The G4 Films Epictober Film Festival may be the greatest thing ever. Or at least, the greatest thing ever this week. Taking three classic games and giving them the horror movie treatment, the short film series opens with “The Hunt,” a bloody riff on Nintendo’s Duck Hunt.
Who among us didn’t fire off a few bursts of invisible Zapper fire at the Duck Hunt dog after he snickered at our poor aim? It’s for that director Sam Balcomb created “The Hunt.” Who’s laughing now dog?
G4 will follow “The Hunt” with two more films including tomorrow’s “Kart Driver” and Wednesday’s “The Birds of Anger.”
