When I was a kid I came home one day and my brother had this movie playing, and I saw a seen that scared me back then, but stuck in my mind all these years. And now finally I have tracked down what that movie was and being a horror buff I must say I this is a pretty decent flick that rekindled me with that scene in my head and i also wasn't disappointed with the rest of the film around it.
Tho it didn't scare me at all this time (nothing does anymore) I still think it's a great horror movie. What's interesting about it is it pays tribute to many of the great horror movies made before it. The most noticeable is the prom at the beginning of the movie that resembles the prom from the movie Carrie. It's not a rip-off; it's a tribute to many, many horror movies.
This movie has some great scenes... especially in the locker room *squish*. I love the homage stuff, I like the catch phrases and I think this is certainly a terrific horror movie. The ending could have been better, but overall I'm glad I own this one. It's a shame there is no bonus features at all. I'd love to have heard an audio commentary.
NOTE: this film is not entirely a sequel to Prom Night 1. This movie uses the title as part 2, but it's kind of the same thing that was done for Halloween 3... only this movie doesn't suck!!! So keep in mind it's not a continuation of the first movie, but IMO this is the best Prom Night of them all!
The only thing Prom Night 2 (1987) has in common with the original Prom Night (1980) that starred Jamie Lee Curtis is the name, and quite frankly, that's just not a bad thing at least in my case. The original movie was a poorly paced, excuse of a slasher that wasn't only cheap with the slashes, but the end results really didn't deliver at all. Now this movie isn't THAT much of an improvement though, however, I can manage to remain focused and not worry about the Z-monster bombarding me with sleep-inducing hay-makers. Directed by Bruce Pittman, Prom Night 2 is somewhat entertaining despite how heavily it apes from other horror films in the same class.
For starters, this movie uses a supernatural theme as it borrows heavily from both A Nightmare on Elm Street and Carrie. It doesn't reach anywhere near the same level of greatness as either film mainly because it takes itself far less seriously; this isn't exactly a flaw to me, since it handles certain elements well enough plus you can tell through various homages its aim was low brow entertainment. The plot follows Vicki whom finds herself suffering from some type of hallucinations with Mary Lou at the center of it all. Her everyday life flips to a darker version and she finds herself quite possibly falling deeper into insanity. During this time, Mary Lou is working her way towards a possession.Read more ›
