Predator: The Quietus (1988) has nothing to do with the Predator franchise, and from what I can tell, it’s also called Moonstalker (1986). Low budget movies can be hit or miss, and this one is better than what I’d expect.

Predator: The QuietusI admit, I have this knack for finding the absolute strangest movies ever made, and this has to be close to the top of the list. It stars Cliff Twemlow under the alias Mike Sullivan; I’m not sure why, it’s not like his movies aren’t B or lower. He plays Daniel Kane, a monster hunter of sorts, who teams up with Kelly O’Neill (Cordelia Roche), an Enquirer reporter to figure out who or what is slaughtering people.

The most interesting character in the film is Wilbur Sledge played by Darryl Marchant; he’s exiled himself to the woods to protect them from development and people abusing the land. He has animal friends and talks with them.

When the beast is shown, I’m not sure what it is, besides weird looking, then as I get a better look I realize that it has to be Rawhead Rex’s cousin. The more I saw of it, the more I liked what I was seeing and what it was doing and why.

3.5 Stars

While I did enjoy Predator: The Quietus, the roughness didn’t allow me to give it more than 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
