Film Description
I have now established that this will be the first part in a series of films featuring the Dark Hunter. If all goes well I hope to squeeze out two more. I;ll have to look at my resources, if it doesn't seem like I can push out another success like this one, then I might just choose to leave this as a very open ended film.

The Dark Hunter is after the Pack. He knows nothing about them, all he knows is that he was told to kill them all. Find out if his journey will end in this small gothic western town, or if it could carry on over somewheres else!

Come watch the unique blend of Western action and gothic style remenicent of Van Helsing, and experpience what may be the first part of an epic saga to discover more about the uknown plauging a small town community, in the Western Gothic!

I liked the line "I always do what I'm told" and the accompanying shot. It really helps establish the character. I liked the early transition from the desert to the foggy town and the music switch was really sweet. Reminded me of the spaghetti westerns. Nice twist and the girl was real purty! This had a really committed feeling to it. Excellent job.

Incredible moview - very anime style. Terrific editing and pacing, the timing was well done, and the flow of it was very smooth. So far, the best movie I've seen! Great job!

A truely excellent film in many respects. The blending of gothic style horror with a western setting is really cool, and it has a great story to back it up. Its great how you managed to truely give it the horror look but give it the western feel.

I also like how you made the werewolf grab the hunter from behind, I figured it might have been one of his cronies or something. Some of the editing was a bit subpar, mainly in how there was a bit to much time inbetween the shotgun being fired and the guy reacting, but thats really minor.

The only real complaint is that the story doesn't end. I really hope you make a follow up to this because I would really, really like to see what happens next.

Overall, very nicely done.

On a side note, I recently released Inhuman Assassin 0, so your review would mean a lot to me (I'm plugging I know, sorry about that but see I like getting feedback)

Ive always been a big fan of Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns, supernatural and the occult like ambience and the anti hero and this film fuses all three together very very effectively. The Dark Hunter is established very well in this film and you have no illusions to his ideals. You know he means business. Hes just unfortunately lacking more depth, but hopefully if you complete those sequels this will be sorted out. The dialogue at times is a little clunky, but only on a few occasions and the story flows at a nice pace and never gets dull. The setting is wonderfuly realised and the town does really have an ominous feel to it. The merging of the western and supernatural elements are rendered expertly and it gave me the idea that this would be the type of deadbeat town you would stop at during your journey on the way down (if you get my meaning). Some of the editing was a little wobbly and i felt some of the scenes could have been cut a little sooner, but there were no glaring continuity errors except for the hole in the jail amazingly vanishing but thats down to the limitations of the game and nothing to do with your skill as a filmmaker. In conclusion this was a very original piece and the sequels, if they come, with be greatly anticipated.

it is pretty good, i thought there were some things you could have done better i thought the werewolf fist fight was comical but i understand fights like that can be difficult with the game, the movie gets 4 mainly for the nice editing you made very good use of static and crane shots that really set up the rest of the film good job and keep up the good work

Very very nice one, the editing was really superb.

I think there were some shortages in the story, because I don't think werewolves and cowboys fit together very good. But on the other side, it somehow remembers me at From Dusk til Dawn.

Still, surely 5 stars, alone the editing is worth 10 stars IMHO :)

- 1st song transition = sloppy and off beat
- subtitles....(whos talking...whos thinking??)
- realism...(werwolf fist fight? not to mention the werwolf sneaking up and holding the guys arms.)

Really good, original Western. The subtitles could use a little polishing, but that doesn't detract from an excellent story and editing. I hope there's more to come from you!

Really liked the genre mix here. Some strange music choices, but for the most part this worked for me! I love how the whole werewolf thing is so.. accepted, part of daily life almost..

Not bad. :) I didn't know that the western setting looked so cool when covered by fog. O_O Oh, i found very funny to have a... ermm... wArewolf? reading a book in the jail. lol I hope that you make a second one and can expand more the details.

Good movie, great story. Its one of those movies where I wished it had V.O

That hunter must sound pretty bad-ass. Least in my head :D Keep up the good work.

Very -good movie. Not sure why, but the beginning scene (I guess the intro) with the music made it seem exactly like the beginning of Kill Bill vol. 1. Idk, but pretty cool. Anyway, very solid movie, ending kind of confusing unless theres a sequel. The bit of confusion at the end is really the only thing holding me back from a 5 star.

Really a very good movie. Too bad there is no voice over and the end was a little bit to long for me (too much talking).
Keep it up.

Great western/horror. Some of the sound editing did edit bad. thats the only complaint I had. there are programs out there that alow you to edit the music files. besides that This was a good solid movie. Subtitles dont bother me since soem mvies work better with subtitles.

You mixed the 2 genres of a western and horror well. The story was good and I do hope there is a sequel.

Just one nit pick was that there was a number of spelling mistakes. More than 1 or 2 and it begins to change my focus from the story to just the subtitles.

All in all a great movie.

A western/horror film ... interesting
I enjoyed the film and it was a nice job mate - gratz

why 3* ?
the lack of voice over was a let down as 80%+ of the tmo films are subtitled unfortunately and so the voice over would have made you different from the rest. I was a little dissapointed in the lack of background story for the lead character and the fact that he had to kill the 'pack' and after finding members he decides to leave town after getting beat up !! - was he expecting the pack just to surrender peacefully.

on the whole it was very watchable

Stranger comes to town with a new twist. The mix of horror and western worked a treat. Subtitles tended to go too fast at times which hindered the enjoyment of the film.
Atmospheric.
