Having enjoyed a lengthy festival run, gun-totin’ horror-thriller Happy Hunting now has a brand new trailer and poster, ahead of its release later this month.
The film is the work of co-writers/directors Joe Dietsch and Louie Gibson. It looks to be firmly slotted into the human-hunting subgenre that takes in exploitation gems such as Turkey Shoot and Open Season, cult favourites like The Running Man and Battle Royale and the recent The Purge series.
An alcoholic drifter must battle withdrawal and psychotic rednecks after he becomes the target of a deranged sporting event.
The cast of relative unknowns includes Martin Dingle Wall, Ken Lally, Kenny Wormald, Connor Williams and Gary Sturm.
Happy Hunting hits cinemas on September 22, 2017.
