Overview

A secret U.S. military strike force battles a vampire infestation in the South American jungle in this action/horror film commissioned for the SciFi cable network. The top brass can't officially admit that vampires exist, but that doesn't stop Col. Jessica Weaver Lynda Carter from sending army commando Hawk Casper Van Dien and his team to the rain forest, where entire villages are being overrun by bloodsucking fiends. Things get even trickier when Hawk finds out that his ex-wife, Laurie Jennifer O'Dell -- who is also Col. Weaver's niece -- is in the same region conducting scientific research. Grieves Kevin Grevioux, Hawk's right-hand man, soon gets enlisted into the ranks of the undead. But it's Laurie who unwittingly stumbles on the king of all vampires: Javier Tony Plana, a seemingly mild-mannered nobleman whose secret history begins with the conquistadors and their quest for the fountain of youth. Slayer premiered July 8, 2006, on SciFi. Star Van Dien and writer/director Kevin VanHook previously teamed up for the 2005 horror film The Fallen Ones, while Van Dien and Grevioux are both veterans of Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Yet another low-rent outing from the SciFi cable network, this formulaic horror/action vehicle almost redeems itself with tongue-in-cheek casting and campy humor. The script, by writer/director Kevin VanHook, isn't without its share of clever ideas and serviceable set pieces. Yet VanHook and his cast settle for rote action and buddy-movie dialogue when they could have aimed for something a little sillier and more over-the-top. Looking like a poor man's Viggo Mortensen and smirking like a cut-rate Harrison Ford, Casper Van Dien demonstrates exactly why he's never become a bigger star. Meanwhile, co-star Kevin Grevioux of Underworld fame proves that big muscles and an incredibly deep voice obviate the need for actual acting. The sight of Lynda Carter in military regalia inspires a few twinges of Wonder Woman nostalgia but ultimately underscores the crucial ingredient Slayer is missing: the courage to embrace its own inherent cheesiness.
