The DVD says:
One of the most shocking and talked about horror films of the last decade is unleashed in all its bloody, visceral UNCUT glory. Summer 1974: and four friends have planned a weekend hiking and camping in the remote forests of northern Europe. At an innocuous truck stop they pick up an anxious-looking hitchhiker. Almost instantly, it’s clear that she’s more than simply unnerved. She’s terrified of something… or someone. Without warning the group is brutally ambushed and when the survivors come too, deep in the secluded forest, miles from civilisation the first thing they hear is the sound of a hunting horn. Their nightmare is far from over. In fact it has only just begun. The game is on and they realise to their absolute horror that they are the prey…

Manhunt is apparently inspired by the video game of the same name, but doesn't have that much direct relationship to it other than it's lust for pure unadulterated violence. A Norwegian film originally named 'Rovdyr' in it's home country, the director, Patrik Syversen, has made a great film for fans of pure stalker horror. The movie reminded me of some of the great slasher flicks like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Friday the 13th movie series and provides some fantastic scenes of shocking brutality. My only negative on the film is the draining of most of the colour from the picture, which, whilst fitting with the 1974 setting, leaves the movie looking slightly lifeless. This DVD release has a great film transfer and sound quality, but lacks any extras, which is why I can't give it the full 5 bloody heart rating. Certainly one of the best non-english speaking horror films of recent years, you'll get so engrossed that you'll forget you're reading subtitles.
