About to watch this film for the second time. Pretty excited as I do not remember a whole lot from the first viewing. Counting on Savini to impress as he almost always does!

Personally, I kind of like how there are plot holes/ unanswered questions that arise in this movie. It leaves something for the viewer to desire and possibly formulate their own opinions about some of the stuff that is left out. Also, extremely creepy when Pam is struggling with the killer and shockingly finds out who it really is. One of my favourite slashers all being said and done, especially with Savini's FX.

I re-watched my dvd under the title of Rosemary's Killer the other night. In my opinion the only thing this film has going for it are the special effects which are really well done. Other than that the film is kind of bland. The killer is laughably way too easy to guess for one. The other thing is it has no interesting characters in it and chooses to focus basically the entire run time on the deputy and easily jealous girl, both of whom I found a little dull.

Agreed. There's some great kills and it's well shot, but overall I found the film to be a snoozer.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this one's bland. Back when I started getting into horror (about ten years ago) people were raving about this film. It was very overrated.

Always thought this movie was pretty bland on par with my bloody valentine. Great gore but that is about it really.

I feel like My Bloody Valentine at least has more going on in it. Plus there's a cast of characters that are somewhat interesting which is one of the things I think The Prowler lacks. I definitely enjoy it more than The Prowler.

I love both, but my preference would be The Prowler. It may have a colourless heroine, but at least she's likable, unlike the hero in My Bloody Valentine, who comes across as rather bitchy. And The Prowler has a more suspenseful final chase. And I get that on paper, dodging a psycho in a mine, with him smashing light bulbs with a pickaxe as he closes in on you is more terrifying than a description of the corresponding scene in The Prowler, but The Prowler always kept me more on the edge of my seat than My Bloody Valentine. Better jump scares too. Both movies have great gore, but Savini's effects aren't just aftermath shots.

Retroslashers claims proof that this is the lost film, "pitchfork massacre".

Do you mean in general, because there is one post in this entire thread saying MBV is sub-par?
