While ostensibly sci-fi, Norman J. Warren’s PREY is a brooding study in sexual desire and loneliness, punctuated by shocking violence and suspense. Equal parts bloody and erotic, this British horror curio is now available in a director-approved restoration from its 35mm negative.
An alien craft carrying a being with fox-like features lands in the middle of rural England. After brutally murdering a young couple, the being animates himself into the body of the man he killed. Upon being discovered by a reclusive lesbian couple who mistake him for an injured drifter, they invite him to recover in their isolated home, unaware of his innate bloodlust.
