If you haven’t got time to bleed you might have time for this new fan film.


Its been 5 years since we last saw the Predator in the supposed franchise killer “Predators”. While I loved the heck out of that film, the Box Office take wasn’t big enough for Fox to make another. Insert “Predator – Dark Ages” a fan film made by true fans of the franchise and taking the alien to new territories we have yet to see on film. Medieval times, knight of the round table style.

Its great to see the franchise be taken in such a new way, not just an attempt to recreate the magic the original had.

“Throughout time the Predator has always looked for the greatest warriors to fight in battle, and with this short film we will see him put to the test against the some of the best history has ever seen, the Templar Knights. Their battle with the Predator is the thing Myths and Legends are made of.”


Dark Ages originally started as a Kickstarter in 2014 and since then has raised over $10,000 aud. breaking the barrier for the kickstarter set in stone that the film would be made. For there tiny budget, (for such a big ambition) small handful of actors and crew its incredible to see such a well made film be created. This is up there with the greats like “Batman: Dead End” and “Star War: Downunder”. The screenplay plays some nice homages to the original but doesn’t do it in a way that cries out “please let me be in your team”.

With it’s run time just under 30 mins I would recommend Chromecasting or any other way you have at your means to watch this bad boy on your TV Screen. This is highly worth the watch.
