Hunger is a dark exploration into the breakdown of humanity. How far would you go to survive in the most extreme of circumstances? Five strangers awaken to find themselves trapped in an underground dungeon. They soon realize they are the subjects of one man's sadistic experiment to test the depths of a human being's will to survive. As the days go by with no means of escape, their hunger increases as their humanity fades away.Written by
A man, who as child ate his mum after an accident, takes five people captive and leaves them with only water and a knife to research how long it will take for them to give in to cannibalism. The premise is interesting, the acting is pretty good for a low budget film, and it focuses more on human behaviour than the gore fests that this has often been compared to.
There are some poor directorial choices (like opening the film in complete darkness with only the victim's voices to assure you that your screen isn't messed up) and after weeks of being trapped underground the captives still look pretty fresh despite having no hair brushes, razors, or food. After such a time period of starvation, no one gets nearly as fatigued as they should have.
While this film could have been much better, it also could have been much worse. It's right in the middle for me, a solid 5 out of 10 stars. I wouldn't suggest Hunger for the casual viewer, but if you don't mind watching lower budget films, it's definitely worth a try.
