The birth of a new medieval horror is showcased in THE HEAD HUNTER, coming to select theaters and VOD this Friday, April 5. Jump past the jump for an exclusive excerpt, the poster and details on where it’s playing.

Released by Vertical Entertainment, THE HEAD HUNTER was directed by Jordan Downey from a script he wrote with Kevin Stewart. Christopher Rygh and Cora Kaufman star; the synopsis: “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.”
