The Prey (1983)

Edwin Brown directs Debbie Thureson, Steve Bond and Lori Lethin in this cheapo slasher in the woods.

Possibly the most cobbled together, fudged and stretched out movie I’ve ever witnessed. Very little scripted dialogue and even less action. Instead, this is often a montage of establishing shots with scripted lines dubbed over them, endless nature shots (often quite gory) and improvised babbling. There’s maybe 20 minutes of competently shot horror movie here and that’s putting a lot of undue pressure on the word “competently”. Terrible acting, weak gore. Still some of that time filler animal footage is quite watchable, if icky.
