The Most Dangerous Game

Pre-Code Horror The Most Dangerous Game Joining Masters Of Cinema Family

Classic horror from the makers of King Kong, starring Joel McCrea, Fay Wray and Leslie Banks

The ‘classics’ are not always those films you’ll easily recognise. Eureka Entertainment understand this and October they’ll introduce Cooper and Schoedsack’s The Most Dangerous Game to their Masters Of Cinema family.

The 1932 American pre-code horror film starring Joel McCrea and Fay Wray, in celebration of the film’s 90th Anniversary. Coming to Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK, presented from a 2K restored scan. Available from October.

Based upon the ever-popular short story by Richard Connell, The Most Dangerous Game remains a hugely influential masterpiece 90 years after its release.

Big game hunter, Bob Rainsford (Joel McCrea), barely survives a shipwreck in shark infested waters and washes ashore on the private island of the sinister Count Zaroff (played with a delightful zeal by Leslie Banks). Zaroff fancies himself an accomplished hunter also —only his preferred quarry, is man!

Taking full advantage of the lavish jungle sets created for King Kong; The Most Dangerous Game was filmed at night after filming for Kong had concluded for the day, with many cast and crew pulling double duty on both productions. After 90 years, it is still a thrilling piece of filmmaking – filled with stunning production designs, wonderful optical effects, and—of course—thrilling action.
