the use of very shaky camera shots and flashes of scenes so you really can't see the effect during a death scene made me wonder what they were trying so hard to hide.
Yes ,I understand the newer fast moving creature aspect of some of today's films although the ones I have seen have allowed me to see it clearly enough to make out what's going on and what they look like.
This is not a body count movie,it becomes something more and it has a twist of course which most people will see coming well before you are suppose to to get the reveal.
It was fairly clever but not really that fresh.
What I did see of the creatures was pretty good,they looked somewhat like the Vampires in 30 days of night.
There is some seemingly unnecessary build up in the beginning but it all played out well.
Some people might love it,some just think it ok.
The gore factor was about a 6 out of 10..Like I stated earlier, most of the best death scenes aren't viewable and some are off camera.but the last 20 minutes are pretty interesting and fast paced.Some of the scenarios during the film while watching I was thinking GTF outta here,this is ridiculous all made sense in the end.
The most debilitating aspect of PROWL is the overly chaotic camera work which makes it almost impossible to figure out what's going on. And it's flat, abrupt finale is disappointing. The acting is acceptable but no one stands out.
While better than some direct to DVD films, I had hoped PROWL would equal the excellence of HUSK but no such luck. Let's hope future ADO's are stronger.
The premise of Prowl has Amber (Courtney Hope - Mob Rules), who is bored with her small town life, her job as a butcher, and is being pulled to the big city life. The first step is to find a place to live, and she has one if she can make to the apartment manager, with the deposit, tomorrow. Her friends decide to give her a ride, and make a road trip of it. So Susie (Ruta Gedmintas - Miss Conception), Ray (Jamie Blackley - Myths), Peter (Joshua Bowman - 13 HRS), Eric (Oliver Hawes - film debut), and Fiona (Perdita Weeks - The Tudors) load the necessities needed to go to the big city for a day - spare clothes, smokes, music, and alcohol. As can be predicted the car breaks down as they leave town, and they accept a ride from Bernard (Bruce Payne - Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God), a semi-truck driver, who just happens to be heading to the city as well. So they load themselves into the back of the trailer, break out the party, and enjoy the ride. At least until they realize that they are in a bad part of town and Bernard isn't stopping when they ask, even with threats of the release of body fluids. When the truck is parked, the door is opened into the loading bay of an abandoned slaughterhouse. This is where anything I say now spoils the movie, so just think "not what I was expecting" and unseen twist. Enjoy.
Prowl could have been a completely different type of horror film, easily slipping into the torture porn genre.Read more ›
Amber (Courtney Hope) hates the small town she lives in. She dreams of the day when she can escape to the big city and find a life of her own. The chance presents itself with an apartment for rent in Chicago. The catch is that she has to make it there by the next day with the first and last month's rent or the landlord will let it go to someone else.
This calls for a road trip! Except that all of her friends have either had their wheels grounded or in the shop for repairs. Except one. Off they go! But that doesn't work out either as the van overheats and ends up on the side of the road. Luckily a truck driver comes along that they eventually talk into taking them to Chicago where he says he's heading. Into the back of the truck they hop and off they go.
But they later realize that this driver was anything but a savior. Instead they find he's driven them to some hidden location, an abandoned factory of sorts, and left them there. When the back of the truck opens, they gather their things, click on a flashlight and start looking for a way out. Until one of them is pulled up from the floor in the dark and his head dropped seconds later.
The driver has dropped them off in a feeding ground for a group of vampires. He was hauling a load of plasma for them in the back of the truck, but fresh prey is so much better. One by one the group is taken, rather quickly too for an 84 minute film.Read more ›

Low budget vampire flick with lots of eye candy and a seemingly incoherent story line. Courtney Hope's performance of Amber is inspired, but it isn't enough to carry a sloppy story... Read morePublished on November 8, 2013 by Wise Guy
