Blue Underground Re-Releasing The Prowler Uncut and Uncensored

If you call yourself a slasher fan, then you should be well acquainted with the Joe Zito directed 1981 splatter classic The Prowler. If you’ve never heard of it or never seen it, get ready to officially put this ninety minutes of gore-filled mayhem on your “must watch” list because there’s a new re-release coming courtesy of Blue Underground.

According to the official Blue Underground newsletter, an uncut and uncensored version of the flick will be hitting DVD by Halloween of this year with a Blu-ray announcement coming sometime after that.

Check out the trailer and the plot crunch for the film, which was also known as Rosemary’s Killer, below.

And the angels sing …

If you think you’re safe, you’re DEAD wrong! Avalon Bay, 1945: On the night of her graduation dance, young Rosemary and her date are brutally murdered by a prowler thought to be a jilted soldier home from the war. The killer was never found. 30 years later, the dance is held again for the first time since that horrific evening – but something else may have also returned. Tonight, the teens of this sleepy town will meet their grisly ends at the hands – and pitchfork, blade, and more – of THE PROWLER!

    Anything different from the previous uncut special edition? That one has commentary with director Joseph Zito and Tom Savini, plus Savini’s on set videos.

    Of course, it goes back a few years, so the new transfer could be even better. And Blu Ray is most welcome.

      The extras look to be the same. Per BU’s website:

      * Audio Commentary with Producer/Director Joseph Zito and Special Make-Up Effects Artist Tom Savini

      * Theatrical Trailer
