Thirty-five years ago, John McTiernan’s uncompromising sci-fi thriller showed us exactly how thick an atmosphere can be created when you throw a bunch of mercenaries, Arnold Schwarzenegger and a killer alien with lethal instincts into an impenetrable jungle. There’s not much talking in Predator nor are there any plot twists but it’s still impossible to take your eyes off the film: the minimalist cinematic language, with its restless camerawork and paranoid music, is entirely sufficient for an experience that, even more than three decades after its premiere, is thoroughly immersive, terrifying and also unprecedentedly physical. Maximum tension with minimum resources.
