The Prey: Part One – The Influence

I’ve been wanting to do a little tribute to The Prey, one of the more underrated slashers, but as you may have noticed (or not!), I’m only on RS sporadically (something I truly regret), which means Prey week is looking like it might not happen. So instead, I thought I’d do my posts in piecemeal.

Today, I will present an interesting influence The Prey had on Wrong Turn:

The Prey:


I have always loved this odd camera shot featuring the back of this victim-to-be’s head. Moments away from terror and death, there’s something so strangely weird about this shot that compliments the surreal setting.

Wrong Turn:


Same hair, same camera shot. Co-inky-dink?
