The Hunt (Fritz Kiersch, 2006)

I've been trying to write a review of The Hunt for, according to my spreadsheet, almost exactly a month now. (I watched it on November 11 and I'm writing this on December 9.) I've started it three or four times, and then it sizzles out about halfway through. I like the parallel that makes to the movie, actually, which starts off in a kind of slow-but-awesome mode and then degenerates into a weird mishmash of survival horror and sci-fi before jumping right off a cliff in the final minutes.

Made in mockumentary format (in the same "here's this video we found" mode as The Blair Witch Project et al.), The Hunt is the parallel stories of a trio of guys who go into a private land-lease they've rented in order to make a hunting video and the frantic efforts of one guy's ex-wife and her new husband to find out what happened to them. The hunters are played by Joe Michael Burke (Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles), Mitchell Burns (Pearl), and Robert Rusler (The Whole Ten Yards), while the frantic ex-wife (of Burke's character) and her husband are Amy Briede (Surveillance) and the ubiquitous Cliff DeYoung (Last Flight Out).

It's the trying-to-find-the-guys scenes that make this movie worth watching. DeYoung is by far the most experienced of the actors in this flick, and that's obvious. That part of the script is better-written, as well; we get a real sense of creeping dread as Briede and DeYoung's characters encounter roadblock after roadblock in their investigation, and then try and figure out why everyone who lives in the area is so close-mouthed about the history of disappearances in the area.

The blurb on the back of the DVD case compares this film to Blair Witch and Predator. While it is true all 3 films had actors, were filmed with cameras and are available on DVD, this is about as far as the comparsion can go. This film was boring, pure and simple. I was actually rooting for the deer the whole time, I was hoping he would get some help from the other forest creatures and turn the tables on "handsome man", "whiny brat" and "jerky drunk". I've seen better films on Youtube, don't waste your time on this fetid pile of garbage.

I always remember that "Star Trek" was sold as "'Wagon Train' to the stars" and that "Miami Vice" was simply "MTV cops" to the network. "Hollywood," by which I mean the entire entertainment industry, always likes to pass off something old as something new. They are never interested in breaking new ground, just in making more money, and God forbid that they do not have ample cinematic references to make them feel that they on the right track. On our end of the entertainment universe we only get to watch these things, but it is fun to work on the cinematic math on a movie. For example, "The 13th Warrior" equals "The Seven Samurai" plus "Beowulf" with "Clan of the Cave Bear" thrown in for fun. I bring this all up because it does not take you long to figure out that "The Hunt" equals "The Blair Witch Project" meets "The Most Dangerous Game" via "The X-Files" (if you are old enough to remember "The Most Dangerous Game" substitute "The Twilight Zone" for the "X-Files," but if you have never heard of "The Most Dangerous Game" think of something more recent like "The Eliminator" or "...Read more ›

So-so beer and pretzel movie. B-grade movie, decent acting. Movie starts slowly, but the suspense builds and actually did hold my interest once the characters got in the woods to hunt deer. Once there, the hunters become the hunted. I enjoyed the "surprise" ending too, although it was somewhat predictable. Worth renting for a weekend evening if you don't have anything better to do.

If you choose to watch The Hunt (and I'm not saying you shouldn't,) you may want to invest in some hair plugs. You're going to spend the bulk of the film scratching your head. What exactly was the creepy research-site-salt-pile-place? What was the significance of the creepy voice in the woods or the deer with the branch protruding through its neck? As near as I could tell, none of these elements had any bearing on the film itself, and were merely inserted just to lampshade the main characters' mind-blowingly awful decisions.

Think the kids from Blair Witch were a little dumb? They were astrophysicists compared to our intrepid trio. These geniuses meet all manner of colorfully creepy Deliverance folk on their way to the forest, cross under a prison fence whilst stalking a deer, go right past a buckshot "no trespassing" sign, bear witness to all the weirdness mentioned above, and still decide that hunkering down in an abandoned branch-and-leaf shelter is preferable to returning to the truck and civilization. Why? Because they're filming a hunting video which will apparently make their fortunes once Walmart (Walmart!) picks it up, and this is apparently the one remaining tract of in the Western Hemisphere where the Great White Hunter might find the ever-elusive White Tailed Deer. Or maybe it's because there might be escaped prisoners, and exclusive footage might somehow redeem the douchebag cameraman's career. Or maybe it was because the wimpy kid was hungry, and required eight hours to consume a Snickers bar.

Which was it? I'm not sure, and I'm not sure the director was either. He may have been too busy trying to decide just what it was he was trying to make.
