Survival thriller The Prey is making a killing at Fantasia Festival this month before its systemic commercial releases in Cambodia and other territories. The film is especially the latest work of director Jimmy Henderson who left a massive impression in 2017 with Jailbreak, adding it to the pantheon of martial arts action favorites.
Bloody Destiny star Gu Shang Wei leads the cast in what would ultimately be his first of two projects with the Hanuman helmer before moving onto their current endeavors with The Guardian which also has Andy On, Charlie Ruedpoknanon and Jailbreak star Jean-Paul Ly. Gu and Henderson have since toured quite a bit with The Prey on the festival circuit and will now pave the way for an October theatrical and VOD release from Dark Star Pictures.
Gu stars as an undercover cop swept into a rich man’s hunting game hosted by a maniacal prison warden when a botched raid wrongly lands him behind bars. The film hails from Altered Vision Films, Prince Social Marketing and Kongchak Pictures and will release September 19 in Cambodia, and has since rolled out an updated local poster for its release.
Check that out just below and stay tuned for an official date, key art and trailer from Dark Star Pictures, and check out my review from some months earlier by clicking here.
