Let Us Prey
Let Us Prey (2015) film thoughts... In a small Scottish town, a police woman, who has been transferred there, starts her first night off with bringing in a driver who just hit a man... but the body is not found. After we meet a small cast of characters, both police and others, the man who was hit by the car is brought in. Who is he? He is not from around there and soon after, strange events begin which involve every individual in the police station. Why? What have they done? On the surface, everybody seems to be a “good sort” but as the night goes on...the dark secrets of all are exposed. Retribution will be exacted...
Not knowing anything going into this, I can say it was not what I was expecting. During the first 15 minutes, you get the feeling that it is going to be another Assault on Precinct 13. It's definitely not and the story takes the characters in all sorts of crazy directions. The film has a odd sort of look, artsy that breaks into jarring flashback/dream sequences throughout. The major problem I had with the film was the back and forth. It was hard at first to keep track of who was doing what in “their past”. It is very gory and violent, well done special effects. I'm glad to see that Pollyanna McIntosh was in a decent film for a change from the last couple, especially the absolutely awful The Bloodlands released earlier this year. Let Us Prey is an interesting concept, aside from the weird pacing, I did like it. (The film is available on Dark Sky Films)
