In The Hunt, Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen… for a very specific purpose…

In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, a bunch of elites gathers for the very first time at a remote Manor House to hunt humans for sport. But the elites’ master plan is about to be derailed because one of the hunted, Crystal (Betty Gilpin), knows The Hunters’ game better than they do. She turns the tables on the killers, picking them off, one by one, as she makes her way toward the mysterious woman (Hilary Swank) at the center of it all.

The Hunt is written by Damon Lindelof and his fellow Leftovers’ collaborator Nick Cuse and is directed by Craig Zobel (Z for Zachariah, The Leftovers). Blum produces for his Blumhouse Productions alongside Lindelof with Zobel, Cuse and Steven R. Molen serving as executive producers.

What you can’t see can hurt you. Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, The Handmaid’s Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid). But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) seemingly commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax.

When a series of eerie coincidences begin to turn lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

Produced by Jason Blum and Kylie du Fresne, The Invisible Man is executive produced by Beatriz Sequeira, Charles Layton, Rosemary Blight, Ben Grant, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno and Whannell himself.
