A good film that looks and feels like it was made in the 70's - in a good way!
Full disclosure - Sandy Collora and I go way back, and have been struggling film makers for most of our adult lives. Also, I was not that big of a fan of "Batman: Dead End" - you throw The Joker, a Predator, and an Alien into a short film and show it at Comic Con and the fanboys were bound to loose their minds. However, I thought the trailer for "World's Finest" rocked - it looked like a trailer for an actual feature and was far more refined than "Dead End", at least in my opinion.
As a filmmaker, you dread watching a friend's movie because if the movie sucks, you don't know what on earth you will say. Well, after finishing "Hunter Prey", I breathed a big sigh of relief because the movie is good, solid and strong all the way through. It looks and feels and sounds like a movie shot in the late 60's or 70's, and I mean that in a good way - the compositions are widescreen and flawless, the story is character-driven, and the effects are used when needed. The music is also rich and orchestral, a feature sorely lacking in most low-budget features. The movie takes an inspirational page out of "Planet of the Apes" and goes from there.
I won't give away any plot details, but don't go into this looking for rock-'em sock-'em "Avatar" action - this movie is mature and evenly paced, and uses its wares sparingly, surprising and twisting as it goes. If you are looking for gore or an "in your face" music- video style, go rent a modern horror re-make. But if you like kickin' your Sci-Fi old-school, then the line for "Hunter Prey" forms to the left.
Good job, Sandy!!
