A recent Universal movie which seemed to be “cursed” was THE HUNT (90 mins., 2020, R), a Blumhouse production that received an awful lot of controversy for its provocative story of wealthy liberal females hunting “red staters”. Betty Gilpin and Hilary Swank play two women at opposite ends of the spectrum in a fast-moving and occasionally funny film that wasn’t worth all the attention (is it ever?) but at least isn’t as bad as its rep would lead one to believe. Universal’s now-available Blu-Ray — [was] released the same time as the recent riots, ironic since the theatrical release had to be scuttled due to political squabbling...

Although the initial 2019 release of the film was canceled due to political infighting, the theatrical release was rescheduled for 13 March 2020. And the film did open in some theaters on that date, before being shut down due to the pandemic and being shuttled onto on-demand cable services. Just further evidence of the film being cursed.
