Hunt Club: Review

Cassandra (Mena Suvari) is on the edge and thinking of ending it all. Ever since her daughter went missing, her life had no meaning and she started to drink. Then one night, Cassandra is attacked by a couple of men and just as she thought it was all over, she’s saved by a woman who violently puts an end to their abusive behaviour.

The next day, Cassandra is feeling like she’s in a better place and as she’s settling down for lunch, she meets Carter (Casper Van Dien) and Jackson (Will Peltz), a father and son with a close bond and a keen interest in hunting.

Inviting Cassandra to go on a hunt with them, she’s taken to a quiet, hidden away place where Carter, Jackson and their friends prepare for the hunt. However, little does she know it, but Cassandra is being prepared to be their prey.



Hunt Club is a Thriller directed by Elizabeth Blake-Thomas and written by David Lipper and John Saunders. Something that seemingly may have potential for social commentary on the modern age of gender politics, however, it seems that there just wasn’t enough thought put into it past the premise.

In a similar vein to 2020’s The Hunt, there could have been commentary on such as the MeToo movement and the escalating reports of abuse in the Hollywood film industry. However, what could have worked as a social satire is played too seriously and with misogyny being as relevant a topic now than it ever was, it seems that Hunt Club is stuck in the past.

There may be certain aspects of the movie which are subtle winks to the audience about the familiarities of horror movies. Things such as scantily clad women running away from men who are hunting them down is as cliché as it comes. However, the script doesn’t seem deep enough to inform its audience that it knows what it’s doing.

Instead, Hunt Club seems to be a movie made in order to get a reaction rather than say anything about the state of the world today, and may wash over the real life villains who don’t understand the irony.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
