The Prey: Second rate 80's slasher

The Prey follows the tried and tested formula of a group of 20 somethings who venture into the forest to camp unaware that something lingers between the trees with evil intentions. In this case we have a bit of a Wrong Turn (2003) vibe and absolutely no originality or standout moments at all. One thing I can certainly say for The Prey is that certain elements are beautiful. The movie is full of what I can only assume is stock footage of forestry wildlife and though it seems like filler it really is quite exquisite. As for the film itself it is full of mediocre deaths, generic characters and lackluster writing. The Good: Beautiful nature shots Oddly dark finale The Bad: Paint by numbers stuff Weak death scenes Things I Learnt From This Movie: I've seen enough of these films now to put me off camping for life

Bloody banjo.

In "The Prey" six young and irresponsible campers Nancy,Joel,Skip,Gail and Greg hike into the thick woods at North Point,oblivious to the fact that a nice married couple was recently axe-murdered there while camping by monstrous butcher.Before long the young adults are the prey of an unseen stalker,a deformed gypsy."The Prey" is actually better than its reputation suggests.Our mountain man is a pretty creepy killer and the death scenes are quite gory.The stock nature footage includes long views of centipedes,frogs,spiders,snakes,bugs and more.There is even awesome banjo solo played by a lonely forest ranger.The killings include axe decapitation,ripping out the throat,a sleeping bag suffocation and so on.The final ten minutes are excellent revealing the inevitable killer and displaying his intelligence.The ending is pessimistic and quite disturbing.6 out of 10.

bad jokes, stock footage, clichés, and cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches on oatmeal bread

All the criticisms of this movie are quite valid! It is pretty boring, and filled with all kinds of pointless ridiculous stuff. A couple exchanging nods over their "good grub." A medium shot of a desk as a phone rings until someone finally comes, sits down, and answers it at a pretty leisurely pace. Quadruple-takes or more when people look at things. Solitary banjo-tuning and playing, taking a break for a beer. Telling a joke to a fawn, about a big-mouthed frog trying to learn what to feed its babies, complete with many big-mouthed expressions (which are needed for the weak punchline). The sharing of cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches on oatmeal bread, which to the squeamish become unpalatable when there's talk of people burned in a fire. Lots of seemingly stock-footage close-up shots of animals, birds, insects, and spiders in the woods. The movie starts with a forest fire, then at least a couple decades later some people in those same woods get killed by an axe. The killer evidently wasn't too satisfied by the axe he stole, and kills other people with other weapons of opportunity or his bare hands. If it's true that the movie in the version available on the out-of-print videotape is cut, perhaps if there's a lot of footage that was cut, it deserves another look on DVD. Otherwise, it's simply not very interesting, and would probably try the patience of even the most hardcore outdoors-slasher fan.
