A jealous lover accidentally sets his high school sweetie and newly crowned prom queen Mary Lou ablaze at their Senior Prom, killing her and trapping her soul in her tiara. Decades later, her vengeful spirit is unleashed upon a new set of teens when she possesses a young prom queen hopeful, Vicki. HELLO MARY LOU is a complete deviation from the classic Slasher formula exhibited in the first film, sharing much more in common with the Supernatural elements in CARRIE or A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. Its mediocre effects sequences are blatantly lifted from these superior films, with the only interesting death being that of a half-naked teen that is crushed in her locker. Michael Ironside is wasted alongside the rest of the unconvincing "teen" cast, but Wendy Lyon stands out as the horrendous lead Vicki. Her overly sexualized scenes that follow her possession are awkward and uncomfortable, and not the least bit enticing. PROM NIGHT 2 suffers from a complete lack of identity and many of the other problems that signaled the end of an era in the late 80s.
