Howdy Hell Hounds !! Axemaster , reporting live from the dungeon this evening with another blast from the past ! The Prey !! Ooooo !! Sounds scary right !?? Sounds like it could make your eyeballs bleed and you tonsils tear from screaming with fright ! Right !??? Well ........
|"Good lord this script is Killing Me !"|
The flick opens with a scene from 1948 . There's this fire raging and consuming the side of a mountain . People (that are nowhere to be seen on screen !) are screaming . (probably because they know how bad the movie is !) Then , flash forward to the present (in this case 1984 !) and a middle aged couple camping , on the very same mountain side . There is a noticeable lack of dialog , as you see these to eat , chew , swallow , and eat some more ! Then there's the wild life scenes ! Yeah like a caterpillar eating a leaf you know ? Or a spider grabbing an unsuspecting fly !! (No I'm not kidding !) These Marlin
Perkins moments are all through this flick ! Weird ! Anyway , finally , Gertrude says to Hubby ........"I'm going down to the lake "........... !!! Wow they speak ! Naturally , we see from the point of view of someone , .. or Something ... Lurking in the woods , the camp fire of these two innocent granola lovers ! (every time they show this "Lurkers " view , there is the sound of a heart beat !! Yes ... Cheese !!) Well old Gertrude makes it to the lake , hears Hubby let off a blood curdling scream and double times it back to camp ! Just in time to see the decapitated body of Hubby , before she herself ,
|"Watching the prey did this to me !! Law Suit !!"|
Cut to the scene where , six young hippie looking kids pull up in an old van (Yawn !) . They are going Camping ! (No !! Really !?) And guess which part of the mountain they're heading to !!? Uh Huh ! The bad side !
Anyway , more wildlife shots ensue as they hike into he woods . As our hapless gang of nature lovers hike in , the local Ranger service gets the missing persons report for Gertrude and Hubby . The old Ranger tells the young Ranger , to go check out the situation . He also tells him of having fought a forest fire in the area where Gert and Hub disappeared . He mentions that a band of gypsies (no connection to Jimi Hendrix I'm sure !) lived up there and got burned alive !! Bodies everywhere !! Worst fire , he ever seen !! He also mentions that on the only occasion he ever went there again , he thought he saw ,.............. A BOY !! ( Oh my God really !!! ???)
Hiding in the woods ....... watching him ! I know ... Terrifying isn't it .
Do our happy Hippie Hikers make it out ? Does Ranger Rick save the day ! If you love real bad flicks , find out for yourselves Horror hounds !
Just don't say I didn't warn you !! Incidentally , The Prey , has prompted Happywax and myself to add a new link to our Blog ......................... STINKERS!!
