Lacks a twist
28 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE VAMPIRE HUNTER is a rather odd episode of the MONSTERS TV series. These programmes seemed to be based around short, monster-themed stories with twists in the tale, and often had the old moral that "humans are the worst monsters". THE VAMPIRE HUNTER is different because there's no twist here, no surprises in story at any point, making it feel all a little lacklustre.

The story features an old-time vampire hunter (clearly modelled on Van Helsing), who's asked to help take out a sinister, masked vampire who looks like Lestat crossed with Hannibal Lector. Initially the vampire hunter refuses, but pretty soon he finds himself being drawn into the case regardless.

The story features a Gothic set, a little gore here and there, and a story which seems to copy the old Universal and Hammer horrors, but it can't do much on the low budget, meaning it's a bit of a lost cause.
