Comments: Taryn starts off killing a demon that looks like a man. It is a bloody battle to the finish. She ends up in jail for killing the man.
The film is shot way to dark. It is hard to see the people clearly. The budget was obviously very small for this movie.
The story is not explained well at all. It is hard to follow what is going on and why people are there.
The fight scenes would be a lot better if you could clearly see them. Character development was needed as well in this movie.
Taryn in the final battle faces the head demon. This battle does end up with her killing the one demon she really wanted to.
Taryn's accent is so cute.
The idea behind this movie is one used many times and if used right can make a great movie. The star does fit the role and looks the part just the story does not give her a proper part to play.
The Demon Hunter had a lot of potential it just short on it though.
