A group of men are on safari. One of the party refuses to give a gift to a tribe they encounter. The tribe is offended, seizes the party, and one-by-one, kills all but one of the safari members in various creative and horrifying ways. The last surviving member is given “The Lion’s Chance” by the tribal leader to be hunted down by a party of tribal warriors. Naked and weaponless he is set loose, the hunters hot on his heels, beginning a life-or-death hunt through wild Africa.
From the arrow shot that starts the hunt to the final desperate dash, the film is a pulse pounding battle between people and nature. Daringly made with nudity and graphic violence, it also explores how out of place man is in his own environment. A survival masterpiece.
Mel Gibson’s film Apocalypto resembles The Naked Prey in its plot and in several similar scenes.
