In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a bunch of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt humans for sport. But the elites' master plan is about to be derailed because one of the hunted, Crystal, knows The Hunters' game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman at the center of it all.
Action Horror Thriller - While having a lot of action and violence, this is mostly a dark and very over the top political satire played completely for laughs. Betty Gilpin is the focal star here, and fans of some others in the cast, such as Emma Roberts, Justin Hartley, Ike Barinholtz, and Hilary Swank may be disappointed by their limited screen time. Lots of graphic, extremely bloody violence and constant language make the film not for kids.

Roger EbertFull Review Below Average The unoriginality of "The Hunt” extends to its cinematography, which Darran Tiernan paints with one shade of grey and maroon bloodstains, its unremarkable production design by Matthew Munn, and its stereotype-reaffirming wardrobe from costume designer David Tabbert.
USA TodayFull Review Good "The Hunt" will make you laugh -- perhaps nervously, with the occasional half-a-body laying around after a landmine goes off. It will also tick off those with a thin skin and without an open mind.
Rolling StoneFull Review Above Average The politically charged thriller that Trump didn't want you to see finally hits theaters -- and proves to be a better-then-decent B-movie.
Slant MagazineFull Review Average The Hunt promotes a bland bothsidesism that's useless in our Trumpian present but very safe for a corporate product intended to pacify rather than radicalize. The film was almost canceled for being too partisan, so it's ironic to discover that it's practically apolitical.
