One of two new AFTERDARK ORIGINALS, PROWL is far inferior to HUSK. While PROWL takes an innovative twist on vampirism it strikes out in most directions. The story has the expected gathering of sex-starved, partying youths who take up with an all-too friendly truck driver after their van breaks down. And for the millionth time, its the gals left to fend off the bloodsuckers.
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.

This is not your average straight to dvd movie. It is actually made quite well. I would recommend it.

Mild Spoilers: The word vampire is never used, these "vampires" are fine in the daylight, they can't turn people into "vampires"

These were to have a bendable nose piece but only two have them and it's unfortunate because they are the perfect size and have pouch for carbon filter.

Let's start this out with a little chat about horror-movie semiotics, shall we? I knew you'd perk up!
Here's a trope I just adore: I call it The Blood Queen. A beautiful young girl runs a gauntlet of horror movie Hell and comes out soaked in blood. Think Frontier(s). Think Inside. There are all sorts of variations, such as the wonderful Livide, or The Loved Ones where it's a Blood Prince, Xavier Samuel's Brent with his girlishly long and precious pretty hair.
Here it's Courtney Hope as Amber, a girl suffering, it seems, from a bout of the old anhedonia, loss of pleasure, specifically pleasure in food. She blames the environment, the tiny Midwestern town of Famville where she's spent her whole life.
One night her alcoholic mother let's slip that Amber was adopted, and maybe that's the last straw; Amber finally takes action, makes a plan to escape. Get's a bunch of friends: a nerd (Oliver Hawes), a hunk (Joshua Bowman), a pretty boy (Jamie Blackly), a hippie girl (Perdita Weeks), a sexy, independent girl (Ruta Gedmintas), and determined little Amber. She's on some sort of time limit, see, has to make Chicago in about 24 hours. So when the car, driven by the crush-having nerd Eric, breaks down, they all decide to take a reluctantly offered ride from friendly old truck driver Bernard (Bruce Payne, having lots of fun). Pretty soon it becomes apparent that this was a mistake all will live to regret, most of them not for very long, because when they arrive at their destination, and old abandoned slaughterhouse, they are immediately MASSACRED BY BLOODTHIRSTY VAMPIRES!!! AAAAAHHHHHHHGGGGHHHHH!!!!!
What I'm saying is, don't take this one too seriously. It's just dark, teenagery fun!

I don't want to give away anything, so I'll be vague, but I thought this was a pretty decent movie.

It's a little slow to get started, but makes up for it by quickly moving through a certain part of the story that other movies of this type spend way too much time on. I also like how the victims weren't nearly as stupid as the idiots that populate other movies. (What's that noise? I'll go upstairs alone to find out!) The characters are believable in their reactions, which is rare in these types of flicks.

I didn't see the plot twist coming. It makes me actually look forward to a sequel so we can see if she continues down the path she is on or if she becomes a vigilante monster killer.

Overall, this is a nice fright movie. I recommend it.

I like this movie. Different from other horror movies. After Dark Originals can make a good horror movie.
