Hell Hunters
11 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Horror and comedy are just always a good mix, there is always something satisfying about laughing at people who react and act in the most threatening and unusual circumstances. This is one of my personal favorite TV shows that I felt had enough fire which created a bonfire. This show is almost a dream come true for me as I've always wanted a TV comedy in the horror medium which I rarely see on TV.

The production value I think is really good, it was done on a modest to low budget but they really take things further making the quality on par. Mainly in some of the gore effects which I think are really good because their practical and almost jaw dropping since most people in the show die in the most brutal, unusual, and bizarrely hilarious manner. Like being eaten by a cake monster (not kidding) or even exploding from a hair dryer (as I said not kidding) and so on. Why the hell no one would leave Crawley High from incidents like that is anyone's guess, let alone why would any student be stupid enough to read from the book out loud, doesn't the content ring any alarms.

I really love the heavy metal soundtrack, I think it's really fun and really fits this show. The plots are fun their always something different, bizarre. My favorite are the two musical episodes with one reoccurring villain in the show "The Phantom". There is a revolving plot throughout the show that intriguingly develops and does add up to something. There are plenty of homage jokes which are cleverly suttle but a love later to the horror genre, most notably to the "Evil Dead" franchise like Curtis's bionic arm an homage to the character Ash and the book itself the Necromomican.

Though I feel what really drives this show are it's characters and the dialog they deliver. The dialog is just fraking hilarious, some of what the characters say can be really clever or even unusual or delishiously bad at some points,which could make you groan and laugh at the same time; but all the same hit all the right cords in laughter. Let alone the ensemble play off each other well their basically a Scooby Doo like gang, as they each try to solve the mystery of the book as well as any ongoing mystery that comes their way.

I really like all four of the characters, I like that the actors and actresses looked more like regular people and not supermodels which is great, it really gives the show a slightly down to earth sensibility. But each of them were interesting and develop a little. These are all slightly flawed characters whom would be the last people you'd call on to save the world and yet they manage to do it, whether they want to or not.

Todd Smith (Alex House) is great, he's not a kid that's with the incroud, he's a heavy metal fan, not the brightest bulb and incredibly naive and immature but manages to have enough guts to do what he must.

Jenny Kolusky (Maggie Castle) is also great and I think she's kinda hot. From the dark goth like wear she's most of the time in which is a turn on for me, what can I say I love the color black. She's constantly rebellious, bitchy but in a good way, but deep down by her nature she's a real softy.

Curtis (Bill Turbull) his character is my second favorite just about the same as Todd though he might be an even dimmer bulb. Yet, he's actually a lovable person and gets the job done. I really like that robotic arm because it's practically a swiss army knife due to the multiple capabilities it possesses I still wonder what more it does. .

Hannah (Melanie Leishman) whom is my favorite character of the show and kinda cute. She sort of like Thema from "Scooby Doo" a nerd that is highly intelligent. She's inventive always doing something, shy, an introvert, but is always full of surprises making her anything but boring. Despite a strong head, I felt her heart was always stronger, her character really has enough courage to act upon he instincts and feelings whenever the urge comes. That's also a turn on, probably because it's seeing a person overcome whatever holds her back and by doing that the best part of them is seen.

The only problems I have with the show are I don't always like the way the team wins, in most episodes it just seems to always be pure luck. But then again this group really aren't trained warriors and this show is more of a comedy than an actioneer so I can't hold it totally against the show. But my main problem is the fact that it didn't get a season 3, which I felt was really too bad I really did feel the show had potential to go further. It would be awesome if Boom Studios or IDW think of continuing it in comic book form, they did it for many other movies and TV shows so why not this one, just a thought.

Overall, "Todd and the Book of Pure Evil" is devilish fun.

Rating: 3 and a half stars
