Directed by Joseph Zito
Avalon Bay, 1945: On the night of her graduation dance, young Rosemary and her date are brutally murdered by a prowler thought to be a jilted soldier home from the war. Thirty years later, the dance is held again for the first time since that horrific evening, but something else may have also returned... Tonight, the teens of this sleepy town will meet their grisly ends at the hands – and pitchfork, blade and more – of The Prowler. Directed by FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER's Joseph Zito, THE PROWLER has risen to slasher prominence thanks to stunning FX from makeup legend, Tom Savini
A killer returns to a sleepy town thirty years after his haunting massacre.
Cast: Vicky Dawson, Christopher Goutman, Lawrence Tierney
Savini called it his best and he wasn’t joking. The death scenes in this are memorable, brutal and look great. Unfortunately the movie itself drags and adds and then instantly drops random plot points making it a bit of a slog.
Kinda boring. Good kills but not Savini’s best IMO. Prob watch it once and that’s all you’ll ever need. Feel like an opportunity was missed having a killer soldier using a pitchfork. It was such a misplaced signature weapon given that it’s not something you link with a soldier. Oh well, give it a watch.
Classic 80’s campy slasher with gore by Tom Savini. What more could you want?!
The practical effects were really cool but the movie over all was kinda slow.
If you like bad acting and gratuitous nudity this movie may be for you. This just isn't for me. I like cheesy 80's movies but you have to give me more than this. The kills are pretty cool though. I'll give it an extra skull for that.
