A low-level crook must break out of jail in order to save his family from a deranged killer in the year's biggest thriller import, The Prey. Albert Dupontel gives an unforgettable performance as a "good" bad man in director Eric Valette's new hit, on Blu-ray and DVD from Cohen Media Group.
Bearing some of the traits of such modern classics as The Fugitive, Enemy of the State and Taken, The Prey makes its own mark as a dose of pure suspense. Franck Adrien (portrayed by Dupontel) is serving a short prison sentence for robbing a national bank, but before he got caught he managed to hide the money. And it's not just the police who are looking for the loot. Franck has unwittingly told his seemingly friendly cellmate Jean-Louis Maurel (Stéphane Debac) about the money, but soon Jean-Louis is cleared of the charges against him---rape and child molestation. His departing words as he leaves prison are a promise to Franck that he will look after his family.
Franck's qualms turn to genuine fear when he learns that Jean-Louis really is a serial killer, and Franck's family may be his next target. It's up to the bank robber to somehow break out and protect his family---and his hidden stash---while remaining one step ahead of the police. Alice Taglioni and Sergi López also star in this white-knuckled entertainment.
The Blu-ray and DVD include special bonus tracks including an interview with director Eric Valette and a making-of documentary and more.
