THE DAY THE FUTURE HAD TO BE STOPPED.
Sometime in the future, anyone opposed to the regime is locked up in camps to be reprogrammed; in one of them, the warden (Michael Craig) decides to arrange a game where prisoners are hunted for sport. A movie only Tarantino could love. It is another variation on The Most Dangerous Game (1932) – sadistic, absurd and technically unsatisfying. Best part is watching the bizarre hunters, including some kind of man-beast in a vest who enjoys mutilating people.
