By the tim...

Blast from the Past: Hell Hunters


When? 1986  |  Where? DVD  |  Rated? Not rated. The ’80s were a special time for movies—an especially bad time! So much schlock came out full of silly plots, mindless action, and gratuitous nudity. Hell Hunters is exactly that sort of trashy fun. A group of Nazi hunters is searching for ...
