Prowl (2010)

"Hi. My friend over here would like the exfoliation package."
At a glance:
After Dark Films' horror project Prowl (2010) recalls contemporaries like 30 Days Of Night (2007) in terms of how the vampires all have black irises and have the ability to pounce from great distances. Courtney Hope (pic, right) plays a small town loser desperately tryin to move out to Chicago but stumbles upon some supernatural company together with her loser friends when they decide to travel with some unidentified goods at the back of a truck. 
Bad news on the doorstep:
"I thought you said this movie was goin to be a hit?!?!"
The movie gives us some semblance of a reason to invest in the protagonist through some backstory but otherwise offers nothin new other than a flimsy twist for a climax. Courtney Hope, despite lookin a little like now-retired pornstar Courtney Simpson, disappointingly keeps her kit on the entire show. She gives her all but the movie collapses anyway.
Perennial wonderment:
If vampires can orgasm.
Reminds me of:
28 Days Later (2002) and 30 Days Of Night (2007).
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
Two stars, thanks to a decent music score. Very little goin for it. Should've expanded on the vampire matriarch played by Saxon Trainor (pic).
Trailer for the curious:
Bonus material:
Prowl (2010) stars actors I've never heard of like Perdita Weeks, Courtney Hope, Ruta Gedmintas, Joshua Bowman and Jamie Blackley.
