DIRECTOR: Sandy Collora
PRODUCERS: Daren Hicks / Simon Tams
Isaac C Singleton Jr., Clark Bartram, Damion Poitier, Simon Potter
From cult Director Sandy Collora whose first (short) film, Batman: Dead End, became an internet sensation with 1.6+ million downloads in less than two days, comes his first feature, Hunter Prey...
'Priority One. Alpha Base. The Prometheus has dropped out of orbit. Communications and life support systems are down. Situation Critical: Status of Crew and Prisoner unknown.'
So, our story begins... With orders to catch their Alien Prisoner alive the surviving crew of the spaceship Prometheus pursue a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with their escaped prisoner on a deserted and barren planet.
But, who is the hunter and who is its' prey?
Simply the best of the rest 2010:
films the critics forgot to mention.
The likes of Inception and Toy Story 3 got all the
acclaim last year, but which movies will you really
watch again and again?
Monsters took plenty of (rightful) praise for the ingenuity Gareth Edwards employed to turn half a million dollars into a science-fiction giant creature movie. This film, from another ex-VFX artist Sandy Collora (of Batman: Dead End fame), did something arguably even more remarkable: a science-fiction action movie, set on an alien world for even less cash. It starts off a bit clumsily, like it should be called Cosplay: The Movie, as armoured soldiers bark near-unintelligible orders at each other, but after this hump it turns into a twisty, involving and rather ingenious tale. Hunter Prey is like Star Wars, Terminator and District 9 inasmuch as it's a film where everyone involved is clearly giving their all under a director who truly knows the genre inside out, and while there are many reference points (including Enemy Mine, The Twilight Zone, 2000 AD and Heavy Metal comics) they are correctly used as building blocks rather than just being straight quotes.
