The Naked Prey Photos

Movie Info

A safari guide (Cornel Wilde) cautions the hunting party he is leading to respect the African natives they encounter. Instead of heeding this advice, one of the party actively insults the tribe, which captures and kills the entire group. Only the guide is spared. But he is stripped of his clothing, and given a head start before the warriors give chase. Using his knowledge of the land and resourcefulness, the guide must make his way back to the closest British fort.

Audience Reviews for The Naked Prey

  • Jun 02, 2009
    No middle-aged, scion-of-Western-civilization, white guy is going to outrun, outsmart, and outlast a war party of Zulu tribesmen in a footrace across the Serengeti at the drop of a hat, which is exactly what this film portrays.The Naked Prey is not a horrible film, in fact it's downright entertaining, but let's be absolutely truthful about calling it for what it is. It is 96 minutes of pure, unadulterated machismo fantasy ... but we are talking about movies. Fantasy. Entertainment. And so, with that caveat in mind, let me add that this film heartily achieves just that. Hemingway would love this balls-to-the-wall adventure story.

    I suspect <i>The Naked Prey</i> is Cornel Wilde's answer to a mid-life crisis. It was his way of saying, "Look at me! I'm the producer, the director and the star." He even co-wrote the musical score. Wilde, as a character credited simply as 'the Man', spends the vast majority of his screen time running around Africa clad only in a small loincloth. Okay, so he had a pretty good physique for a 50 year old man, but come on! No middle-aged white man is going to outrun, outsmart, and outlast a war party of Zulu tribesmen in a footrace across the Serengeti. The Naked Prey is not a horrible film, in fact it's downright entertaining. But let's be absolutely truthful about calling it for what it is. It is 96 minutes of pure, unadulterated machismo.

    Well done and unique at the time. It's sometimes a stretch to believe the main character could survive all that, but the film works.

    An excellent chase film with some beautiful cinematography and atmosphere.
