Synopsis: A post apocalyptic society has been overrun with zombies seeking out the last remaining human’s, who have yet to succumb to the virus that turned the majority of mankind into zombies.

Zombies are more in fashion their ever as they not only dominate the Horror movie scene of late, but they also has firmly entrenched themselves on television. It is not hard to see why such a gruesome character has gained so much appeal, when it comes to low budget filmmaking. Since the characters requires not much more then they ability to shamble around devouring flesh and brains.

Enter Zombie Hunter, the latest combatant to join in on the zombie feeding frenzy engulfing modern horror cinema. Content wise, this film takes ‘Basic’ to all new levels. The narrative is just barely enough to move one scene to the next. The characters are caricatures thus reinforcing the ‘Basic’ and not much more approach to the story at hand. And like many film’s that do things strictly by the numbers there is a predictability too the events which unfold.

The film’s visuals are merely adequate, with a lot of what appears onscreen to appear to have undergone extensive post production. The special effect’s the majority of which is done via CGI is crudely done and thus always calling attention to itself.

Performance wise don’t go into this one expecting too much as all the performances are suitably over the top enough that they make these creature characters slightly more enjoyable to watch. One performance of note Danny Trejo (Machete) playing yet another ass kicking character like the ones he has become all too well known for portraying. It should be noted that though he is put front and center on the cover. His character is not much more than a glorified cameo. Overall Zombie Hunter is a mediocre Horror film that gets to bogged down in familiar territory and ultimately never finds a voice that is all its own.

The BluRay:

Zombie Hunter comes on a 25 GB single layer BluRay. The film is presented in a 1080 progressive anamorphic widescreen. Though details do look crisp throughout. The image looks crisp, there are no issues with compression and overall this transfer does a very good job retaining this films intended look.

This release comes with two audio options, a DTS-HD 5.1 mix in English and a Dolby Digital Stereo mix in English. Dialog comes through clearly and everything sounds balanced. The more action oriented moments sounds appropriately robust and the more ambient aspects of the soundtrack are well represented.

Extras for this release are limited to a trailer for the film and trailers for other films also available from Well Go USA. Overall Zombie Hunter gets a strong audio / video presentation from Well Go USA.

Note: This film is also being released by Well Go USA on DVD.
