Trivia

According to Director Susanne Bier, the post-production of the film was complicated by the need for dialogue dubbing, due to airplane noise during the shoot in Prague. Jennifer Lawrence was unable to show up for dubbing sessions. The producers of this movie tried to buy Lawrence out of filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) for one day, but that proved to be more expensive than the budget of this movie. See more »

Goofs

At minute 40:07 Pemberton and Buchanan encounter the bear. The bear that appears on screen is a grizzly, not a black bear. Grizzlies did not inhabit the Smoky Mountains of 1929. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Pemberton: Hell, that dog's bigger than that. I thought you said there were panthers here.
Galloway: I ain't seen a panther in these mountains for nine years.
Pemberton: What about the carcass we found up in Noland? Something mauled that.
Galloway: That weren't no panther. Chest weren't torn open. They eat the heart first.
Pemberton: You find me an honest-to-God panther to hunt, and I'll give you a $20 gold piece.
Galloway: If there's a panther still around here it's likely touched by the devil. They end up hunting you.
Pemberton: Well, I want one.

Insulting.
7 May 2015 | by summerinertiaSee all my reviews

As an independent film director, it makes me sick that films like these are still being funded and made by incompetent, crappy writers/directors. There is so much directorial talent out there that don't have the expenses to make it big, whilst bad directors like the one who made this film continue to bring out and recycle rubbish through Hollywood. Nothing to say about the film... its just awful, but I will continue since I need a minimum length of 10 lines to submit to review. Don't EVER watch this movie, even if its free on TV, you will want you 1-2 hours back....
