Thoughts on Climate of the Hunter
Thoughts – Climate of the Hunter brings us a throwback styled vampire movie, which takes us back to the classic films from the sub-genre we have seen before. It shows us how the vampire in question always has a lure over the women that come into his life, as he could look to slowly seduce them for his own benefit, while the two sisters are putting their own problems into the battle to win his heart. This is a film that relies heavily on the style, which is helped by the wonderful performances through the film from the whole cast and you will be left wanting to know more about the world we are entering. While this movie does look to build up the tension throughout, it doesn’t seem to have the killer punch behind everything but will still manage to standout in the vampire world of recent years.
Final Thoughts – Climate of the Hunter is a stylish breath of fresh air for the vampire movie.
