After a fun night out, Ebele leaves her girlfriends to find her car in an underground car park. She soon realises she is not alone and someone is stalking her movements, but nothing is particularly what it seems.

prey 01

Prey is just over ten minutes long but manages to perfectly capture what it feels like to be a woman making her way home alone after a night out. The apprehension and feeling of vulnerability is down to a great script from Edith Nwekenta and great performances by Werucke Opia and O.C Ukeje. It also doesn’t go where you expect it to, a young lady being stalked in a car park may not sound like a particularly original idea but it leaves you guessing and manages to stir up some great tension.

prey 02

It’s a very stylish short that utilises different camera styles and angles to achieve a rather claustrophobic film that will have you gripped from start to end, and keep you thinking after the credits roll.
