Zombie Hunter is set in a post-apocalyptic Zombie wasteland caused by the mysterious street drug "Natas". We follow one man who has nothing left other than a beat up Camaro and a trunk full of guns and booze. He runs down Flesh Eaters, hunting for sport and redemption, while also running from his past. After crashing into a small group of survivors, who are running low on resources, he decides to lend a hand. But a surprise attack by the Flesh Eaters forces them on the run and puts the Hunter's skills to the test.Written by

Early in the movie, Hunter stops to gas up. While checking inside the gas station, he encounters several zombies. He is armed with a double barrel shot gun. The first time he fires, we hear the sound of an empty shell hitting the ground. A double barrel shotgun does not automatically eject empty shells. He then deals with several zombies in a back room. He shoots several times, and after each shot, we hear the distinctive sound of a pump shotgun. See more »
This movie was like watching a bad movie spawned from the "Borderlands" games mixed with elements blatantly stolen from the "Resident Evil" universe.
The storyline was fairly straight forward, and anyone who have seen just a single zombie movie should be familiar with the essentials of the storyline here as well. A lone stranger ends up with a small group of survivors in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.
The dialog in the movie was just horrible. It was so corny and bad, that there were times when you sit there curling your toes in disbelief.
Which leads us to the characters. Wow, are you kidding me? What a bunch of generic, stereotypical and totally irrelevant characters can you manage to put into one movie? Now, I am not saying that the people acting and portraying the characters were doing bad jobs, but the characters themselves were parodies on themselves and everything in the zombie genre. It was just an atrocity to witness.
The zombies, well they were your standard low budget movie zombies; shredded clothing and usually mangled faces. Yet somehow the necks, ears and hands were also spotless and never showed a sign of decay or damage. It is the classic low budget mistake to make. And sure enough, here it was. And what was going on with the hybrid mix of Nemesis and the licker creatures from "Resident Evil". I was ready to get up and find something else to watch when I saw these. It was just laughable.
For some reason, then the blood in this movie was purple, and it always had to spray directly on the camera. It was annoying and tiring to look at, and it got old really fast. Purple blood, sure, why not...
Without the risk of sounding sarcastic, wait, that is exactly what I am trying to do here, then the not-so-subtle advertising for their other movies put on display in the movie was really just fantastic. Watch the movie, and you will know it immediately when you get to that scene. Way to go Arrowstorm Entertainment...
If you are credited as 'Sexy Zombie' in a movie, then you know everything is not right here.
Yet, there is something to this movie that makes you stick around to the end, even though it is campy, cheesy and have low budget written all over it. However, I can honestly say that this movie is the type of movie that you watch once and never again. As much as I love everything zombie, then "Zombie Hunter" just didn't have that much to offer.
