Predator / Yautja (Movie Monster)


It’s time for a Monday movie monster and this one is one of my many favourites! It is the Yautja or known better simply as Predator!

The predator or yautja is a fictional extraterrestrial species that first appeared in the 1987 movie Predator. It is portrayed as a hunter that almost only kills if it will gain honor from it. For instance if a human doesn’t have a weapon it usually won’t waste its time trying to kill it. In the AvP movies it was revealed that the predators visited Earth thousands of years ago where they were worshipped as gods and used humans to breed aliens!

 
The predator has a appeared in a lot of videogames and movies since the 1987 movie. Lately people have begun associating this extraterrestrial with another, the Alien! This is because the popularity of the Alien vs. Predator games spawned 2 movies with this theme. I kind of liked the first AvP but I don’t really care about the second, maybe it just needs to grow on me, I don’t know! None of the AvP movies come close to Predator (1987) or Alien (1979) just to be clear.

I haven’t seen the new Predators movie yet, so I can’t really give my opinion of that yet guys!
- That’s it for today. If you have any suggestions for new monster posts feel free to post in the comments :)

  3. I really enjoyed the "Predators" movie, it's worth a watch unlike the previous movie...Robert Rodriguez's as producer was a great asset...Troublemaker Studios did an excellent job in enviroment development. :D

  4. Predator always scared the crap outta me. I heard the new one was meh. Like the iphone game though. hmmm, how 'bout any the monsters from the 5th Element. A tad obscure though.

  12. Have you heard about Jupiter's moon Europa, or read the NASA Event where they are gonna talk about new evidence that will impact the search for extraterrestrials?

  13. I love the Predator movies - never knew their 'name' before - thanks. I love monsters in general. It's the wackos wielding knives and axes like leather face that freak me out...this being the year of the zombie it's been difficult not to mock them -- too slow and mindless to fully feel the horror...
