Focus on Fantasia 2020: “Climate of the Hunter”

Our ‘Focus on Fantasia 2020’ series takes a look at some of the terrific horror films coming to this years Fantasia International Film Festival. Today we focus on one of the festival’s On Demand titles, “Climate of the Hunter.”

Quebec Premiere

Wine, Jello and vamps! Oh my! In CLIMATE OF THE HUNTER, his 27th feature film, legendary underground filmmaker Mickey Reece (STRIKE, DEAR MISTRESS, CURE HIS HEART) pits two sisters (the unforgettable Mary Buss and Ginger Gilmartin) against each other as they vie for the affections of a man who may or not be a bloodsucking vampire. A film teeming with oddball characters, dog philosophers, star swipes and horrifically appealing Jello platters, CLIMATE OF THE HUNTER is an improbably seductive camp classic. A darkly funny take on old vampire perverts, this psychosexual melodrama inquires into the various neurosis of its desperate, lonely characters as they eat, drink, cry, and flirt around a candlelit dinner table.
