From the FANGORIA Vault: “PREDATOR” (1987)
It’s Christmas time, dear FANGORIA readers! And as so many of you ready yourselves from a visit from old Saint Nick, I’m sure you’ll each be preparing your stockings with a horror movie or two! And while rooting through our records, I remembered that one of the most anticipated 2013 Christmas releases for the horror fan would be the 3D Blu-ray reissue of one of this writer’s favorite horror/sci-fi hybrids, PREDATOR!
Now, seeing that the film has been twice released on the format to fan criticism (as the first edition was too soaked by grain, the other almost plastic looking in its digital noise reduction), perhaps this 3D transfer will be the definitive package for PREDATOR fanatics. Nevertheless, we discovered a wonderful wealth of promotional photos from the bloody, machismo-soaked scarer. Now, I know there aren’t shots of the monster himself, hidden to preserve the shock of its revelation for the film, but these rare photographs show the badass cast in all of their glory!
