“Rumble in the concrete jungle”

Films: Prey (2016)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Civilized Area/Forest

Height/Weight: That of an average lion.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: If the Ghost and the Darkness have taught us a thing, it's that lions are definitely the terror of Africa. The lionesses may do all the hunting, but a lion is a lion, and there's a reason it's often called the king of beasts. For this male lion doesn't wait for a female to bring home the food. Far from it...

History: In the capital of Amsterdam, something dangerous is on the loose. Having escaped from the zoo, a particularly nasty and big lion is out and about killing whoever can't get away quick enough. But is it just one lion, or more?

Notable Kills: The tram massacre, the slow death of a guy on a wheelchair.

Final Fate: There are indeed two lions, the first of which is impaled through the back of the head. The last one is attacking in an ambulance before it gets pushed into the way of an incoming train, killing the last cat. But there are signs that there are other lions lurking in Amsterdam. And at this point honestly, that zoo needs better security.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Most of the time, it does indeed look like a hyper-aggressive male lion is attacking everything and leaving a bloody trail in its wake. The practical prop doesn’t work all the time, but when it does, you'll remember why the savannah isn't overpopulated with zebras. Next thing you'll know, there'll be a tiger in London or something.

Trivia: -Originally, the filmmakers wanted the effects guys who did work on "Life of Pi" to help, but as one might guess, it was a tall and costly order. So instead, they made a realistic prop with the help of a cheaper studio.

-Filming wildlife is stated to be illegal in Amsterdam. Or at the very least, the prospect of filming a live lion in the streets was. We believe at least someone thought that was a good idea.
