Prey is a 2022 American science fiction action horror film hung on the Predator franchise. It’s the fifth investment and is a prequel to the first four movies, set in the Northern Great Plains in North America in 1719. The director of this movie is Dan Trachtenberg and the writer is Patrick Aison.
The story of this movie moves around Naru, a young girl who wants to become a professional hunter just like her brother and seeks to prove herself as a huntsman. She finds herself having to defend her people from a vicious, humanoid alien that hunts humans for sport and French fur dealers who are destroying the buffalo they depend on for survival.
Development of the film began during the production of The Predator (2018), when producer John Davis was approached by Trachtenberg and Aison, with a conception that they had been developing since 2016. In late 2020, the film’s title was revealed to be the codename for the fifth investiture in the ballot.
Filming took place around Calgary during the summer of 2021, with the entire film shot in English and some sequences shot in Comanche as well. The cast dubbed the remaining sequences into Comanche, reprising their places.

The plot of the Movie
The story starts in 1719 with the Great Plains location, in the first scene we see a young girl name Naru, a young Comanche woman trained as a healer, who dreams of getting a great huntsman like her brother, Taabe. While tracking deer with her doggy, Sarii, she testaments the lights of an alien Predator’s spacecraft, which she interprets as a Thunderbird, taking it as a sign to prove herself. At the vill, one of their lineage’s hunters has been taken by a mountain lion.
Taabe says Naru can come to the hunting party, but only to help track the catamount and give medical treatment if they find the huntsman alive. They recoup the wounded huntsman and depart, though Taabe stays behind to find and kill the big cat. Chancing large unusual tracks and a meticulously barked rattlesnake, Naru circles back with Paake and finds Taabe. Together the three set a trap for the mountain lion but unfortunately, it kills Paake.
Naru faces off with the big cat on the branch of a tree but, after being detracted by the strange sounds and lights of the Predator in the distance, falls and strikes her head. Naru wakes up in her brother’s home and then she come to know she has been carried back by Taabe. He latterly returns to the vill carrying the dead mountain captain, earning him the title of War Chief. induced of lesser trouble they have no way to see ahead, Naru departs with Sarii.
She comes across a herd of bearded bison left to spoilage on the plains; thwarted by the extravagant bloodbath, she says a prayer for their spirits. ultimately, she stumbles into a slush-filled bog hole, which nearly quaffs her before she escapes. Naru and Sarii are latterly attacked by a horrible bear. As they flee for their lives, the bear is killed by the Predator, giving Naru time to escape before running into a group of Comanche transferred to find her. The Predator ambushes and kills the men in combat, while Naru is caught in a base trap; the Predator leaves as it no longer sees her as trouble.
French voyageurs, responsible for massacring the bison, come to check their trap, find Naru and pen her. Their practitioner, Raphael Adolini, questions Naru about the Predator, who the Frenchmen have encountered ahead. When she refuses to talk, the lead voyageur reveals that he has Taabe interned and tortures him before using both siblings as bait for the Predator.
While tied to a tree, Taabe admits to his family that she had weakened the mountain captain, enabling him to kill it. The Predator kills utmost of the Frenchmen while Taabe and Naru escape. Naru rescues Sarii from the camp and stumbles across a dying Raphael, who teaches her how to use his flintlock dynamo in exchange for medical treatment for his disassociated leg.
Naru gives him some herbs which help to reduce his body heat to stop the bleeding from his body. When the Predator comes, Raphael pretends like she is dead, and Naru realizes that, due to his reduced heat, the predator cannot see him. After the predator steps on Raphael, he screams, and he heard the scream of Raphel and then the Predator kills him. Then taabe comes on his horseback to rescue Naru. In the end, Naru shoots the predator then Naru serves the predator’s head and paints her face with the green glowing blood of the predator as a sign of her victory.
Prey Movie Special Effects Which Make The Movie More Realistic
We are living in a changing world where everything becomes technical and in the movie world in today’s time what makes a movie more realistic and amazing is special effects it’s like without special effects a movie is just unfinished so in this movie (prey) high-quality special effects are used. Amalgamated DynamicsInc. (ADI) was hired to work on the unique and critter goods on the film, having preliminarily worked on The Predator and the crossover flicks Alien vs. Bloodsucker (2004) and Aliens vs. Predator Requiem (2007).
The Predator’s new design aimed to make him scarier and take advantage of the slender constitution of portrayer Dane DiLiegro. To make him less creatural, there were changes to the face like further spaced eyes that led to a head completely made of animatronics standing atop DiLiegro’s own, reducing his sight to two small holes in the neckpiece.
The costume, which had the challenge of being flexible for the fight choreography while resistant enough to repel the position’s rainfall, (18) ladened 80 pounds (36 kg) and was primarily made out of froth latex, which DiLiegro noted as being” basically a sponger” getting heavier and wetter as we sweated under the summer sun. the whole team gives their all to make this movie the best horror thriller movie.
