Macabre...ish Horror Review: Surviving The Game

 

 

 

Surviving The Game, 1994/ 96 min.

 

 

A homeless man, Mason, is saved from suicide and hired as a hunting guide after losing his only friends, Hank and his dog, Bingo, on the same day.

 

 

He’s flown to a remote location, a cabin in hundreds of acres of woods, to meet the rest of the hunting party, all wealthy men, who each paid $50,000 for the pleasure of being a part of it.

 

 

After a someone disturbing evening of bonding, the next morning, Mason gets a rude awakening when he discovers they aren’t there for animals, it’s him they are hunting. They give him a head start, however long it takes the group to finish breakfast.

 

 

Then they wager on who will draw his blood first. When Mason circles back around to the house to search for weapons, he finds trophies of past hunts instead. And becomes a formidable opponent.

 

 

This is a pretty good movie, if you like ‘human hunting’ movies and this one has Rutger Hauer, Gary Busey, Charles S. Dutton, Ice T, John C. McGinley in it.
