Prom Night (2008)

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).

Rating: 7/10.
Entertainment: 5/10.
Gore: 0/10.
Number of views: 3.

  1. A boring film. More like a Lifetime version of a horror film.
