Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

An attractive cast of young performers lead by Brittany Snow (Hairspray) is the main selling point for Prom Night, a remake of the 1980 Canadian slasher film starring Jamie Lee Curtis. Snow makes for a capable lead as the sole survivor of her family's massacre at the hands of an obsessed teacher (Jonathan Schaech), who returns three years later to finish his campaign on the eve of her senior prom. While no one's idea of a classic horror film, the Paul Lynch-directed Prom Night offered viewers a modest whodunit angle in between the killings; here, the villain's identity is known from the get-go, and what's left is a string of mechanical stalkings (which feature a surprisingly modest amount of blood) and reams of turgid teenspeak, which is handled as best as possible by Snow and her cast mates. The end result is a dull, suspense-free chiller that manages to make its mediocre source material seem inspired by comparison. Older moviegoers may note the presence of actors Idris Elba and James Ransone, both used so well on The Wire, and so thoroughly wasted here. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Three years ago, Donna (Brittany Snow, John Tucker Must Die) watched in horror as an obsessed predator (Johnathon Schaech, That Thing You Do!) murdered her family. Tonight is her senior prom and although she's anxious about the past, she's excited to celebrate her future with her friends. What Donna doesn't know is that the deranged psychopath has escaped from the asylum. He's returned to hunt her down, intent on killing anyone who gets in his way. As the night races towards its heart-pounding conclusion, the question becomes not who will be prom queen, but who will survive the killer's rampage.

1.0 out of 5 stars [1.5]--Funny how its rated PG-13...... September 8, 2008
Format:DVD
...And also explains why I didn't enjoy it much as I should. Just to let everyone know I seen this for free but regret spending my time on it anyway. And also just for the record my husband pick it out not me. After watching this I felt like I was watching a 91210 episode more then anything else. The direction by Nelson McCormick isn't good. He actually repeats a so-called shock moment twice in the movie, once near the start, the other near the end. Except neither are scary. He seems to be more interested in the scenes at the Prom, as opposed to the so-called horror/thriller parts of the story.

The kill scenes are bloodless. Using a knife, you would expect to see more blood spilled, but even when you see victims after, the so-called stab wounds look like simple stains on the clothing! As for the set-up of the kills, none are that shocking, surprising or scary. Tense chase scenes are ruined by dim-witted random pigeons appearing out of nowhere! As you can imagine I really disliked the pigeon sequence. The film being unintentionally funny just stomps the final nail in the coffin really, the porter death scene is something that I want to see again just for a laugh really. The poor dialogue is just embarrassing, the script is once again embarrassing, and the ending ridiculously predictable you might as well have not bothered to even see the movie from the get go. The movie does admittedly improve as it goes on in a way, the first forty minutes being almost unbearable. Once the killing starts you no longer want to slit your wrists, but you still have to cope with an incredible amount of lack of common sense.

The performances of the mostly unknown cast (to me at least) aren't that good, but Brittany Snow as Donna is awful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not gory, so not bad. March 1, 2009
Format:DVD
I don't really like gory movies, so this was nice. It had all the action of a horror movie without all the stuff that makes those of use with weak stomachs cringe and turn away in disgust. Great movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Well...... October 7, 2008
By Alex
Format:DVD
Even though my proms sucked they weren't as bad as this one. The actual prom scenes were really good. I mean who wouldn't have wanted a prom that looks like that? If mine had then I would have hated them less.

But when it comes down to gore, blood and a slasher flick this is worse than my proms. There's relatively little blood, which is different, and I believe done on purpose. You know who the killer is from nearly jump street. Doesn't leave much to the imagination. He kills with a purpose, but I think he killed one too many people.

I was a bit put of by the fact that the interaction between him and Donna was surprisingly little. The killer is a psycho and I was left wondering what he saw in her that made him go crazy like that.

Overall it's an ok film. Maybe one I should have waited until it was on the .99 shelf at my local store, but what's done is done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull and Predictable December 13, 2012
By Riaan
Format:DVD
This film pulls out every cliche from the slasher movie playbook. Every scene was utterly predictable. Not a scare in sight. It was excruciatingly boring. In fact, it was rather amusing (and familiar) to watch a killer go from being very proficient at butchering several teenagers in the first hour and then becoming inexplicably and hopelessly inept at killing the protagonist - a lonely teenage girl. A note to horror directors: Watch all the slasher-movies, see what has been done before and then try come up with something a bit more ORIGINAL. Is it too much to ask?

4.0 out of 5 stars Prom Night (Unrated) January 30, 2011
Format:DVD
For some reason, I really enjoyed this one. I love scary movies, but this one isn't that scary. I think I just love the plot of the movie. It's funny and spooky-n-creepy. I think this one had potential to be an excellent movie, but it was just one of those movies you can't take serious. In the end, it's a typical teen horror movie. But it was good to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kiddies Can Watch This Walt Disney Flick September 25, 2008
Format:DVD
After I watched this megabomb, I seriously researched to see if Walt Disney had made it. It's so clean and predictable and devoid of any blood, suspense or terror, that even kiddies can view it.

I've always loved the original PROM NIGHT with Jamie Lee Curtis. Although the original had gore and knockout murders, it was still fun and suspenseful.

Switch to 2007 and you've got the latest wretched remake of a classic. You would think that surely today's modern horror film makers could create something juicy and original--like "Jeepers Creepers. But no. When they're not remaking every hideous Asian horror flick like "Mirrors" "The eye", "The Grudge," they're desecrating such classics as "Prom night," "Halloween," "The Fog."

In this anemic mess, we're supposed to believe that the survivor of a mass murder is STILL living in her house and on the anniversary of the slaughter, she goes to the prom. In atrocities like this one, she and her fellow empty-headed buddies do everything stupid you can imagine.

When the prom is suddenly shut down because the police are now aware that the killer has returned, what does the heroine do? She goes back upstairs to retrieve something--while her fellow party-goers are all racing down the steps.

This is a Pure Vanilla movie. It's pretty and bland and boring and the only good thing about is the terrific box cover/poster that shows a screaming victim. When a poster is the best thing you can say about a movie, then it's time the movie-makers of this botched classic should think of making something different--like another Rambo or Rocky flick.
