When Dracula (Brad Austin), Funkenstein (Jason MCall) and the Wolfman (Travis Indovina) come to Bonejack Heights in search of an amulet that will give them unlimited power, it’s up to the Paranormal Investigation Agency’s top two agents, Bonejack (Chris Seaver, who is also the director/writer) and Teenape (Casey Bowker) to save the day. Luckily, they have a new recruit to help with the a*s kicking duties. Her name is Brandy (Ariauna Albright), and she’s ready for action despite the fact that she’s still wet behind the ears.
For a movie called “Destruction Kings,” there’s not a hell of a lot of destruction going on. It doesn’t matter, though, because there’s a ton of humor (both juvenile and clever) that is just the thing to be expected from a Seaver film. Oh, and the end kind of just happens, too, but that’s a minor quibble. Truth be told, there’s something about this film that sets it apart from the other epics directed by Seaver.
The film feels more mature. That’s a word hardly ever used in describing Seaver’s films, but it fits here. Sure, the jokes often center around toilet humor and sexism, but the story and characters are more developed than usual, and that gives the film a more professional feel. It seems that Seaver is growing as a director and writer, and that bodes very well for the future of this production company.
If you haven’t been a fan of these films, this probably won’t change your mind. If you’ve been on the fence, however, check this one out, as it may make a believer out of you.
