We recently received a heads up from IFC Midnight about their acquisition of Hunter Hunter. While we don’t have a lot of information to go on just yet, we do know that it stars Devon Sawa and Nick Stahl. As someone who was a teenage girl in the 90s, they have my attention. IFC Midnight is calling this a “deep woods killer thriller” which is definitely a descriptor I can get behind.
Director Shawn Linden sheds a little light on the nature of the story by stating:
“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.”
Release details have not yet been announced, but we will be keeping an eager eye out for this one. We do, however, have a few debut stills to share. So check those out, below, and let us know what you think!
