Trivia

Many of the scenes were shot at the Duché de Bicolline, a Live Action Role-Playing (LARP) compound in rural Quebec, during their annual Great Battle event. The director commented that after the production manager accidentally "rammed his pickup truck into the Echo of an extra", they tried to make it up to the extra by giving him a bigger part (one of Murtagh's enforcers).

Pessimistic yet engaging.
22 February 2014 | by the_arbitrator-708-674662See all my reviews

The Wild Hunt is dark. The LARPers for the most part come across as craven, reminiscent of Vikings, nordic warriors and pub-dwellers alike.

The lovers are morose throughout. The actors in the background were largely mute. The real gems of acting come from the King, the Viking leader and Shaman. But these were inconsistent.

The film stood out because it evoked emotion and worry throughout, the soundtrack created mood and the well delivered tirades of screaming and begging encompassed tangible fear. The question of, "How far will they go?" really carried the film for me. Not wanting to have the dark side of humanity revealed but far too intrigued to stop watching.

The cinematography was realistic, with the tone and music really pinpointing the despair of being locked in a false reality at the behest of others.

There were moments where the film lulled to a crawl but this same failure, that of dragging time, really allowed the dramatic moments longevity.

While I didn't enjoy all of the movie, I give it 7/10 for the innovation and emotions it evoked.
