"Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don't know where they are -- or how they got there. In the shadow of a dark internet conspiracy theory, ruthless elitists gather at a remote location to hunt humans for sport. But their master plan is about to be derailed when one of the hunted, Crystal, turns the tables on her pursuers.Written by

In the 40th minute prior to the grenade going off in Peter's crotch, one sees at least five soldiers behind him running away. As the grenade goes off, most of those soldiers unexplainedly disappear (they were not exploded as one sees Peter's body explode but not theirs). See more »

Good fun and brave levels of dark humor
It had similar vibes of Ready Or Not, ideas and themes of The Purge and the unpredictability of The Cabin In The Woods.
The first act is pretty strong and it really throws you off course as to who you think the main protagonist will be. That just set me up nicely for not having a clue of where it could go next.
It moves at a good pace, the violence is brutal but cartoonish in its execution, the gags are solid and go down brave but potentially dangerous routes. I was fine with them. But it wouldn't surprise if some might offend the SJW cinema-goers.
While the end was the most formulaic part of the film. The journey getting there made it a worthwhile watch.
