|Zombie Hunter (2013)|
|Writers:||K. King and Kurt Knight|
|Starring:||Martin Copping, Danny Trejo, and Clare Niederpruem|
As is expected of any moderately budgeted independent horror movie, there are some sequences that feature less-than-great CGI. Zombie Hunter at least does something of interest with its CG, as it creates a league of monsters who are even more interesting than the zombie creatures. Looking like a cross between the Tyrants from the Resident Evil franchise, as well as the Super Mutants from the Fallout series of video games, these monsters definitely give the movie some sort of flair. If nothing else, the filmmakers are certainly creative in the way they design their creature effects. The movie, overall, has a very nice look and polish to it. The director tries to infuse a very modern style that is incorporated into the film in small doses. There is an affection for classic technology during the movie, with cassette tapes being plentiful throughout, as well as an affinity for the garish neon colors that defined the 1980s. Although the movie is not directly set in the past, it looks to blend an 80s aesthetic with our modern vision of the post-apocalyptic genre. Just take a picture of a desert wasteland, incorporate some modern monstrosities, throw in a ton of Maxxel cassette tapes, lots of neon pink, and then finish it off with a soundtrack that features a great deal of dubstep, and you have Zombie Hunter.
