Dick Maas’ Prey Unleashes Its First Batch of Images


Although Dick Maas originally started planning his killer lion flick Prey way back in 2013, he didn’t get the ball rolling until this year. If you’ve been biting your nails waiting for the first images from the movie to coming roaring across the internet, it’s finally time to give your bloody fingers a rest.

Below are the first five images from Maas’ Prey, which will likely arrive in the States on one format or another a some point next year. This is just an extremely wild guess on my part, of course, since no one has announced an official release date as of this writing.

While you’re waiting for more snazzy images or a proper trailer to arrive, busy yourself with this impossibly lengthy synopsis. Who knew a killer lion movie needed such a long description?

When the police discover the bodies of a slaughtered family living on a farm just outside of Amsterdam, they are clueless as to what happened. Lizzy, an attractive veterinarian working in the Amsterdam Zoo, confirms their suspicions; there must be a lion on the loose! And judging by the wounds of the mutilated victims, the lion must be big, strong and vicious!

Several more gruesome attacks follow and Lizzy is convinced there is a maneater roaming the streets of Amsterdam. She has trouble, however, convincing the authorities of the danger. When they finally set up a press conference to warn the public of the danger, their statement is met with disbelief. No one has seen the lion, and there is not much evidence of its existence. The public’s disbelief disappears when the lion goes on a murder spree in a streetcar full of people.

After a disastrous failed attempt by the nephew of the chief of police to hunt down and kill the lion, a friend of Lizzy’s, a famous English lion hunter, is flown in.
The police are stunned to see that the man has only one leg and is confined to a wheelchair. Slowly their worries disappear when the man seems to know what he is talking about and the power wheelchair, equipped with snowmobile tracks, makes him almost as fast as a speeding lion.

Still, the authorities are not convinced of the lion hunter’s skills. They send in an Army squad, but their mission ends in more bloodshed – albeit not the lion’s.

Finally the lion hunter gets permission to hunt down the lion in his own way. He succeeds in tracking down the lion to a University building and with Lizzy’s help he manages to kill the beast, losing his life in the process. When Lizzy accompanies her deceased friend in an ambulance to the hospital, the lion has one more surprise up his sleeve…
