Deadly Prey Sequel: Special Forces Pre-Mission Go-To Motivator Now Available
"Deadliest Prey" is the sequel to the 1987 cult action classic "Deadly Prey." Nemesis Colonel Hogan is released from prison after 30 years and vows revenge on Mike Danton.
Hollywood, CA – October, 2013. For years, a certain Special Forces platoon, has watched the 1987 action film Deadly Prey to get pumped up prior to deploying on missions throughout the Middle East and Afghanistan. This Deadly Prey viewing tradition has been handed down from platoon member to platoon member over the years.
Deadly Prey, for those who haven’t seen the movie, is one part ‘The Most Dangerous Game,’ one part ‘Rambo’ and one part 1980s camp. The actual narrative of Deadly Prey is pretty simple, ex-marine Mike Danton (Ted Prior) is kidnapped and taken to a mercenary training camp where Colonel Hogan (David Campbell) is in charge. Mike is then hunted by the mercenaries in a perverse war game until the tables are turned and Danton begins to hunt his hunters.
Since the release of Deadly Prey, a relationship developed between Mike Danton (Ted Prior) and members of this Special Forces platoon. In fact, largely due to the urging of the platoon (quite possibly, the movie’s most enthusiastic fan base); David A. Prior (writer and director), Ted Prior (as Mike Danton), David Campbell (as Hogan) and Fritz Matthews (as Thorton), reunited to produce the movie’s sequel, Deadliest Prey, which will be released on November 1, 2013.
Deadliest Prey begins 28 years after Deadly Prey as Colonel Hogan gets released from prison. He has one thought in mind, to finish what he started. He immediately kidnaps Mike Danton and the deadly chase is on—this time streamed live via the Internet.
When notified that the sequel was about to be released, the Special Forces platoon said “Can’t wait to get back to the States and watch Deadly Prey and Deadliest Prey back-to-back.”
