A new version of The Most Dangerous Game, this finds Cassandra (Mena Suvari, a long way from American Pie) trying to find her lost girlfriend and daughter. It leads her to Carter (Casper Van Dien), who offers her $100,000 to be part of the hunt on his island.
I’m sure you can see where this is going. He wants her to be part of the hunter, along with other women like Tessa (Maya Stojan) and Lexi (Jessica Belkin) while he and his rich friends like Jackson (Will Peltz) and Virgil (Mickey Rourke) try to kill them.
But those rich guys have no idea just how dangerous women can be.
I have to tell you, this movie has one of the bloodier and most upsetting castrations I’ve seen in a movie and if that’s not a selling point, I don’t know what is.
Directed by Elizabeth Blake-Thomas (Unseen, Just Swipe) and written by David Lipper and John Saunders, Hunt Club might not break any new ground, but it moves quick, looks good and has plenty of star power for a streaming movie. I love that Van Dien has found a second life playing heavies in movies like this, because he’s really great in this film.
Hunt Club is available on digital, on demand and on DVD from Uncork’d Entertainment.
Went to the premiere of this one about 10 days ago.. had a blast. Met the whole cast and everyone was so nice. I love your review… I found it totally entertaining.. not everything needs to be an Oscar movie and this was just fun. 🙂
