In most stories about vampire hunters, the hunters themselves are depicted as somewhat competent. Not so with Hawk and Rev, the undead-staking team at the center of Freestyle Digital Media’s Hawk And Rev: Vampire Slayers. It’s described as what Van Helsing would be like if the duo from Dumb and Dumber were involved.
Philip “HAWK” Hawkins has dreamed of the vampire hunting career his entire life…the only problem is, he has yet to run into one. But when he DOES finally find a vampire horde — while working as a night watchman in his small hometown — no one will believe him. That is, with the exception of his spaced-out pal, Revson “Rev” McCabe. Can they stop the spread of vampirism before sunup? Depends on if they don’t wind up slaying themselves first.
“I made Hawk And Rev: Vampire Slayers because I was looking for a laugh and something truly heartfelt, some much-needed levity and humor. It is quite simply a love letter to my childhood in the mid-1980’s, a more innocent and clueless time when everything seemed possible,” said Ryan Barton-Grimley. “I really just hope viewers enjoy the ride and have a nice heartfelt feeling and the knowledge that maybe, just maybe, we’ll all be OK.”
Hawk And Rev: Vampire Slayers stars Ryan Barton-Grimley (‘Hawk’), Ari Schneider (‘Rev’), Jana Savage (‘Theo’), Richard Gayler (‘Jasper’), Casey Graf (‘Arnold’), Kevin Ocampo (‘Terry’), and Jeff Lorch (‘Deputy Jack Scroggins’). It was written and directed by Barton-Grimley, and it’s available starting now on DVD, iTunes, Xbox, Google Play, and YouTube Movies.
HAWK & REV: VAMPIRE SLAYERS tells the story of Philip “HAWK” Hawkins. Hawk doesn’t just dream about killing vampires, he eats, sleeps, drinks and freakin’ breaths it! After getting kicked out the army for staking a fellow soldier with a blunt two by four, Hawk almost dies of boredom working as a night security guard in his hometown of Santa Muerte, California. With his back up against the wall, his sweaty Karate Kid headband on and hordes of murderous vampires closing in, Hawk enlists the help of the one person who kind of believes him: Revson “REV” McCabe, a dimwitted, vegan-pacifist groundskeeper. Together they join forces to save the whole entire freakin’ world! Well, at least their hometown anyway.
