"Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don't know where they are -- or how they got there. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, ruthless elitists gather at a remote location to hunt humans for sport. But their master plan is about to be derailed when one of the hunted, Crystal, turns the tables on her pursuers.Written by
It was believed the film was originally going to be called "Red State vs Blue State," but this was later denied by Universal, who stated it was never a working title anytime during production. See more »
On the boxes in the train, "This end up" is translated to Serbo-Croatian as "Ovde zavrsiti" which actually means "Finish here". The proper translation should be "Gore" which is used in this context, meaning "up", or "ova strana gore"/"ovaj kraj gore"/"gornja strana" which is more literal.
Additionally, "This end" is shown as "Dieses Ende" which is the literal German translation. However, in German that makes no sense at all. A correct marking would have simply been "Oben" (for "Up"). See more »

True to the adage: 100% of Americans think 50% of Americans have lost their minds.
Much more enjoyable than expected.
The beginning of it is funny enough, but it is the ensuing few scenes which are riotously HILARIOUS and make it worth watching- I literally laughed until I cried.
Toward the middle of the film, there is a wide gap where the laugh-out-loud moments are slowed and further and further apart, but still bring a smile or giggle here and there. The ending while good, is overshadowed by a preceding fight scene that is one for the books. It was really, really well done.
The best part of the entire movie though, and what makes it stand out, is that if a person watching has more than two brain cells, the dialogue is spot-on close-to-perfect in mocking BOTH SIDES of the political divide. And here, is what I think people are missing: NEITHER side is depicted as being 'better' than the other. Or worse. It has fun at the expense of everyone and it doesn't do it in any overtly mean way, but in a way where we can nod and nod and nod and laugh ... at ourselves ... no matter who we are or where we stand.
Lastly, a horror film - it is not. Somewhat gory, yes. A "horror" film? no.
