"The Hunters" is a Hallmark Channel original movie about a family that gets involved in hunting for magical artifacts. The movie, which is airing on Hallmark Channel on Halloween, Oct. 31, 2013, stars Victor Garba, Michelle Forbes Alexa Vega, Robbie Amell, Keenan Tracey and Dan Payne. "The Hunters" is based on Joshua Williamson's comic book "Mirror, Mirror."
Carter (Payne and Jordyn Flynn (Forbes) aren’t the average mom and dad. For them, a typical workday can take place anywhere in the world, raiding ornate museums and evading pursuing authorities as Hunters, protectors of powerful fairy tale artifacts that are anything but make believe. They take their jobs seriously, but they are just as concerned about the welfare of their two sons, 21-year old Paxton (Amell) and 16-year old Tripp (Tracey). The boys are unaware of their parents’ true line of work.
When Carter and Jordyn disappear after being intercepted by the mysterious Mai (Kira Clavell) during one of their missions, the boys learn the truth about their parents and their lineage from the Flynns’ young assistant Dylan (Vega). The boys turn to to old family friend Mason (Garber) for help but it becomes evident that Mason cannot be trusted. They discover that the deceitful Mason is after what the Flynns were trying to protect an enchanted mirror that has the ability to grant any wish.
The enchanted mirror has quite a history because it is the same mirror that played a pivotal role in the destiny of Snow White. The valiant brothers and Dylan realize that is is up to them to save the day before very real fairy tale magic falls into Mason’s less-than-worthy hands.
