The Monster Hunters

London, 1971. The forces of evil, so long lying dormant, are about to emerge to bring chaos and fear to the swinging streets of the Big Smoke. Who can stand in their way? Roy Steel, professional alcoholic, unprofessional womaniser & ex-big game hunter, and Lorrimer Chesterfield, Professor of occult studies at London's London University and owner of the 2nd largest brain in Britain. Mix one part ‘Dracula: AD 1972’, one part ‘The Beast Must Die’ with a dash of ‘The Persuaders!’ The result: The Monster Hunters! "Crazy and hilarious" - Geek Syndicate
