 Case: In "The Prowler" a masked killer robed in uniform of the U.S. Army of the second world war mercilessly slaughters young a College during a dinner dance.

Another cult slasher from the heyday of early 80 's then you type produce a series of original films, dynamic shaken. "The Prowler" is remembered not for his script that actually nothing special or different from the scenarios of relatives movies, but for the dreadful effects of craftsman Tom Savini. Indeed the American "efetzis" situated in excellent form, delivers some of the most realistic effects of his career giving verisimilitude and timelessness in "The Prowler", which in terms of imaging violence rivals comfortably any slasher.

The film starts off with real footage of the end of World War II and in particular by the return of American soldiers to their homeland in an atmosphere of celebration.

Horror Trivia

With the exception of the scene for disclosure of the murderer, the figure of the remainder is played by the film's Assistant Director, Peter Guiliano.

Trivial things but totally delicious. The killer may not constitute the classical figure like Michael Mayers or Jason Voorhees for example, but it is not indifferent. The total of soyloypi, consisting of military uniform, helmet, shotgun and bayonet fork presage great slaughter and ensure the fun of fanatical slasher-akia. From the abundance of killer singles an homage to the famous shower scene from ' Psycho ' (only here used the fork as a lethal weapon instead of a knife), a not-so-realistic but creepy «passage» 42(h) to skull from top to bottom and a shocking breakup head! As protagonists (a Yes you should find some) have set the local assistant sheriff and a young Coed who investigate the situation worried that the killer is going to return to the scene of the crime. Indifferent both but who cares in such a bloody spectacle? This claim rather the role of protagonist! To the end that the anxiety is escalating, the film becomes even better although the identity of the murderer is not difficult to define.

Slasher fans should see – at least those who haven't done-but the film is ideal for fans of extreme cinema in General, because of the detailed violent scenes, a courtesy of Lord of bloody effects Tom Savini. It is no coincidence that he considers his work about "The Prowler" as the best of his career.
