The Prey

1h 20m Horror 1983

Three camping couples are stalked by a deformed maniac.

_“A pretty damn fine slasher.” _— Amanda Reyes, Retro Slashers

Three young couples set off into the mountains for a weekend of climbing, drinking, and sex. But little do they know that they are stumbling into the terrain of a fearsome predator — a wild man, horrifically burned as a child many years ago! Now, he roams the woods in search of his next human prey.

Filmed in 1980 (making it a contemporary, rather than an imitator, of FRIDAY THE 13TH), but not released until 1984 when it was picked up by New World Pictures, THE PREY is a unique woodsy slasher that features a bizarro role from Jackie Coogan (Uncle Fester on THE ADDAMS FAMILY) and plenty of nature-set killings. One of the most underrated efforts to hail from the early 1980s slasher wave, THE PREY at last emerges from the VHS wilderness in a brand new 2K restoration from the recently unearthed original camera negative.
