Call Of The Hunter (2010)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
06.25.10

Call Of The Hunter (2010) A documentary film crew is continuing the project of a woman named Caroline, who recently died. It's about the legendary figure of Hern the Hunter who is said to haunt Windsor Forest. We learn that Caroline was murdered at the very house the crew is staying at. Her head was put on a spike, her body found weeks later in the roots of an old oak tree in the middle of the ancient forest. Ralph, Caroline's brother, is miffed that his sister left the house to her lesbian lover, Gabrielle, and this somewhat taints the shoot at the beginning of the movie. Then, weird things start happening...

Ralph tells, via a flashback, of how he first heard of Hern, in the 1960's when his cousin visited. He and his sister found an old hunting horn, the cousin blew into it and called forth Herne. Terrified, the cousin ran off into the woods, never to be seen again. Long ago Hern was King Richard's game keeper and was wrongly put to death. Now, he still haunts the area.

In the house one guy falls down the stairs, then a woman named Natasha wakes up, saying that someone touched her in her room. The documentary's producer, Max, shows up and wants to kill the sound guy who had slept with his wife. Max chases him through the woods but he gets away. Then, Max is found hanging, dead, in a tree, antlers affixed to his head. When they go to cut him down soon after he's gone.

This is an extremely well-done independent horror film with a solid script and cast. Some of the effects scenes are great, such as when a woman is dragged off into the forest by invisible dogs--and when they find a scarecrow that isn't exactly a regular scarecrow. CALL OF THE HUNTER would make an intriguing franchise, as it has a strong supernatural character at its center. If you're tired of seeing mediocre indy horror then make sure to check this movie out--it will reaffirm your faith in independent productions.

Directed by Anthony Straeger
