I’d argue a more appropriate title would be Death Hunter: Some Guy Bitten By A Werewolf Partially Cured By An Antidote That Leaves Him With All The Abilities Of A Lycan Without Actually Transforming Into One Begins Running Around Looking Like A Chemo Patient Blade But Barely Uses His Lycan Powers Vs. Werewolves & Vampires, but that’s just me.
Death Hunter: Werewolves vs. Vampires is an American movie I had never heard of when I stumbled upon a DVD listing on a Thai website I scour every so often. At the time it didn’t even have an IMDB listing. It still doesn’t have one. Needless to say I purchased a cheap import and reviewed it over a year ago. As you can read for yourself, I was less than impressed.
Now you’ll get your chance this May to tell me if you agree or disagree with my assessment when MTI Home Video release Death Hunter: Werewolves vs. Vampires to DVD on May 24th. DVD features include closed captioning, option Spanish subtitles, 16:9 widescreen format, 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound, deleted scenes, and trailers.
When his wife is abducted by a group of blood-thirsty Vampires, John Croix is left to die in a forgotten region of the desert. It is here where an unspeakable evil exists. Now, by no choice of his own, Croix will come face-to-face with the most terrifying creatures of the night. Still a man, but possessing all the strength and power of a werewolf when the moon is out, Croix becomes a reluctant hero for mankind when he learns that his wife may still be alive. Croix sets out on a mission to rescue his wife – venturing deeper and deeper into the Vampire’s lair- in his quest to save her before she is lost to the world of the undead forever.
Death Hunter: Werewolves vs. Vampires is directed by Dustin Rikert (Alien Invasion Arizona) and stars Sam McConkey, Paulino Hemmer, Mike Lawler, and Shari Weidmann, all of whom appear in Rikert’s next film: Easy Rider: The Ride Back. You read that correctly. Below you’ll find the trailer for this low budget action-horror flick directed by the same guy who has since gone on to make an Easy Rider prequel.
