    [BD Review] ‘The Hunt’ Shoots the American Screenplay Right Between the Eyes | | Bloody DisgustingBloody Disgusting

    The Hunt plays out beautifully, well paced and delicately shot by DP Anna Naigeon and camera operator Sylvian Bourjac, wiping away any of the grime or amateurism a low budget film would normally stain viewers with. The acting is just emotional enough, and the sounds (such as struggling to breathe from a mouth without a tongue) of survival rise above the script. The music is sometimes reminiscent of John Carpenter’s early work (Assault on Precinct 13), and the chases mimicking how you might see a tiger chase down a gazelle – its a visceral experience that you feel and become embedded in, as opposed to reading subtitles and being told a story verbally – and this works, top to bottom.

    The air of danger and survival is fairly palpable, which gives The Hunt a worthy score in my book. The gore and graphic violence headed by David Scherer has its see-through moments at times (for instance, discolored latex across the throat), but there is an ample amount of blood splashing from injuries, as you’d expect from a French horror film. Its not anywhere near the power of Inside, or Martyrs, in comparison, but you wont be left without the attempted violence you’d expect from a film like this.

    As far as special features, the DVD that is available now comes with nothing extra, not even a trailer. But, its being sold at a very modest price (just above ten dollars), which is a relief in itself for the new releases department.

    What is most likeable about The Hunt, is how it all plays out. While I’m dying to spill what makes this screenplay so outstanding from the main, and unpredictable, to do so would ruin the film. At 78 minutes, it flies by and wastes no time with unnecessary filler. It pretty much takes the American 90 minute script format, as Syd Field might propose, and shoves it up your ass and does its own thing. While some who are conditioned to Hollywood endings might cry foul, its a fresh step away from expectations, and makes The Hunt an enjoyable horror film that stands out from the pack.
    Sounds like a nice little find.

    Review: Rebecca Hall Chiller 'The Awakening' Is Flawed, But Also Kind Of A Blast | The Playlist

    And British chiller "The Awakening," while certainly commercial, is a more old-fashioned kind of ghost story, firmly of a piece with recent genre hits like "The Others" and "The Orphanage." With backing from BBC Films, and a strong cast led by Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton, it certainly seems to be on the classier side of the horror movie spectrum, and our hopes were high that it might provide a little change of pace. And so it did. The film, the debut from TV director Nick Murphy, has more than its share of flaws, but it also gets its balance of tones right, proving spooky, involving and occasionally resonant, while still managing to bring something new to a well-worn tale, and providing a terrific lead part for one of the most promising actresses of her generation.
    Opens in limted release this week, I believe.

    Don't really have a feel for this one. Gut instinct says it's more pg-13 J-Horror(cause that's new and current) with a cast of flavor of the minnit pretty folk, but who knows?

    When the toilets of hell have all been clogged up, hot slices of caca will roam the earth.
