THE HUNTING (2021) Review of werewolf movie – now with trailer and three new posters



‘Hunger runs deep’

The Hunting is a 2021 American horror film about the citizens of a small town terrorised by a mysterious animal.

Directed by Mark Andrew Hamer (visual effects supervisor for I See You) from a screenplay co-written with Heather Ryan, based on a story by Terrance Ryan. The movie stars Peyton Hillis, Joelle Westwood, Joaquin Guerrero and Keith Migra.


When a mysterious animal attack leaves a mutilated body in the forest, a conservative small-town detective must enlist the help of an eager wildlife specialist to uncover the dark and disturbing truth that threatens the town…

The Hunting doesn’t have a big budget and it doesn’t try to bite off more than it can chew, rather than rely on a CGI creature that just wouldn’t look right, The Hunting opts more for a half-man/ half-wolf creature which works entirely effectively in the stories narrative and makes for a more believable wolf-esque story.” Action Reloaded
