Madman proudly presents the haunting and beautiful Australian drama, THE HUNTER – available from today on DVD ($34.95srp), Blu-Ray ($39.95srp) and digital platforms.
Academy Award® nominee Willem Dafoe (SPIDER MAN, PLATOON) stars as Martin David, a globe-trotting mercenary hired by a mysterious biotech company to track down the last remaining Tasmanian Tiger – rumoured to be alive and well deep within the Tasmanian wilderness.
Under the wing of Jack Mindy (Sam Neill, THE PIANO), Martin lodges at the home of Lucy (Frances O’Connor, AI: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE), who is grief-stricken after the disappearance of her activist husband, Jarrah, and struggling to care for her two children, Sass and Bike. As Martin embarks upon his clandestine mountain search for the elusive creature, he finds himself unexpectedly drawn to the troubled family and trying to resolve the mysteries hidden within the treacherous landscape.
A powerful psychological drama set against the striking beauty of the Tasmanian wilderness, THE HUNTER released to critical acclaim in October, 2011 – grossing over $1 million at the Australian box office. THE HUNTER’s success also continues abroad, where it has topped the U.S. iTunes trailer charts, been selected to headline SXSW 2012 in March, and recently closed the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Additional special features include an Audio Commentary with director Daniel Nettheim and producer Vincent Sheehan, ‘The Soundtrack’, Portrait Galleries, Deleted Scenes with Optional Audio Commentary and the ATOM Study Guide.
