Hey Gang! We've been talking about Sandy Collora's new sci-fi film Hunter Prey for some time now. If for some reason you don't know who Sandy Collora is, he is the man behind the famous fan favorite, Batman: Dead End short film. He makes his full length film debut with Hunter Prey. We have a great interview with Sandy about his experiences in making the movie, which is a must read for anybody that loves film. The film was shot on a very low budget, but it has that great original classic 1970's sci-fi film vibe that we haven't seen in a long time.
Here is what the film is about, with some great new images from the film thanks to i09.
Hunter Prey centers around a group of elite intergalactic commandos that have crash-landed on a harsh and unknown planet while transporting an alien prisoner. Now they must track down and recapture the escaped creature, and their orders are to bring it in ALIVE.
The soldiers begin to question their orders while finding themselves at a severe disadvantage, not being able to harm the prisoner. The team starts getting picked off, one by one, by their dangerous adversary, until the odds become even.
With one soldier remaining, he’s faced with a decision. Does he risk his life playing the creature’s game or does he disobey his orders and kill it. The realization he comes to, after finding out why his superiors want the prisoner alive and why the alien is trying to escape, starts to change the way he thinks not only about his situation, but himself, as he finds out who’s really hunting whom?
I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie. I had the opportunity to watch the first 5 minutes of the film which you can read about here. There no word on when the film will be released, I believe it is currently awaiting a distributer, but we will most likely be able to see it sometime in 2010.
