Actor Devon Sawa has certainly been delivering some good genre entertainment lately with turns in films like Jarhead: Law of Return, Escape Plan: The Extractors and most recently Disturbing The Peace and The Fanatic. Sawa has been mixing it up being good and bad in these films and now it looks like he’s on the light side for his newest survival horrot-thriller titled Hunter Hunter which also stars Nick Stahl.
IFC Midnight will be releasing the film on December 18th and we have some new images for you while we wait for a trailer.
HUNTER HUNTER follows a family living in the remote wilderness earning a living as fur trappers. Joseph Mersault (Devon Sawa), his wife Anne (Camille Sullivan), and their daughter Renée (Summer H. Howell) struggle to make ends meet and think their traps are being hunted by the return of a rogue wolf. Determined to catch the predator in the act, Joseph leaves his family behind to track the wolf. Anne and Renée grow increasingly anxious during Joseph’s prolonged absence and struggle to survive without him.
When they hear a strange noise outside their cabin, Anne hopes it is Joseph but instead finds a man named Lou (Nick Stahl), who has been severely injured and left for dead. The longer Lou stays and Joseph is away, the more paranoid Anne becomes, and the idea of a mysterious predator in the woods slowly becomes a threat much closer to home.
Hunter Hunter also stars Camille Sullivan (THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE), and Summer Howell (CURSE OF CHUCKY) with Shawn Linden seving as the film’s director and writer on the project.
Linden spoke of the labor of love and the long time it took to complete the films and teaming with IFC Midnight:
“Hunter Hunter has been over 10-years in the making, and we’re looking forward to now collaborating with IFC Midnight on another leg of that journey. In this film, I really wanted to explore the depths of human nature, specifically the capacity for cruelty that separates us from the rest of the natural world. It’s a thrill to finally bring it to audiences, and I hope it serves to thoroughly creep them out.”
Expect a trailer a anytimne for this one and you’ll see it here as we are your destination for everything action!!!
