Storyline

While working in a dam in Africa, the American hydraulic engineer Tom Newman brings his family to spend a couple of days in the Leopard's Rest Lodge. His fourteen year-old daughter Jessica is having friction with her stepmother Amy since she does not accept the divorce of her parents. On the next morning, Amy, Jessica and her brother David go in a game drive with a ranger while Tom goes to the dam. While driving off-road, David asks the ranger to stop the jeep to go to the "toilet", and unexpectedly they are attacked by a group of starving lions that kill and eat the ranger. Amy, Jessica and David are trapped in the jeep and stalked by the wild lions. When Tom returns to the hotel and finds that his family has not returned from the game, he asks for help to the experienced hunter and guide Crawford and together they seek Tom's family. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Low budget and cheap, but very entertaining concept
9 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed Prey. This film managed to create a good atmosphere that commingled with how the story was told. For me, I thought this film was really good, considering that there are no other animal attack films in it's genre. To go with such an animal as a lion for your script, they pulled off this film exceptionally well, no matter how bad it appears at times.

I love how when the lions would knock the people down a peg, they would build themselves back up using their surroundings, which some people might call them stupid, I call them swift and on their feet, for people who have just been stranded out in the safari. If you have not seen this film, pay no attention to the rating and negative comments. If you like animal attack movies good enough, you will watch this one, because it's a movie not to miss for rare film seekers, and if you have seen it, I beg of you, please watch it again and you'll see just how good of a movie it is.

On another note, I watched this movie with my friend and her family and they liked it a lot. Take it for what it is.
