Second Class Cinema Episode 66: Deadliest Prey (2013)

DeadliestPreyEpImage2

At SCC this week, we finally got to watch a film we have been eager to see for a while... It was Erik's pick, and he chose 2013's Deadliest Prey- the follow-up to 1987's cult-classic action flick, Deadly Prey.

In the original film, we follow Mike Danton- Vietnam vet, and all-around American badass- as he's kidnapped and forced to be the "prey" for a group of ruthless mercenaries in training, led by madman Colonel Hogan. To make a totally awesome long story short: they kill Danton's wife, he destroys them all, Hogan goes to prison, the end. Or is it?

This movie picks up 25 years later, as Hogan is about to be released from prison. Suffice to say, he has not been reformed. In fact, he's spent the last 25 years plotting the ultimate revenge on Danton- kidnapping him, and once again plunging him into a deadly hunting game... Because apparently Hogan didn't learn his lesson the first time? Will Mike outsmart his hunters once again, and be able to save his family this time? Will he wear cutoff denim shorts to show off the fact that he totally never skips leg day? WILL THE MADNESS NEVER END?!

Join us on this episode as we discuss modernizing cult-classics, diaper-wearing bimbos, and whether or not we will see a third Deadly Prey film.

Trainwreck

No contemporary filmmaker has chronicled the messy human experience with the eye and ear of a comedic cultural anthropologist like JUDD APATOW. Hits as varied as those he’s directed, like Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and those he’s produced, like Superbad and Bridesmaids, are all unified by their honest, unflinching, comic look at how complicated it is to grow up in the modern world. Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham, among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in a film written by and starring AMY SCHUMER (TV’s Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.
