Hunters is a 2021 American science fiction post-apocalypse film about a soldier and other survivors fending off monstrous mutants.

Written and directed by Justin Lee (Hellblazers; Maneater; A Reckoning; Big Legend). Produced by Vasily Bernhardt, Daemon Hillin and Taras Shydlyk. Ian Ziering was an executive producer.

The movie stars Phil Burke, Nicole Craner, Ed Morrone, Sanford Worth and Ian Ziering

Several years after a virus has ravaged the world, soldier John T. Wrecker continues his task of protecting a group of refugees and the base to which he was assigned, in spite of scarce supplies and an ever-dwindling discovery of survivors. As he goes about his daily routine, the threat of something new and even more dangerous grows ever closer in the form of monstrous mutants.

The arrival of another soldier from a different outpost gives John hope that they might be able to fight this horrific new threat together. But with time running out and the new mutations closing in, John is facing the annihilation of his mission and the lives that rely on him…


Hunters is that kind of terrible that makes me question my choices in life. This movie is 90 minutes long and I think 3/4s of it is just an idiot walking alone in the woods. He doesn’t talk to himself (which would be awesome if he did), he walks slowly through the woods for anything that might be of interest to his simple brain. He walks a lot not finding anything, he stares endlessly at trees, sky, whatever.” Donald @ Letterboxd

“This really feels like a short blown out to feature-length with endless shots of John wandering around in the forest and Ian Ziering’s scenes spliced in. But even with all the padding stripped out, the action is so badly staged and the plot so disjointed that Hunters still would be boring.” Voices from the Balcony
