The "new" movie, THE HUNT has had a challenging roll out. After receiving national criticism in Sept 2019 in light of national tragedies, it was pushed back to March of this year, only to have its theatrical launch stymied by COVID-19 closures. BUT NBCUniversal has put the film out for VOD streaming in the comfort of our homes and we’ve got opinions on whether this political manhunt thriller is perfect for your quarantine movie viewing pleasure. So, have listen in between hand washings.
