2 weeks to complete a bucket list, and kill some vampires!
7 March 2016 | by martyneverettSee all my reviews

The Slayers is a comedy horror by writer/director/actor John Williams. It follows on from his debut film, The Mothertown.

The film centres around 2 religious cult members who take it on themselves to rebel and enjoy their last 2 weeks on earth after compiling a bucket list.. Throw into the mix a run in with vampires, a camper-van and a few vampire hunters, who work alone, and you have the ingredients for a very enjoyable and genuinely funny, independent movie.

The gore is set to minimum in this outing, and the laughs to maximum. The 2 main characters, Nigel and Job, are superb and work well together. In particular, I enjoyed Darren McAree's portrayal of Nigel, who, for me, was the stand out character/actor within the film. His corny 'Dad jokes' and one liners set against the dim-witted deadpan of Job worked really well.

This is a B-movie in production values only, with a superbly well-written script, original ideas and well thought out storyboard.

The only downside to this film, is that it won't reach the widespread audience it deserves. John Williams should take heed from the likes of Peter Jackson, who started in similar surroundings, and enjoy the rightful praise his work merits. I look forward to watching his next instalment.
