Indie Movie Review – Hawk & Rev: Vampire Slayers

Read Time:2 Minute, 13 Second
They’re not Buffy. But they sort of have a plan.

I’ll be honest. As soon as this started running I thought, “here we go… another low budget, low talent, low quality bit of nonsense,” but I was pleasantly surprised!

I’m sure that it is a low budget piece. The sets seem to be back alleys, back gardens, and public roads. The cast are all new faces. To me anyway; apologies if that’s down to my lack of exposure, as they’ve all racked up a fair few IMDb entries each.

Now, I’m not sure how old the characters are supposed to be, but they sound a lot younger than they are; the dialogue rings of late teens/early twenties, but the faces say thirties or forties. It could be down to me not being up to date with current colloquial dialogue on the West Coast.

So I was settling in to another “duty watch”… middle aged man, dressed and talking like a teenager, walks down an alley and meets an assailant. Cue loud music, screams, and sprays of fake blood. Roll opening titles.

But then the film proper starts and, while the budget didn’t get noticeably bigger (thank goodness there are drones available now for cheap God Shots!), the humour increased.

Hawk & Rev: Vampire Slayers is super fun, and worth streaming

To my eye, this was a nice self-referential skit on the comedy and horror films of the last century. There were shades of Bill & Ted, hints of Scream, even the odd bit of Scooby Doo! I did like the way that they didn’t take themselves too seriously; Hawk and Rev go to see someone on the pretext of getting their copy of From Dusk Till Down back. They describe it, and Hawk mentions about the director of it trying to act… Ryan Barton-Grimley plays Hawk and is also the writer/director!

Also there are some nice throwaway jokes during the end credits about the travails of making low budget, independent movies.

So in the end, I was pleasantly surprised by this venture, way more than I expected to be even during the run up to the opening credits.

I’d grade this as a B! Fun film. I hope it does well. We recommend streaming this one if you’re in the mood for light, comic, vampire slaying action.

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.

One response to “Indie Movie Review – Hawk & Rev: Vampire Slayers”

  1. I absolutely enjoyed this one! You’re so right — self referential, easy-going fun. It’s not as slick as the expensive films, but that doesn’t matter here bc that’s not the point. Even the “twist” isn’t the point. It’s just fun to watch these two weirdos come together and somehow make it work.

    Very cool. Thanks for your review.
