Prey ★★★★


I thought it got off to a slow-ish - but still solid - start, but after that first half hour (which, in hindsight, establishes the character drama and dynamics quite well), this is just a non-stop thrill ride until the final frame. After 10 Cloverfield Lane and now this, it’s clear as day that Dan Trachtenberg is a master at turning potentially unnecessary franchise continuations into genuinely compelling genre art, and I need Hollywood to let him do whatever he wants for the rest of his career please and thank you!!!

(Also Amber Midthunder is like 90% of why this is as good as it is, and I hope every casting director in the industry was busting their ass this weekend to sign her to some of biggest franchises at the moment for her sake and ours!!!)
