Amy.

The film, a remake of the controversially violent 1971 movie, is considered fairly faithful to Sam Peckinpah's original, though the location has been moved from Cornwall, England to the U.S. Mississippi Gulf Coast, and the hero's profession has been changed from mathematician to screenwriter.

After the fake hunt, the Sheriff asks David if his rifle is registered. In Mississippi, where the film is set, there is no state licensing or registration requirements for long guns. See more »

After reading the reviews of this film and seeing the original, I wasn't really looking forward to watching this movie but glad I did
I suggest to ignore all previous bad reviews & not to compare with the original 1971 film I thought this was a well made movie, with a good cast. The story line is similar to the original but in my opinion better but just bought in to the 21st century.
Acting was very good, very surprised & quite annoyed at some of the comments
I enjoy watching many movies & have to say this has been one of the better movies I have watched recently.
Watch it with an open mind Enjoy as I did. Very good movie
