Indie Movie Review – Climate of the Hunter

Read Time:2 Minute, 15 Second

Vampire movies can be a lot of fun.  Some of my favorites include Dracula (Bela Lugosi version), Twilight, 30 Days of Night, the underrated Vampire Academy, and What We Do in the Shadows.  You can read my review of Fright Night here.  Climate of the Hunter is an indie take on the vampire story.  It’s a satisfying character study with lots of dialogue.  Two sisters reunite with an old friend they haven’t seen in twenty years.  The catch is, he may be a vampire.

What’s good about Climate of the Hunter

Two words: Ben Hall.  His performance makes the entire film.  He is charming, sophisticated, romantic, and tortured.  He’s almost hypnotic.  When he’s on screen you can’t look away.  I can’t wait to see him in Minari, which opens later this year.

Brilliant idea with great information

I’ve been using RunPee for a few years now and it’s basically a requirement of going to the movies for me. The best part of course are the “pee times” that give you cues, synopses and times for when you can pee without missing the most important parts of the movie. There is also information about the credits- length, extras and if there are any extra scenes at the wayyy end. Super helpful to just know that it is or isn’t worth staying. There is a timer function that will buzz your phone when it’s a good time to pee. I also appreciate that the app is very conscientious about it being an app you use in a theater- dark background, all silent alarms etc. I will always enjoy the experience of the theater even if I could watch things at home- but I’ve even used it at home to check for things like after credit scenes or other information too.

The movie has great dialogue, much of it going to Hall.  Several of the indie films I’ve reviewed have surface level, on-the-nose dialogue.  Climate of the Hunter actually has subtext.

Sheridan McMichael gives a memorable performance as Hall’s cruel son Percy.  McMichael gives off some majorly creepy vibes and may be the next Crispin Glover.

What Climate of the Hunter could do better

Please note that the following are minor quibbles.  Overall, I found the movie to be highly enjoyable.

There are elements of the film that seem at odds with its dramatic tone.  For instance, one of the clues that Hall’s character might be a vampire is that he coughs up a tampon.  It feels like a gross-out comedy moment thrown into a drama.  There’s also a Wes Anderson type thing that happens with every meal.  A twee voiceover announces the menu.  I think it’s supposed to be comic.  Some of the meals appear to be things invented solely for the film.  Maybe they’re trying to make a point that everyone eats disgusting things, not just vampires.

There are characters who are underused.  Their storylines don’t really wrap up at the end.

This movie does not bring the scares.  It’s more of a thriller or a supernatural drama than a straight up horror film.  This may be a disappointment to horror fans.

Final Thoughts on Climate of the Hunter

This is one I would definitely watch again.  Hall’s effortless portrayal feels lived-in.  Fans of character actor Ray Wise (who was recently featured in Beast Mode) will probably enjoy Hall’s performance.
