Take a Bite Out of New York's The Hunted: Encore, an Action-Packed Vampire Musical Web Series, as Season Two Debuts on Halloween
Amid the postmodern vampire projects across film, television, stage, and new media comes Charging Moose Media’s web series The Hunted: Encore. The Larson-esque music sounds like a mix of 1980s synth fare, 2000s punk rock, and a tasteful dollop of Broadway. All publicity by Visionary Cinema.
Through eight new episodes of season two, roughly five minutes each, it is a year after the events of season one. The slayers of The Hunted: Encore face a new threat as vlogging vampires John and Adam have started a wildly successful campaign to win public support for their creed. But that’s not all; in order to deal with Megan and the slayers for good, John has called in the Queens of the Damned, the top mercenary-for-hire vampire assassin squad in the country, and an rollicking rock band.
Fearing that the Encore team may be in over their heads, chief slayer (and The Hunted’s creator) Bob has come to warn them about the imminent danger and train them before it’s too late. There’s just one problem: the Queens don't only want Megan’s blood; they want her.
The first season featured eight original songs in an award-winning score. In season two, eight brand new original songs, six written by composer Preston Max Allen (a writer in the vein of Jonathan Larson) send The Hunted: Encore to new heights unlike any vampire project in any medium before or since.
