Demon Hunter: Award-winning Irish indie action horror film comes to VOD on August 15th
A bulk of inide movies attempting to go for high gloss action stumble because they simply don’t have the resources or technical skill to sell it like the big dogs do. But writer-director Zoe Kavanagh’s “genre hugging” (The Irish Times) horror-actioner Demon Hunter navigates its financial limitations with kinetic editing and wild bouts of berserk battling. It’s a really taught little film and definitely evidence of Kavanagh’s vision and talent.
The award-winning Irish blow-out, which combines elements of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Underworld and Evil Dead is a frenetic slice n’ dice that has taken home more than 15 awards, including Best Director at the Fright Fest International Film Festival.
Synopsis: After she is captured by police for questioning in the slaying of a man she claimed was a demon, Taryn Barker must prove her innocence, and the existence of demons. But when a cult captures the daughter of one of the detectives on the case, the police must trust, and unleash, this warrior on the Satantic group who are intent on bringing an ancient evil force into the world.
Niamh Hogan, Alan Talbot, Kevin O’Malley, Nic Furlong, Sarah Tapes Jenkinson, and Margarita Grillis star in a film that “keeps on the gas until the credits roll” (Beyond the Gore).
Demon Hunter is available on digital/VOD August 15th from Wild Eye Releasing with a DVD release to follow. Check out the fiery, sword-swingin’ trailer below!
