The fifth installment of the Predator franchise winds the clock back 300 years, to a time when the Comanche rule the forests and prairies. The movie follows skilled female warrior/badass Naru, played by actress Amber Midthunder (herself a member of the Fort Peck Sioux Tribe), as she fights to protect her tribe against an high-tech alien and smash the patriarchy.
Prey compares very favourably to John McTiernan’s 1987 film. The Telegraph says that the film offers up "the most thrilling opponent the Predator's had since Arnold Schwarzenegger" and raves about Midthunder's "thunderously bloody" performance as Naru. The Independent is similarly smitten, adding that Prey is a "brutal, pulse-quickening Predator prequel" that "succeeds by ditching the nostalgia".
If you like intense, axe-based action Prey could be perfect weekend viewing. Better yet, viewers in the US can watch Prey free with Hulu's 30-day trial. Travelling abroad? Here's how to watch Hulu from wherever you are.

Watch Under the Prey from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have a Hulu account, you won't be able to access it when outside the US. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. It creates a private connection between your device and the internet. There are lots of VPNs to choose from, but we think ExpressVPN is one of the very best...
