Release date: 2010
Prowl was one that I thought… hmmm… likely to be pants. Perhaps that lack of expectation did the film a favour because, you know what, I really enjoyed it. Okay there were a couple of plot issues and the twist was hardly a twist given the great big honking clues we get from the very beginning but, I really did like this one. It was quite shocking to find out that it was, whilst set in the US, primarily a UK/Bulgarian production and that many of the young actors were British.

The film struggled to find an ending – not helped by the fact that the twist wasn’t a shock. However the vampires were brutal, animalistic – but also we saw that they were capable of rational thought. There was blood, body parts and all in all I can’t fault the film as it delivered the very goods that it was meant to.
Great cinema? No. Good fun? Absolutely. 6.5 out of 10.
