The original film centers on a low-level crook who had to break out of jail in order to save his family from his former cellmate, who turns out to be a brilliant but deranged serial killer.
Eric Valette directed the original, titled La Proie, which was written by Luc Bossi and Laurent Turner and produced by Bossi with his company, Brio Films. StudioCanal co-produced and distributed the film.
Croker is an up-and-coming British writer who wrote The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, the sequel to the 2012 hit horror movie that is now in production. His other horror projects include developing a remake of The Abominable Snowman with Hammer Films as well as Black Palace for Pathe.

“I don’t do trust,” Franck Adrien (Dupontel) says more than once, and it serves not only as a handy bit of character description but a clue as to how to watch “The Prey.” Almost every character in this harrowing story — good, bad or somewhere in between — has at least one occasion to hide the

French director Eric Valette, whose 2002 debut Malefique was an overbaked grindhouse misfire (even though it certainly didn’t lack in perverse flair), has made his most promising film yet with the poppy, pulpy and generically titled The Prey. While languishing in forgettable material since for some time now (including the English language version of One Missed Call), Valette still doesn’t transcend B movie trappings with this latest, but he manages to use his likeable lead in a slickly paced exercise stuffed with plenty of entertaining details to hold your interest.
We meet Franck Adrien (Albert Dupontel) in the middle of sexual interlude with his wife Anna (Caterina Murino), though we quickly realize that Franck is in prison and this is a conjugal visit. It turns out that Franck was responsible for a lofty bank heist, and he was never

Not only did this decade easily and obviously eclipse the comparatively arid 1990’s in both volume of production and overall quality, the 2000’s can also be looked at as a crucial one for horror cinema despite the justified outrage about the American film industry’s widespread strip-mining of classics and foreign films for remakes/re-boots and its saturation of the market with teen-friendly PG-13 rated horror films.
While by no means as groundbreaking as the 1970’s or as sentimentally regarded as the 1980’s, the 2000’s will be recalled as the decade that, despite well-founded criticisms

The roles are reversed but the themes are familiar in this rise-and-fall tale of male strippers, making and losing their way in a (sort of) woman's world. It's like a cross between The Full Monty, Boogie Nights and Showgirls, sketching a landscape of exploitation and desperation – even as it participates in it by serving up the barely clad Tatum and other beef products.

The Prey runs in the footsteps of The Fugitive, doffs its cap to Seven and tips a wink to Tell No One. Its director, Eric Valette, is an exuberant market-stall trader, hawking knock-off ingredients as he sends rough diamond Franck (Albert Dupontel) busting out of jail on a mission to thwart a serial killer. Before long, Franck is bouncing off car bonnets, vaulting fences and surfing commuter trains, with les flics in hot pursuit. The only thing he can't out-smart is the film's weight of familiarity; the creeping sense that this caffeinated, cat-and-mouse narrative is actually turning round in circles.

So says the tagline of Hybrid, the latest horror title from G2 Pictures, which is out on DVD and Blu-ray this week.
Vengeful vehicles that have their own evil motives - along with ordinary engines used as deadly weapons by human drivers - have long been part of the genre.
Hybrid is now hoping to refuel the concept, proclaiming 'the new generation of killer car movies is here'.
Directed by Eric Valette (One Missed Call) and starring Shannon Beckner (American Pie Presents: Beta House) and Oded Fehr (The Mummy, The Mummy Returns) Hybrid is described as "a suspense-filled thriller, boasting stunning special effects and fast-paced action." The Blu-ray includes full stereoscopic 3D as well as the DVD version.
The synopsis is as follows:
Since the beginning of time a breed of creature has lived unnoticed among human civilisation. This perfect
Since the beginning of time a breed of creature has lived unnoticed among human civilization. This perfect predator has successfully camouflaged its existence through an unparalleled ability to change form. Today the hybrid creature has found the perfect form – the automobile – allowing both anonymity and mobility with the ability to hunt virtually undetected…until now.
