The Film Chest Media Group is poised to deliver a new HD restoration (from the original 35mm print) of director Ernst R. von Theumer’s Hell Hunters on July 5, an all-action 1986 thriller featuring runaway Nazis, Nazi hunters, spider venom, zombies, murder and revenge.
Deep in the jungles of the land-locked South American country of Paraguay lives a crazed Nazi scientist, Dr. Martin Hoffmann (Stewart Granger), who has taken refuge there, and with his able assistant Heinrich (George Lazenby), continues his insane research.
As the story unfolds, a breakthrough has been achieved and a mysterious concoction of spider venom has been developed by Hoffmann and Heinrich that shows promise of being a powerful mind-control drug — a new Nazi zombie army is potentially at hand! However, a Nazi-hunter by the name of Amanda (Maude Adams) has seduced Hoffmann’s nephew and tricked him into marrying her. That brings her face to face with her target in his jungle lair!
Sadly, Amanda’s mission is discovered and her fate is sealed. Hoffman is a man without mercy; a killer without remorse.
Has Hoffman once again escaped justice? Will his plan to put his spider venom to work go unthwarted … and Los Angeles is his proposed test site. Or, will Amanda daughter, Ally (Candice Daly), find a way to put her mother’s network back together again, exact her revenge and finally bring this evil Nazi to justice?
