One of the biggest divides that seems to exist between concept and approach in filmmaking is that of the B-movie ? a lark simply meant to amplify camp, kitsch and fun to delirious levels. But what seems to be more often the case is the arrival of flicks which approach the genre superficially, revelling in lazy dialogue, dull slaughter and gore and boring characters rather than applying a grindhouse feel to well though out material. While there are some attempts to spoof the well worn tropes of this type of endeavour, too often does Zombie Hunter cheat the audience, revel in its laziness and fail even to live up to the gimmicky promises plastered on the DVD case. Let me get the bluffs out of the way first, because these are not so much spoilers as they are an accurate description of events. In quick succession: Danny Trejo appears in little more than a cameo, the souped up muscle car exits the picture early on and the "clown with a chainsaw" represents little more than a blip. And in case you have no idea what this movie is about and why the heck I would bring this up, yes those were major selling points present in the advertising. What remain are inane and groan-worthy dialogue and timing and delivery that rival pre- school plays and repetition at all levels. I hate to be too harsh on Zombie Hunter because when it's all said and done it's a rather innocent endeavour, never vying for much, featuring thesps who in some cases are experiencing their debut roles and, despite its many pitfalls, is never insulting. It's all just rather wrongheaded and draining. The weird highlight for me was in lead Martin "Hunter" Copping who's growling, monotonous delivery seemed to craft a character that was just as nonchalant concerning the apocalypse then about the junk in which he was starring. Don't get me wrong, it's all very bad and very one note but his attitude made the viewing more tolerable. The rest of the cast is made of folks ? truly no offense as I'm sure I would join their ranks if I attempted to act ? who have little hope of securing steady jobs in Hollywood. The dialogue may be horrid but they make no effort to bring it to life. Even a hammy, hackneyed script can be given a weird sense of charm with the right performer delivering the lines. It's immensely clear across all fronts they are waiting on prompts and very likely gazing at cue cards. Their infuriating actions and their interactions displayed amongst one another do very little to right any wrongs. But as I iterated early on, there are clear ? and surprisingly successful ? attempts to spoof the style of film in which Zombie Hunter eventually revels. Hunter has some amusing early scenes with the undead as does the prologue (which explains the outbreak) have some charm in its own way. Coupled later on with zoom-in shots of a girl's butt, substituted for her, you know, face when running away from a threat, or a puke-off that spoofs the "grizzly discover" cliche, there are scenes that show promise. But collectively their relative occupation of the running time leaves much to be desired. In the end, Zombie Hunter is only something that could be recommend with the disclaimer it be played in the background while you and your friends shoot the *bleep* and sip some beers. The thorough distain for creativity and decision to wallow in camp rather than embrace or satirize it means this B-movie simply doesn't even get a similar grade to rival its intended stamp.

Plenty of Camp Just Not Much FunReviewed bySimon_Says_MoviesVote: 3/10
There was a time not so long ago when the independent flicks ruled the horror business but that's over. Nowadays independents aren't delivering the goods, there's nothing to spot and most of them are utterly boring. For some reason, money I guess, famous names are but on the bills to attract the fans. Here we do have Danny Trejo as Jesus but he's in it for just a few moments. This flick is full of stereotypes like the macho killer, the smart girl, the nerd, and of course the sexy chick. Here we have problem one. The so-called sexy chick do walk around scantily clad but when she's given her pole dancing she stays dressed. O sure, she shows them titties but off-camera. Big mistake. But not only that, the zombies faces are really well-done but that's it, it's only their faces that are zombie looking. The clothes they walk around aren't what they should be. And then we come to the effects used. I don't have any problem with blood flying against the lens of a camera but here we always have that effect and the blood has some purple colour. What the hell. One of those flicks were you take your remote and wanted to push the fast forward or even the eject button. And for Danny, hey man, you're going for the money or what, Rise Of The Zombies (2012) was another disaster. And if you have a close look here at Zombie Hunter you can see posters for Ozombie and Orcs, do I need to say more. A bit too much of talking and the same action (read effects) used.

This movie is incredibly bad. Danny Trejo - which is probably the reason for most people to watch this flick - is only seen in three scenes and is just doing his usual job. Being the cool, archaic guy who is looking into the camera with a grim face. And this is the best part of the movie. All the other actors are just crap. Their roles are cliches as you would expect from a movie like this, but their acting is so bad, that you cannot even take those cliches seriously. The dialogs have been written by some computer software which tries to bring the most common lines of all scripts into some order. The main character plays like he had been undergoing a lobotomy. And still he needs crappy monologues with a cheesy voice to bring his point across. Then there is the very bad CGI of those special monsters, which just look like they had been animated in the 1990s. Even the Pixar table lamp looks more realistic than they do. It seems like the director/writer/producer has seen Planet Terror and thought "I can do this too!". Unfortunately they can't. And they should have never tried. I want those 90 minutes of my life back!
