IFC Midnight has shared the official trailer for Hunter Hunter, a toothy horror-thriller from writer-director Shawn Linden.
The film follows a family living in the remote wilderness earning a living as fur trappers. Joseph Mersault (Final Destination’s 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. But 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…
Hunter Hunter bites into theatres and VOD on December 18th. Check out the trailer below!
