The Prowler - Shotgun to the Head

The Prowler is an effective and above average 80's slasher flick. The plot is somewhere between My Bloody Valentine and every other slasher flick ever, but what really stands out are the death scenes from special effects legend Tom Savini. There are so many great kills in this film, it's pretty difficult to just choose one. The pitchfork shower scene, the knife through the guy's head, the pool throat slitting. All great, but the one that stood out the most was the demise of the villain himself. Skip to the end of the movie where the Prowler is attacking our heroine with a shotgun pointed in her direction, she somehow overpowers him and turns the shotgun from his arms so it points right at his face and well.... you can guess the rest. We get the Tom Savini special, a shotgun blast to the face similar to his own scene from the 1980 film Maniac.
