Prey, the latest installment to the Predator franchise, is finally available to watch on Hulu. The original Predator hit theatres in 1987 and was followed by Predator 2 (1990), Alien vs. Predator (2004), Alien vs. Predator: Requium (2007), Predators (2010), and The Predator (2018). Not only is Prey officially the best-reviewed movie of the entire franchise, but fans have nothing but praise for the prequel. Currently, the movie is up on Rotten Tomatoes with a 92% critics score and an 83% audience score. ComicBook.com's Spencer Perry gave the movie a 4 out of 5 and called it the "best entry" of the franchise since the original. Many people have taken to social media today to praise the Dan Trachtenberg-directed film and its star, Amber Midthunder.
Before checking out some tweets from Prey fans, you can read the film's official synopsis here: "Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, Prey is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries."

Just to say #PreyMovie is bloody awesome, absolutely thrilling— Tempest (@Tempest1211_) August 5, 2022
Two Awesome Versions
#PreyMovie was a brutal return to what is best about Predator! Possibly the best of the franchise since the original Arnold film. Watched the Comanche version which was really well done but I’m excited to see it again with the English track.
Also dogs are the best. pic.twitter.com/TOcd6oOzpl— JTE (@JTEmoviethinks) August 5, 2022

#PreyMovie makes a strong case for being one of the best movies I have seen so far this year. @DannyTRS killed it and Amber Midthunder is a revelation. Shame it's not playing in theaters but be sure to catch it on @hulu. pic.twitter.com/uCvmk6cXsO— Matthew A. Cherry (@MatthewACherry) August 5, 2022
Cade Is Correct
#PreyMovie is bloody, tense, inventive, but perhaps most surprisingly: emotional. It’s everything Predator should be and more
It may be one of the most unique and exciting things I’ve seen a big horror IP do in years without losing its identity in the processAugust 5, 2022
You Love To See It
