Shawn Linden is the writer and director of the new horror, thriller Hunter Hunter. This horrific story shows you a different kind of predators in the wilderness you don’t want to miss.
HUNTER HUNTER follows a family living in the remote wilderness earning a living as fur trappers. Joseph Mersault (Devon Sawa, ‘Final Destination’), his wife Anne (Camille Sullivan, ‘The Disappearance’), and their daughter Renée (Summer H. Howell, ‘Clouds’) struggle to make ends meet and think their traps are being hunted by the return of a rogue wolf. Determined to catch the predator in the act, Joseph leaves his family behind to track the wolf. Anne and Renée grow increasingly anxious during Joseph’s prolonged absence and struggle to survive without him. When they hear a strange noise outside their cabin, Anne hopes it is Joseph but instead finds a man named Lou (Nick Stahl, ‘Sin City’), who has been severely injured and left for dead. The longer Lou stays and Joseph is away, the more paranoid Anne becomes, and the idea of a mysterious predator in the woods slowly becomes a threat much closer to home.
