"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
The last fight scene when the fighters come through the door at the end the door swings partially shut. While Crystal is lying on the floor and looks over at the rabbit the door is fully open. See more »
You're going to hell.
I don't believe in hell. As you so eloquently posted, I'm a godless elite. For the record, asshole, climate change is real.

Polarizing & Mordant Satire - A Like-It or Hate-It Film
'The Hunt' tries hard to please, and it succeeds at providing some very cleaver moments throughout the film. For the low dollars invested, this Tarantino-ish production delivers a good ROI for the audience.
Lead actress Betty Gilpin carries the film over the finish line merging excellent girl-power action skills with a laconic-droll comedic performance.
A competent supporting cast make their contributions before their inevitable demise takes them out of the picture.
Looks at first to be heading towards a political agenda, the film quickly makes its true intent clear on such - it satirizes today's hyper-sensitive, and highly polarized and opinionated right vs left social-media/blogging environment.
There is thankfully really no in-your-face thought-provoking messaging involved here...just an effort in having some fun, supported by a witty script and direction/editing that keeps the film moving at just the right pace.
Be advised, this film is WAY too violent, gory, and inappropriate for children.
The film grows on you mostly due to Gilpin's performance, but the screenplay deserves applause too.
Overall, I liked this film a lot more than I anticipated I would.
Give this film at least 30 minutes before making the call to continue or not.
