PREDATOR / Amercent Films, American Entertainment Partners L.P. - 1987
It's Friday the 4th, so, must be time for this wild adventure. The story goes like this... A team of special force ops is led by a tough soldier, Major "Dutch" Schaefer. They are ordered to go on a rescue mission to see if there are any survivors of a helicopter downed over a remote area of the South American jungle. Soon after they land though, the team discovers that they have been sent in under false pretenses when they find themselves being hunted by something not of this world!!
The movie stars Arnold (TERMANATOR) Schwarzenegger, Carl (ROCKY) Weathers and our hero, former WWF tough guy and Minnesota Governor, Jesse (DEMOLITION MAN) Ventura!
The heavily armed, buff team land and start their search for the supposedly lost CIA dude, but dammit, where in the Hell is he?!
Nice shot of Carl Weathers! Get this, the very first acting credit he received was for the classic war movie, MAGNUM FORCE, in 1973!
And, here's the man, Jesse Ventura, in a nice pose! He said that Arnie was disappointed that his arms were bigger than his! Pretty funny...
Then, crew members are attacked and they fire their weapons at an unknown target!
In other words, what in the freakin' Hell's going on around here?!!
Well, maybe because the damn thing they're fighting is, you know, fairly invisible!
So, Arnie is the last living member of the crew. He takes his famous mud bath to avoid detection by the monster, but, the thing finds him anyway!
We'll end with this nice portrait of the Predator. There are plenty more Predator flicks out there, including the weird fest, PREDATOR vs. ALIEN! Be back tomorrow for more cool junk from The Dungeon!!
