One of my favorite 80's horror flicks finally gets the loving respect it deserves in a Synapse special edition Blu Ray (also on DVD). Before you start thinking, "oh great, yet ANOTHER issue of this 1980 slasher.", hold up, this one is different and presented like never before, and packed with solid special features which include:
- A new beautiful 2K scan HD transfer in 16x9 1.78.1
- A brand new 5.1 surround sound mix specially created for this release (also in original 2.0 mono)
- Captioning in English (only) for the hearing impaired or hard of hearing.
- Reversible cover featuring the classic original poster art & foreign version, which looks very nice too.
- About 9 minutes of additional scenes that were added for the original NBC TV Broadcast (though nothing spectacular)
- A new 25 minute behind the scenes making of Featurette: The Horrors of Hamilton High: The Making of "Prom Night".
- An insightful audio commentary with Director Paul Lynch & Screenwriter William Gray (the moderator is very annoying!)
- The original trailer & rarely seen tv spots (4 of them) were nice too; which were legendary in 1980, with the great tag line:
"If you're not back by midnight, you won't be coming home!". Great memories!

My only complaints are that during the 23 minutes of rare outtakes (exclusive to the Blu Ray version), there's no dialogue, it's just music from the soundtrack, and it would have been nice to hear what's being flubbed and talked about between takes. Also, the old iconic Avco/Embassy logo is missing from the opening, despite everyone talking about A/E in the extras... It says on the packaging that the program content is licensed from Echo Bridge, and none of their (EB's) previous DVD versions had the A/E opening..

Wow, what can I say about this particular edition?! It completely rocks if you love this movie and Jamie Lee Curtis. Synapse has really done an exceptional job on this movie. It has NEVER looked this good and the special features are outstanding. Animated menu with background music from the "Prom" with easy selections.
Bonus Features are ~
~Horrors of Hamilton High - "The Making Of Prom Night"
~Original Theatrical Trailer
~TV Spots
~Radio Spots
~Motion Still Gallery
~Additional TV Footage that was shot for the Television premiere (As this movie had to be trimmed from the nudity, etc.) (11:11 in length)
~Never before seen outtakes from original Prom Night shooting script.
Audio Setup ~
English DTS-HD 5.1
English DTS-HD 2.0 Mono
Audio Commentary with Director Paul Lynch and Screenwriter William Gray Moderated by Paul Jankiewicz
English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
The movie running time is about 1:32:44 with Credits.
See Jamie Lee in one of her first "Scream Queen" roles showing off her cleavage in several shots.

Look for a few actresses that played some of the roles in the movie like that of "Kelly", Marybeth Rubens who I thought was really nice looking.
We didn't get to see Jamie Lee herself in the special features talking about the movie, but she was mentioned more than once and I believe she talks about Prom Night in the features on "The Fog" movie Blu-ray. All in all, a really good edition to have if you love Jamie Lee in her early horror heyday.

Being a fan of the horror/slasher genre I was very excited to hear PROM NIGHT was getting a Special Edition release! I bought it right away & it did not disappoint. The quality of sound & picture far exceeded my expectations. Two highlights are that in this new transfer parts of the film that were too dark to see in previous dvd releases are lit up nicely. In particular, Wendy's stalking scene. She is running through very dark school corridors & in the Special Edition I can actually see the surroundings rather than just a dark picture---that was worth the price of dvd alone!!! Also, the bonus featurette with cast members was a welcome surprise. It had behind the scenes info that was new to me & seeing familiar faces from cast members was awesome ( MaryBeth Reubens, Joy Thompson & Michael Tough were the highlights for me). Pick this up if you get the chance you will not be disappointed. :)

Odds are, if you're looking at this, you know the story. If not, here we go:
Four tweens accidentally kill a girl in some weirdly threatening version of hide and seek. They vow to never tell anyone... but little do they know, someone saw everything. Six years pass, and it's the night of the prom. The now teens start getting calls and stuff and then the heads roll to a disco beat.

I've loved this film since I saw it on the Syfy network when I was in like 2nd grade. The previous releases don't hold a candle to this one. The picture and sound quality is astounding. You know how it has that 'hazy/dream-like' filter? Well, it looks pretty good here, for once. It's got great balance. You can see everything. You'll probably see things you might not have noticed before, especially in the night scenes. There are a few parts where it gets a bit grainy, but overall, it's clear and looks crisp.
The special features are to die for. You like that? Lol. But yeah. It's great to see the cast and crew, still proud of a little film they made 35 years ago. And after viewing the trailer and many TV spots, the ad campaign was pretty strong too! No wonder this is often remembered as one of the 1980s better slasher offerings.

For you first timeys, I'll let you know a few things: This film kind of has a bad rep because of the disco, but it's not exactly a major thing. Also, people complain about it being 'slow'. Oh, you mean because half the cast doesn't die within the first 30 minutes? Lol. There's not oodles of gore like Friday the 13th, but the characters (in my opinion), are pretty likable. You care about them and are genuinely frightened for them. And HELLO, this movie was one of the first slasher films off the Halloween success cannon.
