Vertical Entertainment has released a new trailer for Jordan Downey’s newly titled medieval horror movie The Head Hunter ahead of the film’s April 5, 2019 release.
The Head Hunter follows the lonely, twisted trek of a bounty hunter (Christopher Rygh) who seeks vengeance on the monster that slayed his only daughter.
The movie has played the Sitges Film Festival in Spain and won Best Overall Feature Film and Best Cinematography awards at the Nightmares Film Festival. Downey, in addition to directing, co-wrote with Kevin Stewart (Unfriended: Dark Web) who also served as DP. Downey and Stewart are producers along with Ricky Fosheim and Erin Moody as associate producer.
“On the outskirts of a kingdom, a quiet but fierce medieval warrior protects the realm from monsters and the occult. His gruesome collection of heads is missing only one – the monster that killed his daughter years ago. Driven by a thirst for revenge, he travels wild expanses on horseback, using sorcery to aid in his quest. When his second chance arrives, it’s in a way far more horrifying than he ever imagined. A heartbreaking fairytale with a black soul, the film is constructed with very few elements, minimalistic and epic at the same time, where fantasy and horror find their more physical and gory incarnations.”
