Also Known as Rosemary"s Killer directed by Joseph Zito(Friday the 13th The Final Chapter) with gore effects by Tom Savini. This is a rarely seen little number which in places is very gruesome (the shower scene) if a little slow in places.The "plot" such as it is starts in 1945 with Rosemary and her date murdered at the graduation dance by her jilted boyfriend a solider on shore leave. The killer was never found!!!
30 years on the graduation dance is back on but someone else has also returned. Watch the population of Avalon bay meet their BLOODY end at the hands of THE PROWLER!!
PS Great Extras.

Format: DVD
If you're making a list of must-see 80s slashers, The Prowler should definitely be one of them. Yeah, the plot isn't all that great, the pace of the movie drags in places, and several questions ultimately go unanswered - but I was genuinely surprised at the identity of the killer (who is pretty intimidating in his killing garb), the lead actress is fairly cute, and - as is always important for us gorehounds - I was absolutely delighted at the spectacle of blood and gore on display. The filmmakers really let makeup/special effects genius Tom Savini go hog wild. Where other slasher movies give you a quick cut shot of a knife slicing a neck open or a pitchfork going all the way through a body, The Prowler lingers deliciously on such gruesome sights. You get to see that last little convulsion as he raises a skewered body up, with the tines of the pitchfork scraping against the tile; you watch him working his knife back and forth as if he has trouble removing it from his victim's neck - it's these little details that show you just how much Savini cares about his gruesome craft. Admittedly, one death is wholly and patently fake, but you still have to appreciate the effort and intent of the shot.

The story begins in 1945, when a young woman and her beau are ruthlessly murdered on the night of the big college graduation dance; while their killer was never caught, it is made quite obvious that the murderer was the young woman's former boyfriend, to whom she had sent a Dear John letter while he was still fighting overseas. 35 years later, the college prepares for the first graduation dance since that awful night.

This is another awesome slasher horror movie from the 80s, if your into gore movies then this has some brilliant bloody kills from the master of all gore Tom Savini. The story is good and plays out well, your usual slasher 80s horror scenario!! Worth picking up if your into this sort of thing, im basing my review on the region 1 version titled The Prowler not on the UK version.

The Prowler opens in 1945. The GIs have returned, the dance is in full swing. But one returning hero is not a happy bunny. Jilted by his fiance, Rosemary, this Dear John exacts a blood thirsty revenge. Then 35 years later, 1980, the local college kids are about to hold a graduation party and someone is getting nostalgic.

Clad in combat fatigues, face hidden and armed with a shotgun, pitchfork and huge bayonet The Prowler cuts an imposing figure that tops most of the more celebrated slasher icons. Though there are not many deaths, they have a gloating quality that, in combination with the almost Scooby Doo plotting and the perfectly realised 40s prologue, gives the film a really unbalanced feel. Make-up effects genius, Tom Savini considers the Prowler his best work.
Vicky Dawson makes a decent final girl. Cindy Weintraub (Humanoids From the Deep) and David Sederholm(Coma Guy in an episode of Friends) are amongst the college kids. The film also features a few old-time movie stars, including Farley Granger (Strangers on a Train, Rope) and Lawrence Tierney(Reservoir Dogs)'

One of the interesting features of slasher films was the use of live bands rather than hits of the day. The obligatory house band in this one is Nowherefast and they sound a bit like Blue Oyster Cult circa Secret treaties on the three featured tunes: A View through a Tear/Hard Way/Disco Blood.

Format: DVD
You may remember this released as Rosemary's Killer, in the UK, in the early 80s. If it was'nt for the graphic violence, this movie could pass itself of as an episode of Murder, She Wrote. The premise is: GI, receives Dear John letter from his sweetheart, whilst he's fighting in World War II, overseas. Upon return, he discovers she's romantically involved with another guy; this tips him over the edge into being an unhinged maniac. At a Graduation Dance he disposes of them with a pitchfork, dressed in military fatigues and wearing a gas mask.

The film then transports itself to 1980, whereupon the same guy (whose identity is'nt revealed til the end) goes on another killing spree around the time of another Graduation Dance. I'm not going to give any spoilers, but I enjoyed this film, as it's a good mystery movie, however i have the un-cut version, and it's pretty nasty in places.

This 80's slasher flick is definitely worth checking out especially if you're a slasher fan or like Tom Savini's gory special fx, The prowler was directed by Joseph Zito, same director who did Friday The 13th part 4 which was the best film in the series in my opinion, so you probably know how good this is going to turn out. It is a great example of a slasher flick with the slow pace so it could build up the tension and suspense and it has alot of gruesome death scenes in it, I'm not sure why critics hated this but then again those same critics wouldn't know a good horror film if it hit them in the face.

I can't pick a favorite death scene but I would have to say when the killer stabs one of the students on top of the head with a large knife and having his eyes roll back, very nice and it looked gory as hell. In 1945 during a college graduation dance a young woman and her lover are violently murdered by an unknown killer, 35 years later the killer comes back to the campus to murder off unsuspecting students when they try to throw another dance. The killer has a really cool army fatigue outfit and wears a gas mask, which makes him one of the best looking and most memorable serial killers in the 80's slasher genre.

There's a blond girl who teams up with the local sheriff in order to catch the killer you also have some typical 80's teens getting drunk and partying as they get picked off one by one. I also liked the part where one girl gets impaled by a pitchfork in the shower, a very viscous and bloody death scene I might add. Anyway I highly recommend this film to slasher/horror fans. I also enjoyed the special features especially the behind the scenes with makeup wizard Tom Savini.
