Editorial Reviews

Somewhere deep in the South American rain forest, an elite commando team led by lifelong friends Hawk (Casper Van Dien of STARSHIP TROOPERS) and Grieves (Kevin Grevioux of UNDERWORLD) are attacked by a brutal superhuman force: A flesh-ripping, blood-guzzling clan that hunts in packs, strikes in daylight, and won’t stay dead. The U.S. military calls them ‘a tribal anomaly’, but are they actually a horrific race of pre-Incan vampires? Six months later, Hawk must return to the jungle on a deadly new mission, this time to rescue his tough-but- beautiful scientist ex-wife (Jennifer O’Dell of THE LOST WORLD) and destroy his best friend, who may now be leading a tactical assault squad of immortal bloodsuckers out of their caves and into our world. Ray Park (X-MEN, Darth Maul of THE PHANTOM MENACE), Tony Plana (24), Danny Trejo (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS) and Lynda Carter (WONDER WOMAN) co-star in this SciFi Original from Kevin VanHook, the writer/producer/director of VOODOO MOON and THE FALLEN ONES.

BEING AN AVID HORROR FAN I BOUGHT THIS MOVIE NOT EXPECTING TOO MUCH AND I

GOT WHAT I EXPECTED. CASPER VAN DIEN SEEMED UNABLE TO SHOW MUCH INTEREST IN

HIS ROLE BUT, HE WAS NOT ALONE. I GAVE THE MOVIE TWO STARS BECAUSE OF THE

TWO OUTSTANDING CHARACTER ACTORS IN THIS MOVIE, TONY PLANA, AND DANNY TREJO

WHO ARE ALWAYS WORTH WATCHING EVEN IN A PLASTIC MOVIE LIKE THIS. SAVE YOUR

MONEY THERE ARE A LOT BETTER B GRADE MOVIES OUT THERE. I'M LEFT WONDERING

HOW THIS ONE GOT RELEASED.

Slayer (Kevin VanHook, 2006)

The most intriguing thing about Slayer is that it contains the least convincing fight scene since Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter. When that's the best thing you can say about a movie, it's pretty bad.

I realize that most of the top cast in here are pretty well-known for being bad actors. But was Lynda Carter always this awful, or does she just turn in the worst performance of her career? I don't think I've seen her in anything but commercials for twenty-five years or so, so I really can't remember. The horrible thing is that the rest of the cast is so bad that Carter's Razzy-worthy performance is about par for the course. In fact, the majority of this cast is so bad that they almost make the worthless Casper van Dien look good. Kevin Grevioux may actually be the worst actor I have ever seen in a movie. He desperately wants to be Ken Foree. He fails in every respect.

As for what passes for a plot in this farce: an army unit, headed by Hawk (van Dien) and Grieves (Grevioux), somewhere in the remote jungles of South America, is attacked by a band of vampires-- ninja vampires, no less-- who aren't afraid of daylight. (Daywalking is the only change to traditional vampire lore here, despite one vampire's assertion during the film that the "fairy tales" got almost nothing right.) Six months later, nearby villages are being raided, and the army's sending in fresh troops. Grieves is already in South America, and Hawk is on the next boat. You know what happens.

About the only reason to watch this movie is that Danny Trejo has a small role in it, and is his usual self. Otherwise, this movie is trite, badly-acted, badly-scripted, with little attention paid to such things as cinematography, set design, or costuming.

I BOUGHT THIS GARBAGE FOR VERONICA. STUPID ME, I THOUGHT SHE WAS REALLY A BLONDE FROM HER DAYS IN "THE LOST WORLD". BUT SHE ISN'T. JUST ANOTHER FAKE. AND SHE WASN'T AS PROMINENT. AND THE ...PARDON THE EXPRESSION, "PLOT". IT'S ABOUT VAMPIRES IN THE SOUTH AMERICAN JUNGLE! THERE IS NOT MUCH ACTION, & WHAT THERE IS IS LAUGHABLE. ALTOGETHER, A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME.

SLAYER is another one of those SCIFI CHANNEL's made for tv movies that's not really awful but offers nothing spectacular either. Notice how vampires in the new millennium can run around in the daylight, don't mind crosses and have also become cannibalistic..a nip in the neck isn't enough. This time the vampires have been hiding out in the Amazon rain forest but now that man is depleting the forests, they have to come out and eat humans for food. The typical rag-tag military group led by the dramatically challenged Casper van Dien try to rein in the vampires which now include van Dien's lifelong friend, an actor whose voice is lower than the Luray Caverns.

It's all pretty harmless and not very scary, but there's lots of gore and hissing vampires.

Fans of the genre will be pleased, but not overwhelmed.

Ray Parks role was not very big but he did get to show off his amazing skills.
It almost seems like Casper Van Dien was the only one that was allowed to be a good actor.
Everyone else was awful. Even my childhood favorite Linda Carter. (please forgive me Ms. Carter)
But hey, not to bad for a first time filmmaker

In the jungles of South America, an elite combat team is nearly wiped out by a tribe of superhuman creatures. The 2 survivors are old friends. Hawk and Grieves think that what they saw that day were vampires. During an expedition, Hawk's ex-wife is caught up in the chaos. Hawk and his team go out there once again to find her. They encounter a fate more terrible than the first visit.

This movie is average in every aspect. Nothing at all outstanding happens here. The acting, special effects and story are all middle of the road. Actually, I'm probably being generous when I say all that. Despite the mediocrity of Slayer, I enjoyed it. The action and comedic presentation (probably not intentional) of the violence kept me entertained. I think that if you're interested in this movie, you should rent it. You may not want it taking up space at your house.

As a Casper Van Dien fan, i was able to get a small amount of enjoyment out of this, but it's pretty sloppy. It's as if the director were making scenes, instead of a coherent movie. So, what you get are bits and pieces of a story, but nothing you can enjoy as a whole. Loved the cave setting for the climax, but the jungle scenes are so similar, it looks as if they were all filmed on one acre of land.
