The Prowler (1981)

the GOOD

6/10

Director: Joseph Zito

“Damn right it’s my fishing trip. And if you bother me about anything, Bill, I’ll kick your ass across the state line, okay?”
 This film was the reason Joseph Zito got to direct
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, which is one of the best parts of the series, three years later. The Prowler is a cruel slasher wich has become notorious because of the detailed special effects by Tom Savini, who believes this to be one of his best achievements. They were also the reason for which the film was banned in the UK and Germany during the 80s video nasty persecution. Like most slasher films, Prowler is weak in terms of story and characters but makes up with tention and originality. Genre fans will love it.
