      Meydiana R What's the point of this movie?! Warning: Spoilers Why is this movie bad? From beginning to end, everything is just lacking in effort. Everything is overacted, everything is ridiculous, none of the character's actions make any sense, the one bit of cgi looks like something from "sliders" (the 90's TV show). It's just consistently awful, always, in every seen. Constant cringe worthy lines. I was tricked by a review. From now on when I receive advice on what constitutes a good movie, I'm going to click on the author's name and see what other movies they consider "good." There is no substitute for good taste. This movie was terrible and cringe worthy, from start to finish. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review david b Not bad. Simple enough story, ending was a bit strange though. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I found Let Us Prey to be an above average horror thriller. Liam Cunningham and Pollyanna McIntosh lead a strong cast. The plot is dark and interesting if a bit convenient/contrived. More coherence in the story and more from Cunningham's "number 6" character would have been welcome. Otherwise worth a watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member this starts out seeming like a great premise, but is pretty shallow and relies on escalating violence/chaos to close off the plot. it gives away all of it's twists very early on, yet still tries to pull them out as a reveal for dramatic effect later, in some cases using multiple less than subtle flashbacks before and after a character verbally explains the event. some of the sfx are good, some are pretty bad, and the action choreography is pretty heavy handed/corny. something that bothered me: it was impossible to tell the two female leads apart for the majority of the film unless they were standing next to each other. there were many flashbacks throughout the film which made it very confusing when two events were depicted happening at once - the first time we see the second girl, it looks like a flashback or forward of the same girl having sex in the car as in the precinct until the second girl walks through the door. the actresses don't even look similar IRL, but the hair and makeup people did a very bad job of making them look distinct, as well as dim lighting exacerbating the issue. this doesn't really ruin the movie for me, but every time they are shown together i have to do a double take and ask myself which one i was just watching in the previous shot. this is not really anything as good as what the critic reviews are saying - certainly not a masterpiece. i don't feel that i wasted my time, but it's not really very deep or nuanced. SFX were hit or miss, gunshot wounds and blood splatters looked incredibly fake like they had cheaped out by diluting the stuff with water. in one shot a woman is supposed to be hit in the back with a shotgun, but she turns too early and the pack in her shirt clearly goes off at the wrong angle, but they kept the shot anyways. she basically gets shot in the side, the wound appears in the center of her back, and the blood comes out at a 90 degree angle from the shot's trajectory. later on the wound is in her lower side around her right kidney, making it seem like they changed the location to suit the earlier mistake, but bizarrely still didn't maintain continuity. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member So generic it was silly. Really not very well done, can't think of a single reason to recommend Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Why is this movie bad?

      Tara Brady Irish Times Working with wunderkind cinematographer Piers McGrail, O'Malley keeps the carnage coming and images memorable. Rated: 3/5 Jun 13, 2015 Full Review Mark Beaumont NME (New Musical Express) Ludicrous UK horror film with a twist you see coming from the very first shot... Jun 2, 2021 Full Review C.H. Newell Father Son Holy Gore Great performances, nasty horror, and a rumination on the divide between good and evil. Rated: 3.5/5 May 7, 2019 Full Review Abbie Bernstein Assignment X Let Us Prey is one of those idiosyncratic indie horror oddities. It is by turns inventive, pretentious, trippy, mis-structured, sometimes visually wrenching, with a dark mood that lingers in the mind well after it ends. Rated: B Dec 18, 2018 Full Review Deirdre Crimmins Film Thrills The mystery of the stranger is enough to stick with the story, but the dirty cop portrayals were clichéd and uninteresting... [but] the second half is a bloody good time. Aug 21, 2018 Full Review Donnchadh Tiernan Film Ireland Magazine Let Us Prey is a great day in the cinema for horror-fans and should probably be avoided by flirters with the genre, though I'll steer no one clear from this if I can help it.
