Independent director, actor and martial artist Franklin Correa has managed to succeed quite a bit in his efforts in the last seven years I’ve observed his work.
Characteristic of the kind of no-budget indie fare his films usually sit in, they definitely bare an unmistakable lackluster presentation in terms of production quality, which is bound to irk even the most optimistic moviegoer, and admittedly, the trailer above for new thriller, Manhunt, definitely alludes to this sort of reaction. Nevertheless, I’ve always given credence to his efforts along with that of his performers, in addition to the grist of his storytelling capacity.
His latest no-budget crime drama oddity looks to present this very continued potential as it launched on Tuesday. The film is available to rent via YouTube, Amazon Prime and Xumo with a DVD release TBD.
Manhunt centers on Conroy (Franklin Correa), a survivalist and combat instructor forced into a maniacal cat-and-mouse game when a sadistic madman named Santos (Jorge Valentin) surfaces. Faced with rescuing his captive fiancée, Stacey (Anissa Smith), Conroy enlists his trainees to help rescue her from Santos and his squad of assasins.
Also starring are Will Fonseca and Alanzo Phillips.
