Barry (Gary Green), to put it politely, is not a lovely human being. He is a heavy drug addict and has no interests in looking after his current partner and only child, all of whom live in a small rundown home. Visiting a local pub, Barry catches up with a mate and does some more drugs, eventually walking home utterly high and filled with alcohol.

During his walk home, a bright light appears in the night sky. Barry is abducted…

If I was 11 years old this HARD-R kids flick would be my favorite movie of all time.
(That’s a compliment.)

Review by Kate Erbland

First, some history: “Dracula” author Bram Stoker, the ostensible inventor of our modern idea of the vampire, was Irish. Now, some retconning: in the world of Chris Baugh’s plucky horror comedy “Boys from County Hell,” Stoker’s villain was inspired by the evil exploits of Abhartach, a resident in the tiny Irish village of Six Mile Hill who delighted in drinking the blood of his neighbors. A local offed Abhartach and he was buried beneath a tall…

Most moviegoers don't see that many movies like Hunted, but if you go to genre festivals or spend a lot of time digging through your favorite streaming services to find the new selections, it gets categorized: Survival horror, nature, woman on the run, etc. What makes one of those stand out?

She concludes with a warning: “The company of wolves is better than that of men.”

I wasn't expecting how hilariously bonkers it got in the last half hour or so. It was incredible! Lots of interesting sub-text in both its lead and psychopathic villain too. Some war PTSD, LGBT themes, differing ways of being brought up, all coming back to the wolf/cub dynamic in new and engaging ways. Incredible well done film.
