Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, Hulu’s’ Prey’ is a science fiction action film. It’s the fifth entry in the ‘Predator’ film series and serves as a prequel to the previous four films. Set in the Northern Great Plains in September 1719, the story revolves around Naru, a young female Comanche warrior. Naru (Amber Midthunder) aspires to be an accomplished hunter and hopes to earn the respect of other hunters of her clan, especially her brother Taabe. While hunting a cougar along with her brother and other members of their clan, Naru begins noticing certain anomalies. Her concerns are initially dismissed, prompting her to venture out on her own. Naru soon realizes that she must be strong to protect her clan from harsh nature, wild animals, fur trappers, and a hunter from another world.
