Product Description

Sandy Collora is perhaps best known as the man who directed the cult short film Batman: Dead End, praised by Kevin Smith as possibly the truest, best Batman movie ever made , albeit before the Nolan era. Now, seven years later, Collora has thrown off the shackles of his short film career with the release of his debut feature film Hunter Prey, a science fiction spectacular with the same heart and soul as the glorious Sci-fi of the mid 1980 s. the much-celebrated director and FX designer has his DVD debut December 2010

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good. August 1, 2011
Format:DVD
With low budget science fiction movies it is generally a gamble with the odds already set against you. I don't know what it is about science fiction that draws out the idiots who think they can make a quick buck slapping on some crappy sets on a mediocre script with lousy special effects when there are hundreds of other idiots doing that same thing. There is a glut in the market of these cheap films, and it's hard to tell which ones are worth your time. If you are a true blue rocked to the core sci-fi fan Hunter Prey is one of those worthwhile movies.

I strongly recommend going into this movie with no idea what it's about. But if you must have a synopsis here's the best I can do without revealing too much. A ship crashes and some soldiers are tasked to retrieve an extremely dangerous escaped prisoner. That's all you need to know. Trust me. You get the most out of it that way.

What I like about this film is how it deviates from your normal Sci-Fi in regards to how the story is layed out. Hunter Prey begins with putting you in the middle of a shootout with absolutely no idea what's going on. From there the story starts to unfold and you get more and more information on what's really going on. This sort of gradual reveal works really well with this plot. Especially when you get some intelligent dialog, good cinematography, and pacing that's slow enough to give you time to soak in all the atmosphere.

As this mystery unfolds the real reasons this movie shines start to come through. This movie rides on the writing for the main players. Character development is subtle yet extremely well done. You get to know them with just the little details, and it works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great return to the mood of the 70's June 9, 2010
Format:DVD
Director Sandy Collora brings this simple, but well-realized tale of alien intrigue to another level by infusing it with the mood and flavor of 70's Sci-Fi. It has it's slow parts, but overall, an astonishing achievement considering the budget and the skeleton crew who crafted it. Collora's cinematography is nothing short of breathtaking, and the unobtrusive digital effects help lend a uniquely stark feel to this often eerie film. For a first feature, this is an amazing piece of work, and one can only guess what Collora could do with a real budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic "Sci Fi" style December 9, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this film. The story develops slowly in the beginning, but the captivating landscapes and cinematography keep you engaged. As the characters develop and the story takes off, you're hooked. There are also several twists that I didn't see coming. Another unique characteristic that you don't find in low-budgets of this type is the music/score. It really moves the story forward and sounds fantastic on a home theatre system. Amazing that the producers, director, cast, and crew pulled this off at this level of quality given the resources (or lack thereof). I highly recommend this film.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is surprisingly good. November 3, 2011
Format:DVD
When it first started, the initial cgi shot turned me off but once it got going I could tell it had a look that made it different than other low budget films I'd seen. The quality of the suits and the use of the mauser ammo pouches kept me watching initially I suppose more than anything. The use of helmets exclusively at the beginning was different since most movies don't do that sort of thing. At the very least you see the actors faces. The cinematography was really gorgeous. Fantastic scenery made it look big budget. I would say the thing that stood out the most was the acting by the 'fugitive' character and the last soldier. The acting, especially on the part of Jericho was really pro and didn't come across like one of those cheap scifi channel b movie. This was very enjoyable. I would like to see what the director could do with a bigger budget. The ending shot of the spaceship taking off was very good and far better than the opening shot at the beginning of the movie. The planets in the sky were ok but didn't look polished enough. You got the impression that the two main actors could really go places especially jericho.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful film with riviting characters June 11, 2010
By L. Beck
Format:DVD
I loved this refreshing, visually stunning, old style, character-based sci fi. I was captivated by the cinematography, and completely engrossed by the characters. It's a must see for any sci fi lovers, and a masterpiece in low budget film making. A remarkable film on all accounts.

5.0 out of 5 stars quite extraordinary! January 25, 2011
Format:DVD
The debut feature film by Sandy Collora (Sandy who?) is simply, quite extraordinary. To learn more about Sandy, check out IMDB or Wikipedia. To learn how to make awesome science fiction films on a shoestring budget, and yet produce something that looks & feels like it cost countless millions, then just watch Hunter Prey. Collora is both producer & director, as well as one the actors in the film, and carries out some of the production roles as well. The result is one of the best science fiction films of 2009/2010, alongside Monsters & the earlier District 9. The storyline is simple; aliens are hunting human prey across a desolate sandy landscape. The aliens are reduced to one, & the hunt becomes a game of wits between the hunter & the hunted. But as the story unfolds, nothing is as it seems, and the viewer is drawn into one deception after another, sort of like a good mystery novel that has several twists in the tail. The actors are all unknowns, and yet all rise to the task superbly. The hardware used in the film looks more professional than that used in most sci-fi films of recent years, and the cinematography is simply outstanding. Collora keeps a tight rein on the film, to ensure the action doesn't sag, and the script is always concise & words not wasted, or unnecessary. The quality of this film makes a mockery of many of the recent big budget movies of this genre, and shows just what can be done by an artist like Collora. He presents us with an apocalyptic space adventure borne of precious little finances, & succeeds beyond belief. I loved this film, and would happily give it 6 stars if I could.
