    Just finished Manhunt, a Norwegian horror movie set in 1974 which is very much a flashback to the slasher movies of old. With more than a passing nod to the likes of Deliverance and Texas Chainsaw, this is a great slice of entertainment.

    The cinematography has a great '70s look and the soundtrack compliments the film perfectly.

    Worthy of a rental, this is uncomplicated but traditional horror fare.

    At the moment, this is still awaiting a R1 DVD release but the R2 version can be picked up for a very reasonable sum from Amazon UK.

    Sounds cool. Thanks for the heads up. I was always hoping they would make a Manhunt movie based on the video game.

    This movie has more in common with something like Wrong Turn than the urban setting of the video game Manhunt but it's a decent 90 minutes of entertainment. Although it shares the same name as the game, it's purely coincidental.
