Vampire Flick CLIMATE OF THE HUNTER To Release on Digital in UK





A cross between Euro-horror classic Daughters of Darkness and George Romero’s vampire tale Martin, with a rural lo-fi charm all of its own, CLIMATE OF THE HUNTER, directed by the highly prolific Oklahoma-based film-maker Mickey Reece, is set to be released on Digital download 23rd August 2021.

Dubbed the “Soderbergh of the sticks”, Reece (whose latest film Agnes premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival) has been honing his craft making films for over a decade, building up a loyal cult following who love his idiosyncratic flair, literate scripts and defiantly independent approach.

Strikingly filmed in saturated 70s-style colours, with “quality performances” (Kim Newman) from the cast (with Ben Hall recalling horror maestro John Carradine), a beautifully claustrophobic gothic atmosphere tinged with unexpected eroticism, CLIMATE OF THE HUNTER is a vampire film like no other, that both pays homage to classics of the genre while injecting its own original styling into it. Think of Dark Shadows, set in the woods, and directed by Benson and Moorhead, and you’re halfway there.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Tembo: The Badass Elephant, Yakuza Zero and Payday 2.
