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

When I first saw this movie at the video store and I read the back, I hesitaded for a minute. I had seen all the Prom Nights and they were all okay, but it sounded like the producers were trying to turn the series into a Jason flick. I mean why would they call the movie a Prom Night if it's not going to take place at the Hamilton High prom? Well I rented and I'm sure glad I did. This movie was awsome! It had all my reqirments I like in a movie, 1. A plot 2.Likable characters 3.An interesting setting. This movie was loaded with suspense too, and Nikki De Boer was great in the lead as Megan. I give this movie 5 stars out of 5. Definetly worth a look if your tired of the everyday horror movie.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot better than the previous efforts! Aug. 19 1999

This was on cable a couple of months ago and I had seen all the rest. Boy, was I glad that I had decided to tune in. It was funny, scary (well, not really) and suspensful. Nicola DeBoer played the lead character with a lot more depth than was needed for this type of movie, but that just proves what a good actress she is. Apart from the tacked on "lesbian" scene which had no point, this movie was ace and I would recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars good movie,just not good enough Nov. 6 1999

i liked this movie, im not saying i didnt and it was a hellova lot better than the stupid prom night 3, but it wasnt that good. It was funny at times, and scary at others, but it was sometimes boring to. But this movie does have its scary moments, that's for sure. But if there were few less boring parts, it would have been better. The movie just tries to hard, that's the problem.And it looks pretty cheesy.
