So apparently there are people in the world whose idea of a good time is to go out and kill something. Guns, knives, crossbows, spears, hooks, traps—it’s all good, as long as an animal ends up dead.

I don’t get it.

Mind you…I come closer to getting it when the animal they’re hunting is selfish, greedy, violent, destructive and just plain ANNOYING.

So join us as we examine some films that put Homo sapiens in the cross-hairs…

The Unknown Movies  Savages (1974) The movie is leanly written. The running time is only seventy-two minutes in length, so that there aren’t any moments that could be considered blatant padding; for example, the two lead characters first meet and start their hunting trip in the first five minutes of the movie. Another interesting aspect of the teleplay is that it doesn’t end the way that you may expect. You probably know how most variations of The Most Dangerous Game end, so I won’t get into that. What’s interesting about this version is that where you think it would end isn’t the ending – more than twenty minutes is still left in the running time. I won’t spoil things by telling you what happens in those last twenty minutes, except that it places a new and troubling challenge on the protagonist.
