Hawk & Rev: Vampire Slayers Out On VOD and DVD March 16th + A Review


Horror-Comedy Debuts on North American
VOD Platforms and DVD on March 16th

Los Angeles, CA – February 22, 2021 – Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired North American VOD rights to the horror-comedy HAWK & REV: VAMPIRE SLAYERS.  HAWK & REV: VAMPIRE SLAYERS will be available to rent and own on North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms and DVD on March 16, 2021 through Freestyle Digital Media.

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 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.

Written and directed by Ryan Barton-Grimley, HAWK & REV: VAMPIRE SLAYERS features an ensemble cast including Ryan Barton-Grimley (‘Hawk’), Ari Schneider (‘Rev’), Jana Savage (‘Theo’), Richard Gayler (‘Jasper’), Casey Graf (‘Arnold’), Kevin Ocampo (‘Terry’), and Jeff Lorch (‘Deputy Jack Scroggins’).

HAWK & REV: VAMPIRE SLAYERS was produced by Ryan Barton-Grimley, AJ Gordon, and Ari Schneider. Joel M. Schneider is Executive Producer.
“I made HAWK AND REV: VAMPIRE SLAYERS because I was looking for a laugh and something truly heartfelt, some much-needed levity and humor. It is quite simply a love letter to my childhood in the mid-1980’s, a more innocent and clueless time when everything seemed possible,” said Ryan Barton-Grimley. “I really just hope viewers enjoy the ride and have a nice heartfelt feeling and the knowledge that maybe, just maybe, we’ll all be OK.”

Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire HAWK AND REV: VAMPIRE SLAYERS directly with filmmaker Ryan Barton-Grimley.

The 411:

I thought this was hysterical. Hawk played by Ryan Barton-Grimley who also wrote and directed this movie wants to be a vampire slayer. He lives in a tent in his parents back yard and catching and reporting on blood suckers. He enlists the help of The Rev a sloth like, groundskeeper, tai chai like Napoleon Dynamite dude who although doesn't believe him at first is soon on board. Hawk refers to the The vampires as The Lost Boys and that is not the only reference to pop culture. That was probably my favorite part of the movie!  I loved the montages of these dudes getting ready to kick some vamp booty as well as all the music. I also enjoyed the way it was filmed. Quick snippets that keep the eyes moving and the viewer interested. 

The acting was fun and comical. I loved the ridiculousness, hokey script that although silly was really a fun time. The Cobra Kai headband was the icing on the cake of a really fun movie! I loved it!
