Dark Psychological Horror/Thriller.. Certainly worth a look !!
10 February 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

"Hunger" has the big disadvantage of being called another "Saw" clone but it is a completely different movie. Sure, the story lets you believe that at first. Five strangers wake up in an isolated dungeon and are being monitored by the mysterious kidnapper. It screams "Cube" and "Saw" but this is not a standard torture slasher.

It is an insight study into man's dark passenger. What will we ultimately do to survive ? "Hunger" is surprisingly well made with great acting, an eerie, claustrophobic feeling and intense and gruesome moments. As a viewer, you're really into the story and you know that this will not end well and that blood will flow. "Hunger" is an entertaining movie which will certainly be appreciated by the genre fans. But it's not just for the horror freaks.

The motives for the kidnapper, who will kill to protect his project, are interesting and at the same time it's gruesome reality. The same goes for the choices the people have to make in order to survive. And it will raise the question: What will you do ??
