It’s coming to physical and virtual theaters beginning next week.

Dark Star Pictures has announced that indie auteur Mickey Reese’s CLIMATE OF THE HUNTER will be in select venues December 18, followed by a wider VOD and digital debut January 12. Markets for the theatrical/virtual cinema release include Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, Winchester and Columbus, with more to be announced; platforms carrying CLIMATE in Januray will include iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, Vudu, DirecTV, Dish Network and all major cable providers. Ginger Gilmartin, Mary Buss, Ben Hall and Jacob Ryan Snovel star in the film, which has received raves from numerous critics (including ours). The synopsis: “Two sisters, Alma [Gilmartin] and Elizabeth [Buss], along with a dog who’s described as a ‘philosopher,’ have come to Alma’s remote house to reconnect with Wesley [Hall] after 20 years. Alma is recently divorced, Elizabeth is a workaholic in Washington, D.C., while Wesley lives in Paris dealing with a wife recently struck with a fatal disease. When the three come together for dinner it has all the makings of a lovely adult melodrama about loneliness, and the desire to connect and share our lives with someone… but we must add to the mix one otherworldly piece of information: Wesley could be a vampire.”
