In the Afghanistan desert, a group of mercenaries out for treasure complete their greatest heist. Seeking refuge from the hunting Taliban in a nearby cave, they are soon joined by retreating US soldiers, and both groups are trapped within by a rocket explosion at the cave’s entrance. The newly joined parties need to work together to find an escape through the labyrinth but soon realize they’re being tracked by a deadly beast that local legend calls Karnoctus; and they have become…the prey.
Stonecutter Media and Lennexe Films are excited to announce the limited theatrical and VOD release of The Prey: Legend of Karnoctus, from co-directors Eric Hensman and Matthew Hensman.
