Dangerous Prey is a lesser offering from Lloyd Simandl, the
master of Czechsploitation.
Shannon Whirry stars as a stunt woman staying in Europe. When her boyfriend is rousted by the police for terrorism,
also arrested and convicted of something or other. On her way to
prison, a secret group springs her, takes her to their laboratory,
and starts training her to be an assassin, for which she was both
the aptitude and
the attitude. Shannon and her new partner (Kiara Hunter) are given
lethal remote-controlled implants to control them, and are led to
believe that once they perform a successful mission, they are free.
Shannon figures out quickly that nobody has ever gone free.
There is a reasonably hot sex scene with Whirry at the start,
but the assassination scenes are not exploited, and there is too
much time spent chasing around through the usual familiar corridors
of Simandl's studio. Fans of Shannon Whirry, Kiara Hunter and Lloyd Simandl
may want it in their collections, but even they will be hard-pressed
to find much to enjoy, and the film is not recommended to others
outside those groups.
