Critics reviews

The Prowler is a claustrophobic hot-house thriller about the traditionally hypocritical traps of contemporary society, most obviously the trip wires of gender and class. Few films are this alive to the profound discomfort of life as a woman in a man’s world, as this is the rare and great noir that’s considerably more sympathetic to the female than the male.
