    As I know, AB plane to release The Prey (1980) on DVD, but they don't. Somebody know what happens and will be release or not?

    the master source was damaged and they couldn't work out all the screen artifacts, originally going to be part of their double feature sets!
    If you find it out on dvd from one of those generic companies, chances are it's a vhs dub.

    The film has too much padded nature footage.

    The Asian version is supposely uncut with extra gore never seen in the US version. I wouldn't even mind a VHS quality DVD of the unrated version. I just want it on DVD, damnit :(

    Who cares, this movie sucks ass. Booper71 is right, there is FAR too much footage of insects/animals in the forest for my taste. The ending was humorous, but otherwise The Prey is a great big bore.

    it is a bore but for some reason for me it has replay value i have a taped version on vhs quality is decent. anchor bay should of just released it on dvd. the worst dvd transfer i have ever seen is the children troma did a horrible job on it a whole 3-5 minute scene wasnt even in there i have a rhino vhs copy picture quality is perfect almost like dvd quality vhs

    May be this movie got a nature footage, but not so much as people says. And goddamn AB! Don't care about master tape quality, this movie needs a dvd release!

    It seems a little strange when they have indeed released poor transfer DVD's before, Season of the Witch being a prime example.

    AB should just release it with another film and call it a poor man's "double feature" - that would be fine with me! ;)

    Yea, btw I heard AB double feature Hellgate & The Pit since must contains The Prey instead Hellagte, but then smth happens and we have that we have.

    Didn't Code Red mention The Prey as a future title? I can't remember. But anyway, Anchor Bay also pulled the same announced/mysteriously vanished game on another 80's slasher. The Final Terror.

    And we're stuck with a terrible looking DVD from Trinity/905 for that film.

    Nope they didn't, after years of expecting it to. I finally waited so long that I ended up buying a DVD import of the film. It was only $5, so I would gladly buy it again if a decent R1 release "finally" came along! :eek2:
