I've been a fan of horror movies for 20 years now and during that time have seen many B-Grade horror films that, despite lower production values and below average acting, were enjoyable, Prey for the Beast sadly is not one of them.
The basic story follows a group of guys who are eager to head out on a camping trip to help their friend Budd get over his divorce with a cheating wife. While out in the woods they come across another group, four beautiful young ladies, who are away for a weekend of fun in the wild. After discovering a body in the wilderness they discover they aren't alone as a hulking beast picks them off one by one.
The creature costume and the gore effects aren't overly good, but being a b-grade horror on a small budget they fit the bill reasonably well. The real problem with Prey for the Beast is the acting and dialogue, not one of the actors manage to give the impression they are in a fight for their lives, nor any concern for their fallen friends and the dialogue comes across as this disjointed mess with very little relevance to the events that are happening around them.
Overall Prey for the Beast takes a tried and true horror formular and manages to make a complete and underwhelming mess of it, hard to recommend to even the biggest lover of b-grade blood and gore flicks.
