IFC Midnight’s latest offering Hunter Hunter is set to release in select theaters, on digital, and On-Demand on December 18, 2020.
Based on what we see in the trailer this film appears to be about nature running amok in the form of a sizable wild wolf. Severed limbs and a campsite massacre have law enforcement on high-alert while a family living in a remote cabin tries to figure out the true enemy.
But don’t go by what I say; here’s the synopsis followed by the trailer:
Hunter Hunter follows a family living in the remote wilderness earning a living as fur trappers. Joseph Mersault (Devon Sawa), his wife Anne (Camille Sullivan), and their daughter Renée (Summer H. Howell) struggle to make ends meet and think their traps are being hunted by the return of a rogue wolf. Determined to catch the predator in the act, Joseph leaves his family behind to track the wolf. Anne and Renée grow increasingly anxious during Joseph’s prolonged absence and struggle to survive without him.
When they hear a strange noise outside their cabin, Anne hopes it is Joseph but instead finds a man named Lou (Nick Stahl), who has been severely injured and left for dead. The longer Lou stays and Joseph is away, the more paranoid Anne becomes, and the idea of a mysterious predator in the woods slowly becomes a threat much closer to home.
