043: The Prowler (1981) and Super-Disturbing True Crime!

The Prowler, directed by Joseph Zito of Friday the 13th – The Final Chapter fame, was released during the upswing of slasher movies in the early 80s.  There is a sizeable cult following for this one, mainly because it’s got Tom Savini at the helm of some truly impressive carnage.  But would this movie have faded into obscurity if we weren’t still talking about those pitchfork and bayonet scenes?  Did we join the cult, so to speak? Tune in to find out!

Based on some helpful theme suggestions from Jason the Terrible, Graverobber decided to pick “movies based on true events” for our mini-reviews.  And he immediately regretted it!  As horror fans, some of us prefer to deal with the horrors of real life without actually having to deal with the horrors of real life.  In our case, we typically like our horror ‘not real’, so this one was a bit tough to enjoy because of the subject matter.  Ironically, we all ended up with movies set in Australia of all places, as Jason attempted to solve a decades-old murder, Geoff chronicled a couple’s abduction habits, and Dave revealed the point at which vigilantism becomes insane mania.  Fun times!
