Director of “Prey,” Dan Trachtenberg, also directed "10 Cloverfield Lane" which focuses on a small group of characters working to survive in a deeply tense situation, and stars a young woman trying to fight her way out of a bad position. It's a tense, intimate film with a great cast and a wonderful sci-fi hook.

"Fury Road" inspired the director of “Prey,” as it’s an action spectacle with a cast that only speaks when they really need to. Like “Prey,” this movie focuses heavily on using action setpieces to drive home the story's emotion, and it's a breathtaking visual achievement all its own.

"Prey" has earned both acclaim and attention for its focus on making a film about Native Americans that stars actual Native actors. "Blood Quantum" also features an ensemble cast of Native actors facing off against a zombie virus that seems to be devastating the world.

On the surface, "Prey" and Steven Spielberg's 1975 classic, "Jaws," might not share much in common, but “Jaws” is a movie full of tense creature-driven sequences. What makes both these horror flicks scary and effective is that the terrifying creatures remain obscure, building suspense in every encounter.

If you're captivated by the American frontier setting of "Prey," be sure to catch director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s award-winning film, “The Revenant.” It tells the true story of Hugh Glass, a fur trapper in the early 1800s, who is left for dead after being mauled by a grizzly bear and uses stomach-churning realism in every scene.
