At a diner in the middle of nowhere, Cassandra (Mena Suvari) has a fall-out with her girlfriend Tessa (Maya Stojan), upon which Tessa takes off, leaving Cassandra without a ride. Fortunately, she stumbles upon Southern gentleman Carter (Casper Van Dien) and her son Jackson (Will Peltz), who don't only offer her a ride, but also invite her to "the hunt", an annual event where the contestants can win $100,000. Cassandra happily accepts, and before long she becomes good friends with Jackson ... when suddenly she's chlorophormed and thrown into a hut with some other girls, who are all there for the hunt - only the women are supposed to be prey while their hunters are a bunch of rich guys who want to feel manly by hunting down defenseless women with guns and crossbows and pay handsomely for the experience, while Carter beneath all his good manners is toxic masculinity personified. And he's especially motivated to make the hunt as savage as can be this year around as he wants to finally make his son "a man". Now fortunately for Cassandra she hasn't come to this "hunt" unprepared and new beforehands what she has gotten herself into - but then again she's still unarmed going against a group of men with weapons of all sorts ...

Mickey Rourke plays Carter's groundskeeper and warden to his stable of girls.


Now the manhunt premise is a popular horror mainstay at least since The Most Dangerous Game from 1932 and has spawned quite a few films of varying quality over the circa 90 years since - and this one is one of the most ambitious ones of the flock, as it adds social commentary to the mix, takes on some interesting undercurrents of the story and brings them to the foreground - from toxic masculinity to the cruelty of a hunt (any hunt really) -, and manages to end on a message of empowerment. But this all makes the film sound more brain-heavy than it is, as it also works as a rather straight-forward action movie with well choreographed chases and fights, and a cast that embodies their roles well - and the result is just really cool entertainment ... that still will leave you thinking.
