Commercial Break: The Naked Prey (1966)

On the heels of The Hunger Games, comes a game of true survival.  Thanks to Gregoryno6  for the tip about this movie, we want to share ‘The Naked Prey’ from 1966.  Starring Cornel Wilde as the naked prey himself.  With innovative cinematography and full of racial stereotypes of the era, we’re really into this one!

A story of a group of men who take an African safari and one of the men offend the local tribesmen by not giving them a gift upon their arrival.  One by one, the men are killed by the African tribe, each murder more gruesome than the last, until there is only one left.  Alone, the lone hero must take The Lion’s Chance, nude, and try to save his own hide.

  1. The torture of the whites and their natives is a long disturbing scene. The whole of the village is there, either participating or cheering their heads off. Even the women get in on the act with the poor bastard who gets feathered up to look like a chicken.
    The Naked Prey is close on fifty years old now, but it hasn’t lost any of its impact. I had a couple of good repertory cinemas in Melbourne when I was growing up; I don’t recall ever seeing it on their schedules. Just too brutal for the 1980s, perhaps. its impact.
