Prey

Prey ★★★★½

The concept of a Predator movie taking place among Native Americans in the 1700’s is something I had really never considered but honestly seems like such no-brainer that I’m surprised it took this long to happen.

Beautiful locations, minimal dialogue, hell…minimal everything. It’s basically just one extended fight scene with a few interludes where Amber Midthunder has to either tend to her dog or prove to the guys that she’s just as capable as them. Very appropriate subtext that shouldn’t be so relevant in 2022 and yet here we are, relevant as hell.

I think I liked it so much because more than anything, it was just something different! The setting was unique and there aren’t many horror movies that take place during this time period with Native Americans as the protagonists. Are there any like that? I can’t think of any.

There’s also plenty of gore and unpleasant stuff to watch which is my bread and butter. Lots and lots of limbs flying through the air. At one point there was a limb lying on the ground and my husband asked who it belonged to and I said “pick someone”.

Good stuff! A close runner-up to Part 2. Stephen was right: I am gonna slap a 4.5 on this bitch!
