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

I will not extoll the virtues of this movie because it was pretty good and it did hold my attention. The cast is an attractive one and that includes the killer who you find out about from the start. An ex-teacher who is obsessed with the lovely blonde girl. He went to jail and 5 years later he has escaped and it is Prom night. What lesson did we learn here? It is a death sentence to be a friend (not all get it) or boyfriend of the object of the killer! Jonathan Schaech is eerie as the killer, he is very handsome and still scary. The young cast is attractive and does a pretty good job. We still get the usual dumb things that go hand in hand with slasher movies (but not much gore!). Bad decisions and falling down but we get used to them.

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.

I love this movie. It's a little corny, yes, but I still think it's a good movie. It's entertaining and even has some pretty creepy moments. I don't particularly find this movie SCARY, but I do think it's a good movie. It's one I just had to add to my collection.

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.

A psychotic teacher (Johnathon Schaech) stalks a former student (Brittany Snow). We get the abbreviated account. He kills her family. He ends up in a psych-ward.......yadda-yadda-yadda. Three years later, she's still traumatized but won't let that get in the way of prom night! Of course, the deranged teacher escapes and heads straight for his object of desire (that he even knows where she is and what she's doing at this point in her life......while he's been incarcerated!!!......... is beyond the scope of believability). Naturally, he's smarter than everyone and handily evades capture even after a b-zillion close calls. With only a knife in hand, he manages to slaughter a lot of people before anyone bothers to notice. One wonders what class he taught in school to prepare him for his unchallenging career in killing.

This runaway slasher flick stretches all credulity. The killer is always seven steps ahead of everyone while wandering around in plain sight!
Barely a notch above dull, this prom night is predictable and lazy in its approach. Eh.

Okay, there's not a lot of gore in the movie, which usually I'd have to say that horror movies without gore just don't cut it... but. The sheer creepiness of this movie makes me have to give it a huge thumbs up. I love the twists and turns.
So, basically, this movie is about a high school teen about to go to prom night. I won't give too much away, because everybody should watch this movie without spoilers, but. The high school teen's parents and brother were murdered about a year before her prom night. The killer comes back for her at prom. The rest is up to you to find out. I loved it, 10/10 would watch again. I actually have watched this movie several times and it never gets bad for me.

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.
