This is the story of two very different families. The Pavone are intellectuals and come from the bourgeoisie. The Vismara are fascists and proletarian. A trivial accident brings these two polar opposites together and sets them on a collision course. Soon it becomes clear... they all have secrets, no one is who they seem, but all are Predators.
Written, directed and starring Pietro Castellitto, THE PREDATORS had its world premiere in the Horizons section of the Venice Film Festival, where it won Best Screenplay.
“A relentlessly entertaining, fresh focused and fast-paced black comedy that is a lot of fun to watch.” –ScreenAnarchy
