The Blu ray transfer was nicely done as were the extras and the sound was amazing.
Dayna Newman/Slasher Diva
I really can't say enough about how terrific Prom Night looks and in my opinion it's one of the very best transfer of an 80s slasher.
Dave. K
The making of doc with interviews with several members of the cast, the TV footage, and outtakes were so fun to watch.

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..

I have to be honest, PROM NIGHT not my favourite slasher film down the bottom of the list for me
HALLOWEEN, FRIDAY THE 13TH & A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST a probably among my favourite's
the first time i saw this film was on DVD released by Anchor bay over 10 years ago now
what i remember watching about the film was how boring the plot/storyline was
it Definitely dragged on for the first 45mins of the film, i was thinking where's this film going
the film goes for 93mins including credits so the kill scenes don't start until the last 45mins really
the kill scenes are Very very Good for early slasher Horror, but the storyline is not.
the plot is simple and ridiculous
Jamie lee curtis plays the Prom Queen and her brother Alex in the film is the masked murderer
going around killing the teenagers that teased and bullied Alex's other sister Robin that was accidentally killed
when she was a child,
in the last scene before the credits roll,
Alex gets captured & stabbed at the High school Prom Dance night with Jamie lee curtis character trying to hug him
pulling of his mask, Alex shout's out Robin a few times and then the credits come up
very ridiculous storyline i didn't think much of this film when i first watched it
i've seen better slasher film's with much better plot/storylines than Prom night
it's a matter of opinion really, some fans will love it, some fans won't think much of it.

PROM NIGHT was released in 1980
and Synapse fims has given this film a special edition blu-ray release
with a new HD transfer 1:78:1 Widescreen incredible transfer aswell Hardly no Grain shows
and a new 5.

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.
