There are just a few forms of film that can by no means exit of fashion. Zombie horrors, romantic thrillers with inappropriate age gaps between the leads, dire comedies the place engaging twenty-somethings pretending to be youngsters have a lot of intercourse, and monster motion pictures the place a band of hardened troopers journey to part of the world that the US considers uncivilized and are picked off one after the other by a CGI monstrosity.
The Prey: Legend of the Karnoctus is one other of the latter, and a brand new trailer gives us with a good suggestion of what we are able to anticipate from it. The story sees a platoon of American troopers in Afghanistan looking for the Taliban prefer it’s 2006, solely to grow to be trapped in a cave whereby resides an unstoppable monster that begins stalking the grunts and killing them in bloody messes, till it’s right down to ageing badass Vega (Danny Trejo) to take out the creature as soon as and for all.
Sure, it’s all very Predator, and in case you mentally swap out the Center Japanese mountains with the jungles of Central America the similarities are much more obvious. Nonetheless, it’s all the time enjoyable to see Trejo in a number one position, and his presence will likely emphasize the movie’s DTV stylings.
As for the titular creature, a cursory session with Google reveals it to be an invention of the film and never a pre-existing delusion requiring additional analysis so I can faux I do know what I’m speaking about. Just a few temporary flashes of it are seen within the trailer, the place it resembles one thing alongside the traces of a rabid baboon, however revealed in its full glory it would hopefully be extra of a nightmarish presence. The title’s colon and subtitle referring to it have been most likely added after somebody in advertising realized that merely The Prey wouldn’t precisely make for probably the most Search engine optimization-friendly of titles, and so required an addition to make it stand out when individuals are looking for it.
The Prey: Legend of the Karnoctus seems to be like a well-known assortment of the form of questionable CGI and dimly-lit monster motion for which Syfy is famend, however will however be an undemanding romp of blood, screaming and terror.
