Philip "HAWK" Hawkins doesn't just dream about killing vampires - He eats, sleeps, drinks and freakin' breaths it. After getting kicked out the Army for staking a fellow soldier with a blunt two by four, Hawk almost dies of boredom working as a night security guard in his hometown of Santa Muerte, California - USA. Just when it looks like all Hawk's options in life have expired, filthy blood-sucking vampires appear and of course - Nobody freakin' believes him. With his back up against the wall, his sweaty Karate Kid headband on and hordes of murderous vampires closing in, Hawk enlists the help of the one person who kind of believes him - Revson "REV" McCabe, a dimwitted, vegan-pacifist groundskeeper. Together they join forces to save the whole entire freakin' world. Well, at least their hometown anyway. (feature - horror/comedy)Written by
Well, based from the movie's cover and the synopsis, I thought this movie to either be a fun one or one that totally would flop. So as I sat down to watch the 2020 movie "Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers" it could go either way for me.
And I will say that "Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers" luckily turned out for the better, as this was a funny and enjoyable movie. Sure, while it is not up to par with movies such as "Shaun of the Dead" or "Lesbian Vampire Killers", it certainly is a watchable and funny movie. However, it should be said that this particular movie is somewhat of an acquired taste, so I doubt it will prove as widely embraceable as "Shaun of the Dead" or "Lesbian Vampire Killers". However, I did enjoy "Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers", no doubt about it.
The storyline, as written by writer and director Ryan Barton-Grimley, was a good one, and it proved to be a story that had a lot of interesting aspects to it. The movie was a good mixture of light horror with a heavy doze of comedy to it. And the wonderful characters, especially Hawk (played by Ryan Barton-Grimley) and Rev (played by Ari Schneider) were just wonderful characters and were portrayed nicely by the two actors.
"Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers" is not a movie that is relying heavily on special effects or CGI, so you should not sit down to watch this movie with the intention or hopes of being in for a CGI fest.
I found this movie to be a nice surprise and an entertaining movie, and if you have the chance to sit down to watch it, I would recommend that you do so. My rating of "Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers" lands on a six out of ten stars.
