If you have watched the TV series 'Dare Me,' you'll notice that 'We Hunt Together' has the same vibe and level of excellence when it comes to cinematography. The trailer showcases an upcoming thriller with "A couple of the run" as two investigators try to find the killers who murder their victims with a side of blatant humiliation. Two detectives, learning how to work together themselves try to comprehend the minds of two conniving killers — a game of cat and mouse as the synopsis says. Do some people just have a "darkness inside them" or are they just plain psychotic?
