Prepare for gratuitous levels of violence and nudity as we show two cult actions classics from 1987 as part of Scalarama 2014 – David A Prior’s Deadly Prey and Andy Sidaris’ Hard Ticket To Hawaii!
Two films! Two action-packed classics! Equal opportunity nudity for all!
Deadly Prey (1987): From the director of ManKillers and the producer/director of Space Mutiny, comes a true action classic of the 1980s. It tells the story of an elite squad of mercenaries who are kidnapping innocent people off the streets of Los Angeles in order to hunt them for sport. Unfortunately, they kidnap Mike Danton – who just happens to be one of the greatest warriors who has ever lived and turns the hunters into the hunted… while wearing only a pair of denim cutoffs!
Hard Ticket To Hawaii (1987): Part of Andy Sidaris’ ‘Girls, Guns and G-Strings‘ collection, Hard Ticket To Hawaii is best known for its ‘frisbee death scene‘ which has made it a hit on YouTube. The film follows government agents Donna and Taryn (played by Playboy centrefolds Dona Speir and Hope Marie Carlton) who uncover a diamond smuggling plot. Before they know it, they’re being pursued by hit men, a deadly female body builder and a killer snake that has been infected with toxic waste!

Deadly Prey: Colonel Hogan is a ruthless former military officer who trains a large group of former U.S. Servicemen as mercenaries by having them hunt down and kill people they abduct off the streets of Los Angeles. However, Hogan and his men meet their match when their latest kidnap victim turns out to be a tough gung-ho marine named Mike Danton!
Hard Ticket To Hawaii: Two drug enforcement agents are killed on a private Hawaiian island. Donna and Taryn, two operatives for The Agency, accidentally intercept a delivery of diamonds intended for drug lord Seth Romero, who takes exception and tries to get them back. Soon other Agency operatives get involved, and a full-scale fight to the finish ensues, complicated here and there by an escaped snake made deadly by toxic waste!
