Los Angeles, CA – March 5, 2020 – DARKCOAST announces the release of writer/director, Vincent Soberano’s Filipino-actioner, ‘BLOOD HUNTERS: RISE OF THE HYBRIDS’, arriving on digital streaming platforms March 17th, learned ComicBook.com exclusively.
Dubbed as a visionary in the film arts for his utilization of Filipino martial arts in action scenes, Vincent Soberano’s (The Trigonal: Fight for Justice) feature is an emergence of Filipino folklore, fantasy and martial arts, starring Mayling Ng (The Suicide Squad, Wonderwoman) and international Chinese-American martial arts champion, Sarah Chang (The Trigonal: Fight for Justice).
Inspired by Soberano’s original comic book drawings and a Filipino folklore story from his childhood, BLOOD HUNTERS follows Gabriella, who is on a trail of vengeance after a monster killed her family. On her journey, she teams up with a group of monster hunters called the Slayers, and a hybrid killer named Bolo, looking to redeem his humanity. But when this unlikely troop realizes that they’re all pawns in a twisted plan to lure and destroy the land’s best demon hunters, together they must fight Naga and Gundra – the monster warlords of the supernatural underworld. Can they save the world from Naga, Gundra, and the Monster Queen?
World premiered at AMC Empire 25 in New York Times Square in late 2019, BLOOD HUNTERS swept five out of six awards in the feature film competition of the Cinemax HBO Urban Action Showcase Expo (UASE) International Action Film Festival, receiving Best Action Film, Best Martial Arts, Best VFX, Best Action Sequence and Best Weapons Sequence.
Based on the 2016 short film of the same name, BLOOD HUNTERS is fusion of martial arts, folklore, fantasy and nationalistic undertones, also featuring ASEAN Taekwondo President and Olympian, Monsour del Rosario (Lethal Combat) and Ian Ignacio (BuyBust, Showdown in Manila).
Produced by IndieGo Pictures Entertainment, DarkCoast will release BLOOD HUNTERS: RISE OF THE HYBRIDS digitally in the U.S. on March 17th (Amazon, Vimeo on Demand, FlixFling, Vudu, FANDANGO). Fight to the death with the official trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cWboQ11tJk.
