Predator Hunts the Knights Templar in Short Film - PREDATOR: DARK AGES
A month ago we shared a trailer for an awesome looking fan-made Predator short film called "Predator: Dark Ages." The full short is now available online for you to watch, and it follows a group of Knights Templar who are being hunted by one of the most dangerous and brutal creatures in the universe.
The film was directed by James Bushe, and it turned out to be really fun. You can tell these talented individuals had limitations, but they worked with what they had, and in the end it turned out really well. Here's the brief synopsis:
Set during the Crusades, the faith & fighting skills of a group of Templar Knights is put to the test when they encounter the Predator. Their battle is the thing Myths and Legends are born from.
These 11th century Templar Knights didn't have the muscles or weaponry that Arnold Schwarzenegger did in the original film, and it was entertaining to watch them try to take on the creature. One of the things I liked most about the movie is that it has a solid story built around the hunt instead of the special effects spectacle that a lot of people go for these days. The movie stays true to what type of character the Predator is. He hunts for sport, and he wants a challenge.
