Dances with Films 2020 Horror Capsules: REPOSSESSION and HAWK AND REV VAMPIRE HUNTERS
50 year old man forced out his job tries to maintain his place in the world and ends up unleashing an ancient evil that causes death and destruction across the city.
Slow burn, slow building horror film takes a while to get going but once it does its cold and kind of dispassionate take gets under you skin, especially once the mayhem starts. My initial reaction to the film was not to pay attention to some of the early bit, it was a little too slow for me, but then suddenly I found myself drawn in watching everything unfold and waiting for the next terrible thing to happen.
This is a good little film for anyone who can be a little patient.
HAWK AND REV VAMPIRE SLAYERS
Vampire obsessed security guard hooks up with a vegan landscaper to keep their home town free of vampire.
How you react to this film is going to entirely depend upon how you react to the humor in the film. If you can go with the two nudnicks at the center and the occasionally intentionally dumb things they do you are going to have a great time. If not you’ll have an okay time
Personally I would have like this film to have been played a little straighter. If it hadn’t been as goofy as it is I would have had no reservation in recommending it. The again this is going to be the perfect film to watch with friends and drinks.
