Howdy all you Supercultists out there on the interwebz!
I’m Bad Movie Professor Cameron Coker (BS in “David and Ted Prior” with a minor in “Beating people over the head with the limbs of other people”) and I’ll be posting my hype-tacular speeches every week along with some long lost speeches from past Supercult Shows!
From June of 2013 it’s the speech for one of my favorite Supercult films: Deadly Prey!
Colonel Hogan is still alive and just getting out of prison on parole, some 28 years after kidnapping and subsequently getting his ass handed to him by “the most perfect killer ever,” ex-marine and Vietnam veteran, Mike Danton. Now Hogan wants revenge and once again puts together a group of mercenaries, has Danton kidnapped, and releases him into the woods to hunt for sport. If at first you don’t succeed, right? But this time Hogan is funded by a huge Internet company in exchange for the chance to broadcast the hunt for Danton over the Internet, worldwide. If you thought the prey was deadly back in 1987, just wait till you see it in 2013. Happy Hunger Games! Uh, I mean, let’s watch Deadliest Prey!
Released straight to video in the Fall of 2013, Deadliest Prey is the sequel to the Supercult favorite, Deadly Prey. David A. Prior returns as Writer/Director while his brother Ted Prior reprises he role of Danton. Other notable cast members include B-Movie actors David Campbell returning as Hogan, Tara Kleinpeter as Sophia, and Cat Tomeny as Allison Danton. Director David Prior has written and directed over 30 films including such classics as “The Lost Platoon” about a group of WWII era vampires fighting against a corrupt vampire government in Nicaragua, and “Killer Workout” (also known as “Aerobicide” in some countries) that, as far as I can tell, is about spandex, leg warmers, nudity, and murder! David Prior even has a brief cameo in this film as “Man in Van”.

Basically, if you liked Deadly Prey, you’ll love Deadliest Prey. It’s basically more of the same, but this time purposely calling attention to it’s own ridiculousness. David Campbell steals every scene he’s in with his inexhaustible supply of one-liners while Ted returns to the task of mercilessly, methodically, and oftentimes repeatedly murdering all 15 extras labeled ‘Soldier’ on IMDB with a mixture of bullets, blades, and forest themed traps. It’s as if the Prior brothers spent the past 26 years sitting in a room brain storming ways that people can be killed with wood and bits of tree.
Screaming? Check! Sleeveless shirts? Double Check? Severed body parts flying all over the woods? You better believe it. It’s a shining example of the best of the worst in action films. Deadliest Prey knows exactly what it is: an homage to itself with its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. The only thing we’re really missing here is a nice pair of jorts that show off Ted Prior’s rippling thighs and hamstrings…but then again Ted’s well in his 50’s now.
Deadliest Prey marks a shining moment in the history of the Supercult Show. It’s the first true Supercult film that was released less than a year prior to our screening and as such is the only Supercult film that, as of our screening has no reviews and no audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Just imagine…it could also briefly be the highest rated Supercult film as well! I urge everyone to log into rotten tomatoes and rate Deadliest Prey as ‘Fresh’! Oddly enough, IMDB currently rates Deadliest Prey at a staggering 7.1! You know what else has a 7.1 on IMDB? Iron Man 2.
So tonight the Supercult show is proud to present Iron Man 2, minus the good actors, the special effects budget, the coherent plot, and the LAME PG-13 rating. In Vietnam he was the best…now he has to prove it again!
The Supercult show presents, Deadliest Prey!
