Predator

Movie • 1987 • Action  

Report
Dutch and his group of commandos are hired by the CIA to rescue downed airmen from guerillas in a Central American jungle. The mission goes well but as they return they find that something is hunting them. Nearly invisible, it blends in with the forest, taking trophies from the bodies of its victims as it goes along. Occasionally seeing through its eyes, the audience sees it is an intelligent alien hunter, hunting them for sport, killing them off one at a time.
This movie contains 42 potentially triggering events.

A live scorpion is stabbed and then squashed.

From the director’s commentary: “Yes it was a real scorpion. It was a creature which was indeed hurt for this production, but it was only one.”

When one of the men is standing guard at night and you hear him attacking what he thinks is the Predator, it’s actually a wild boar that he is stabbing. You see its dead body afterward.

I lean towards yes in the case of Dutch. The Predator kills everyone else pretty quickly, but it beats Dutch for an extended amount of time. He is shown in obvious pain and being repeatedly punched, choked, thrown and terrorized by the Predator. At one point he has to crawl/drag himself away and the Predator still goes after him.

Not much. They don’t add much sound effects usually. Maybe a little “splash” of blood etc. But there is some. Like when he rips out a spine there are “cracks” and a little “squelch”.
