4.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU'RE NOT BACK BY MIDNIGHT, YOU WON'T BE COMING HOME! September 9, 2014
By Jimmy R
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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..

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Are Coming,Killers Are Coming! September 21, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Prom Night" Is another of my favorite retro Slashers.
I love the disco soundtrack especially the Title track 'Prom Night" It's a great example of the late Seventies/1980 Disco craze .It's like going back in a time machine.The characters are pretty well developed as we see them go from children to high school teenagers.

Ever since I saw Halloween I craved more Jamie lee Curtis in a horror role and Prom Night gives you a healthy dose of both.It is light on gore save one good decapitation scene, although there is a good amount of blood. But it still holds up as Slasher Royalty.

The Blu ray transfer was nicely done as were the extras and the sound was amazing.I am always pleased when a classic comes on BRay and this certainly is no exception.it is both suspenseful and will have you empathizing with the killer.

A must for any collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars PROM NIGHT FINALLY GETS THE TREATMENT IT DESERVES!!! September 12, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

Synapse Films is fast becoming one of the better companies to be releasing horror titles on BluRay! my first purchase were the DEMONS and DEMONS 2 Steele Book Editions, and I was VERY impressed! they should release more Steele Book BluRays even if it does cost the consumer at bit more money
