“I hate to break the news to ya…but I think you’re a vampire!”

There’s a straight-to-video feature film—released in 1996—entitled Star Hunter…which I will charitably describe as a homage (French for “rip-off”) to Star Wars and Predator.  The presence of Roddy McDowall and Stella Stevens does not mean that this is a good movie, but what may be of interest to the Thrilling Days of Yesteryear faithful is that the direction of this cheesy… Continue reading “I hate to break the news to ya…but I think you’re a vampire!”
