The Most Dangerous Game

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Creepy

We are back. Had a family emergency and was gone a few days. Now we are back to the grindstone. 

Possibly my favorite and scariest movie/concept personally is deprived of Richard Connell’s 1924 short story The Most Dangerous Game. The very real concept of humans hunting humans is the most real horror story imaginable. And unfortunately is based on true events. The concept has been brought to the screen many times over the years, and it’s easy to understand why. The basic idea of hunters deciding to challenge themselves by hunting humans is a perfectly simple set-up.

Writer/director Justin Lee is using it for his new movie. Currently filming, Lee’s The Most Dangerous Game stars Tom Berenger (Platoon), Chris ‘CT’ Tamburello,  Elissa Dowling (Girl on the Third Floor), Kevin Porter (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Edward Finlay (Justin Lee’s Final Kill), and Randy Charach.

The synopsis is as follows: Father and son are washed ashore after their steamship explodes. The men find refuge on a mysterious island where their nefarious host, Baron Von Wolf, reveals to them that the island is his game preserve where human beings serve as the ultimate hunt. Baron Von Wolf is a man who has been hiding on the island but whose sanity is on the verge of collapse.

The Most Dangerous Game is being produced by Koenig Pictures, along with Quiet On Set, Charach Productions, and Greenfield Media. Deadline reports that Ed Morrone and Michelle Ng receive producer credits, while Bill Sondheim and Randy Charach serve as executive producers.
