Cobbled together from other better movies, the trajectory of the film's screenplay looks a little something like this:
1) Starts as a post-apocalyptic sojourn reminiscent of the "Mad Max" genre of filmmaking.
2) Settles into a standard zombie survival drama as a group band together in isolation.
3) A brief foray into an abandoned town that feels like an exploitation slasher from the seventies.
4) A big finale straight out of a sixties sci-fi with creatures that are inspired by Ray Harryhausen.
After a rather vague and uninspired intro meant to explain the zombie outbreak, the movie fast forwards to a time where the world has been completely overrun by the undead menace. We meet out hunter hero, Martin Copping, as a loner surviving the barren desert country.Read more ›

If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment.

Ok. It’s the Apocalypse, and all of this has apparently happened as the result of some street drug that turned its users and abusers in creatures not unlike zombies. Into this wasteland comes Hunter (played with some hard-boiled delight by Martin Copping), and he’s having a really bad day. It started out fine, but then he took a bullet to the arm, crashed his car, and was spit on my some backwoods Looney Tunes dragging him back to his compound. If what’s left of the crumbling society isn’t careful, Hunter’s likely to rise up and prove he’s the last thing to be feared on planet Earth!Read more ›
Part of the film is shot as a grainy grindhouse, which worked well, but its use was haphazard and ended quickly. The music was grindhouse metal and the blood splatters on the camera lens. Fast Lane Debbie(Jade Regier) who is a better pole dancer than nurse, teases us with her overt sexuality. There was a WTF CG creature, apparently a new unquestionable plot must since a "Residence Evil" sequel did it.
The film had some good scenes and oozed with potential. If you are going to do a grindhouse film, you must go all the way to appeal to a grindhouse audience. This is a watered down film. Okay as a rental.
Parental Guide: No f-bombs that I recall. No nudity. Sex scene inspired by Natile Portman (keeps bra on)...seriously? In a Trejo grindhouse?
Though this is yet another end-of-the-world zombie movie, it shares more in common with the Resident Evil franchise than anything else, complete with inexplicable morphed zombie creatures. Our title character is a gravelly-voiced narrator with something of a Road Warrior complex, mowing down zombies as he travels a solitary path. When he comes across a group of survivors, they band together to fight the zombies and whatever other elements of danger there are. This includes a man dressed as a clown who enjoys killing anything that crosses his path, zombie or human.
Imagine "The Walking Dead" without any of the smart storylines, good special effects or characters you care about, and you would still have a zombie tale that is ten times more engaging than this film. More than anything, Zombie Hunter feels as though it wants to be a Robert Rodriguez movie, if only for the mere fact that Trejo has a few scenes to do what he has done moderately well for at least a decade.
