RIP David A. Prior


We’ve received the sad news that director, screenwriter, producer and co-founder of the Action International Pictures David A. Prior has passed away.

He was best known for Deadly Prey and his recent sequel Deadliest Prey; other notable movies included Final Sanction and White Fury to name but a few.

There are several posts to David’s Facebook page stating that he passed away over the weekend after a long battle with failing health.

We don’t know the official cause yet but it will likely be officially announced soon.


Prior’s most recent film Assassin’s Fury was apparently in post-production.

RIP Mr. Prior and best wishes to all the friends and family at this time.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
