By Brad Miska
Meet Hawk & Rev: Vampire Slayers, a hilarious duo who are battling blood-suckers in their hometown of Santa Muerte, California. Bloody Disgusting learned today that Freestyle Digital Media has acquired the horror-comedy and will make it available to rent and own on digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms and DVD on March 16, 2021.
“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 of 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. Just when it looks like all Hawk’s options in life have expired, filthy blood-sucking vampires appear and of course — nobody believes him! 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.”
The film was written and directed by Ryan Barton-Grimley, who stars as Hawk. Ari Schneider stars as Rev.
“I made Hawk & Rev: Vampire Slayers because I was looking for a laugh and something truly heartfelt, some much-needed levity and humor,” said Barton-Grimley. “It is quite simply a love letter to my childhood in the mid-1980s, a more innocent and clueless time when everything seemed possible.”
Here’s an exclusive look at the film’s trailer and art.
