Prey (2010)

Prey • Proie (2010)

Genre: Horror
Director: Antoine Blossier
Starring: Grégoire Colin, François Levantal, Fred Ulysse, Joseph Malerba, Bérénice Bejo
Language: French
Duration:  85 min.
Rating: 5.4  

A family reunion turns deadly when mutant animals launch a violent attack.

Prey is the debut feature film from French director Antoine Blossier.  It premiered at the 2010 L'Étrange Festival in France. 

A gory and brutal tale about a boar hunt gone wrong, Prey has a few scattered moments of intensity, but fails to really make an impact with a predictable sequence of events; characters you'd rather see die than live, yes every last one of them; and worst of all, most of the bloody action occurs off screen.

It might be worth a watch if you are in the mood for a straight forward horror and it happens to be on.  Otherwise forget I even mentioned it.

I find that movies like this tend to make the trailers completely of all the best parts, which means I don't actually have to ever watch the movie. Nice review though :)

I really like the ending of this review "forget I even mentioned it.". I follow your advice!

You want to see ALL of them die? It sounds pretty terrible and all, but just the same that's interesting. Yeah, I'll skip it.
