Product Details

Product Description


With Prom Night IV: Deliver Us From Evil, producer Peter Simpson seems to be trying to get back to the roots of the series. This movie bears no real relationship to the first, but it's straight-faced and though there is a supernatural element, it's underplayed, making this just an old-fashioned slasher flick. The story has a homicidal priest (James Carver) who may or may not have supernatural abilities (he suffers from stigmata) being secretly imprisoned by the church for 30 years in a chemically induced coma. When he finally escapes, he's back to his old ways of killing wayward, promiscuous teens. His targets are four teens who have skipped the school prom (the only concession to the title) to spend a weekend together at an isolated mansion. Among the young Canadian actors who would go on to better things are Nikki de Boer, Joy Tanner and Joel Wyner (here billed as Alden Kane) who, along with Alle Ghadban, comprise the quartet of victims-in-waiting. One can almost read a political subtext into the film, with its story of a Catholic church cover-up at a time when real life scandals were rocking Canadian churches. But ultimately writer Richard Beattie and director Clay Borris may have done too good a job of returning to the source.: like the first Prom Night, this is an extremely slow-moving film that is poorly lit in spots. It manages to muster some thrills in the climax but overall it's slow-moving and unevenly acted. --D.K. Latta

5.0 out of 5 stars Prom Night IV Delivers March 17 2008
Format:VHS Tape
I loved this one! It's low budget, but the acting is decent, the story line is good and it's a different spin on the series. The best part was the crucification scene -- Creepy!

1.0 out of 5 stars You have to be kidding... July 27 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This must be the lowest-budget, ill-cast, sorriest excuse of a horror movie ever made. Hands down, that's it.

Format:VHS Tape
Just thought I'd say thanks to the folks out there who said they enjoyed my film "Prom Night 4 - Deliver us from Evil". I've got a few more listed films so if you have seen them let me know what you think and I would be happy to answer any questions.
Thanks, Clay Borris - Director

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than 2 and 3 March 25 2000
Format:VHS Tape
So we know what to expect from the Prom Night series by now: cheap and nasty efforts. But this is a lot better than the stupid Prom Night 2 and 3. It's a pity they hadn't done this one before 2 and 3 because Jonas, the killer, is pretty cool and he actually has motives for his madness. If he'd have been in 2 then we would never have heard of Mary Lou (urgh) and this guy would be the star of the sequels. Am I asking for too much with a higher body count? Probably. But this is worth a look. Forget 2 and 3 and pretend they don't exist. Just get this one and the original. You won't be disappointed.
