“Compliance” and “Z for Zachariah” director Craig Zobel re-teams with “The Leftovers” writers Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse for this Blumhouse feature which is less the teen horror they’re known for and more a “Battle Royale”-style thriller in which violent hunters pursue a group of blue-collar types for sport. A lot of specifics about it are under wraps, and the cast is made up entirely of unknowns, but it’s already set for a Fall release and will likely be done for cheap which means it could well push some boundaries.
Inspired by real-life events, the series tells the story of a group known as the Hunters living in New York City in 1977.
They discover that hundreds of former high-ranking Nazi officials are living among them and conspiring to create the Fourth Reich in the U.S. The group then sets out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.
