Los Angeles area monster movie fans better keep a tight grip on their popcorn. Karnoctus is coming! On June 3, THE PREY: LEGEND OF KARNOCTUS, the new action-packed horror picture from the creative duo of Eric and Matthew Hensman is coming to the Regency Theatres Van Nuys Plant 16 for a weeklong run.

An homage to 1980s action movies and monster flicks, the film stars Nick Chinlund and genre favorite Danny Trejo as the leaders of a band of hardened mercenaries on a wartime heist. With the Taliban on their heels, they take refuge in a network of caves where they run into a contingent of retreating U.S. Army soldiers. When a rocket attack traps both groups in the underground labyrinth, they must work together to find a way out. However, they soon discover that the Taliban is the least of their worries when they find themselves stalked by a legendary monster known to the locals as Karnoctus.

Directed by Eric Hensman from a script by Matthew Hensman and Gus Sainz, THE PREY: LEGEND OF KARNOCTUS co-stars Adrian Paul (Highlander: The Series), Kevin Grevioux (Underworld), Fahim Fazli (Argo, Iron Man), Adolfo de la Parra, Justin Arnold, and Masika Kalisha.

Ahead of its June 3 opening, the film will have a red-carpet premiere at the Regency Bruin Theatre in Westwood on June 2 with a Q&A session to follow the screening. Following its limited theatrical run, THE PREY: LEGEND OF KARNOCTUS will debut on VOD and digital platforms on June 7. Be sure to check out the heart-stopping trailer below!
