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.

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

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.

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.

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!

This movie puts you in a "i know what you did last summer setting". It's thrilling, but the deranged killer kills his victims so old-fashioned. I mean "gutting people with a knife" really?? All this killing because he had a obsession with one of his students. I only only gave three stars because it had a "don't watch in the dark" feeling.

First of all, to all cops in such movies; AIM FOR THE HEAD. I really liked this movie. It had all the right ingredients: not to much killing, no grotesque killing, just old fashioned stabbing and neck slashing. Everything I loved about it also devalued it, in that there was nothing new, just different actors, although good acting. The 20-something playing teens has gotten kind of old. Brittany Snow lacked something of that teen-in-terror quality. Jonathan Schaech was miscast, though almost anyone could have played his part, as his character did not speak or emote much. Would have liked to have seen Jason Behr or Donnie Wahlberg in the role. Would have like to have seen the role given more meat as well. Suppose Schaech's character had murdered her family years earlier, but she had never came home that night or seen his face, but heard his discuised voice? Three years later her teacher is a prom shaparone and then events proceed.

As much as I like it, it should have been a straight-to-dvd movie , as it was more than a movie of the week, but less than theatre material. It needed something new. It also needed us to get more emotionally involved with the characters. This was not there. We only got a little screen time with the "prom _itch." We did not really get to know her enough to hate her. Even if the boyfriend was murdered the way he was at the end, which was good for the movie, there should have been some earlier physical confrontation with Schaech's character. Also , too much time with the cop.

I will buy this movie, but it left me wondering , if only they had done it this way. Remember, AIM FOR THE HEAD. One stolen bullet proof vest and Donna would have been worm food.

A young teen returns home to find her entire family murdered by an obsessed and psychotic teacher. Flash forward three years, and Donna is trying to move on with her life as she and her friends prepare for their senior prom. Prom Night will definitely be a night she'll never forget when her crazed admirer breaks free from prison and begins slicing his way back in to her life. Much like the other PG-13 Slasher revivals that drowned theaters in the 2000s, PROM NIGHT is a bloodless Thriller tailored specifically for its Teen audiences with absolutely no consideration for the fans that made the original films so popular. To its advantage, the young cast is actually filled with actors and actresses that look like real teens. The film also makes no attempt at concealing the identity of the killer, which allows him to become a ruthless and calculated villain. This is about where the positive praise ends for the otherwise boring and formulaic picture. While it isn't necessary poorly made, it is entirely uninteresting, and lacks the gratuitous gore and nudity that Slasher fans crave. PROM NIGHT brings nothing new or interesting to the table, and is best left to its designated audience (if not forgotten).
