The Hunt Is On.....,
This review is from: Prowl [DVD] (DVD)
A young woman, Amber (Courtney Hope) persuades some friends to take her on a road trip to Chicago where she is looking for a new apartment. Before she leaves her "mother" tells her a secret that has been kept hidden from her.
When the car breaks down, her fear that something is keeping her in small town America resurfaces, then a passing trucker Bernard agrees to take them to Chicago in the back of his vehicle, we soon know Bernard is telling porkies and our scared teens find themselves dropped off in an abandoned warehouse where they find they are being hunted by a group of fast moving vamps.
The blurb on the front says "About as tense as it comes", hardly, the story is pretty basic and you may cotton on to the clue that ties in to the "surprise" ending which leaves it open to an expected sequel.
Like many movies of this genre the hand held camera work is over done and annoying, we get the idea now, we don't need shaky cameras to make us feel part of the action. We can use our imagination. Concentrate on the story and get the acting right and you don't need cameramen to run round like reporters in a war zone.
The only extras are trailers for other After Dark movies.
Just about scrapes in at 3 stars I didn't hate it enough to give it 2 stars but I'll be in no hurry to watch it again.
