      David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...it doesn't take long for the movie to sink into irrelevance... Rated: 2/4 Sep 30, 2006 Full Review Scott Weinberg DVDTalk.com Stolen plots, stupid stories, and silly monsters I can take, but there's no damn reason a 75-minute movie should feel like 275.

      Audience Member Though Sean Patrick Flanery offers a competent performance as the lead, but this is the only thing the film does right. The writing, pacing, casting tone, and overall quality of the movie suffers from either a lack of directing ability or funding (or perhaps both). Drago (though a talented actor) is entirely phoning it in on top of being a complete miscast. Entirely forgettable and not worth a look even for "bad supernatural movie night" with your friends. Instead, the very fun and campy John Carpenter's Vampires is loads of fun. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad if you like a vampire movies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Demon Hunter (Scott Ziehl, 2005) Another of those "Stephen J. Cannell, what were you thinking?" direct-to-video horror cheapies Cannell churned out like he was trying to be Roger Corman during the middle of the last decade (one of which, The Garden, actually found its way into theatres, presumably by accident). If you've seen any of Cannell's more cheaply-produced TV shows, you've got a basic idea of what you're going to get from these movies, save that there will of course be more nudity and more graphic violence. Of those I've seen, Demon Hunter is actually the most satisfying on a number of levels, which probably has to do with the quality of its cast. Plot: Jake Greyman (The Boondock Saints' Sean Patrick Flanery), a half-human, half-demon who makes his living as a demon hunter for Mother Church, is hired by the somewhat paranoid Cardinal White (House of 1000 Corpses' William Bassett) to figure out whether a demon is behind certain recent events. To keep him in line (well, as much as possible), he's assigned a chaperone, Sister Sarah (Baby Blues' Colleen Porch). Needless to say, the two of them find out pretty quickly that yes, the demon Asmodeus (The Untouchables' Billy Drago) and his sexy henchman, a nameless succubus (Something's Gotta Give's Tania Deighton), are behind etc. Ultimately, it seems, the demons are after Nancy Lebinowitz (The Hard Easy's Nancy Yoon), the widow of a billionaire arms dealer, and the demon hunters have to figure out why. The draw here is a surprisingly solid cast of B actors; it's likely you're a fan of at least someone in this cast (I watched it because I adore Colleen Porch ever since Baby Blues). It helps that the director at least knowsn his way around a camera; Ziehl does low-budget genre work (he's best known for the Rob Lowe vehicle Proximity back in the nineties), but he does it pretty well. Both of these things help balance out the kind of horrific script turned in by stuntman Mitch Gould (recently seen jumping around, falling, etc. in Twilight); both actors and director do the best they can given the material, and in the end, they come up with a watchable movie. It's not great cinema, to be sure, but I've seen a lot worse. ** 1/2 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member I can't remember alot about this film, as i've only seen it the once, for Sean Patrick Flanery. I do remember that i really liked it, as it had a really good story. I need to see it again to truly remember it all and give it a better review. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked the premise of the story but it was poorly executed. Awful dialogue, some poor acting moments, and awkward music choices. The fight scenes weren't completely terrible though. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member started well and went down hill.
