Format: DVD
...And also explains why I didn't enjoy it much as I should. Just to let everyone know I seen this for free but regret spending my time on it anyway. And also just for the record my husband pick it out not me. After watching this I felt like I was watching a 91210 episode more then anything else. The direction by Nelson McCormick isn't good. He actually repeats a so-called shock moment twice in the movie, once near the start, the other near the end. Except neither are scary. He seems to be more interested in the scenes at the Prom, as opposed to the so-called horror/thriller parts of the story.

The kill scenes are bloodless. Using a knife, you would expect to see more blood spilled, but even when you see victims after, the so-called stab wounds look like simple stains on the clothing! As for the set-up of the kills, none are that shocking, surprising or scary. Tense chase scenes are ruined by dim-witted random pigeons appearing out of nowhere! As you can imagine I really disliked the pigeon sequence. The film being unintentionally funny just stomps the final nail in the coffin really, the porter death scene is something that I want to see again just for a laugh really. The poor dialogue is just embarrassing, the script is once again embarrassing, and the ending ridiculously predictable you might as well have not bothered to even see the movie from the get go. The movie does admittedly improve as it goes on in a way, the first forty minutes being almost unbearable. Once the killing starts you no longer want to slit your wrists, but you still have to cope with an incredible amount of lack of common sense.

The performances of the mostly unknown cast (to me at least) aren't that good, but Brittany Snow as Donna is awful.

At one point I had planned to note all the STUPID things that happened in this movie... But the list grew so long and the movie was such a dud that I can't be bothered now.

There are always people in horror movies walking around basically waiting to die. Prom Night, however, goes beyond that. The characters are STUPID and they are constantly doing STUPID things.

...Like when the one girl realized there was a killer in the building and suddenly abandoned her boyfriend to run off on her own. She runs down the hall, hitting the elevator button in a panic -- ON THE THIRD FLOOR! Once the dumbass realizes she must brave all three flights of stairs she busts a heel and falls down them instead. Then of course she went down to the basement and wandered around, making all sorts of noises and breathing heavily until she gets killed. STUPID. They didn't even TRY to give these characters brains.

I feel that this movie is an insult to horror movies and fans of the genre and I do not recommend it to anyone (Unless you're 10 and interested in horror and need something watered down to start). I can't believe this wasn't a TV movie!

[1.5]--Funny how its rated PG-13...... Sept. 8 2008

The performances of the mostly unknown cast (to me at least) aren't that good, but Brittany Snow as Donna is awful. Admittedly her part as written does her no favors, but she's not good. In fact the only actress or actor of the group that was any good was Jessica Stroup. She was convincing in "The Hills Have Eyes 2" as a marine, and would have been a better choice for the lead role, in my opinion.

Overall Prom Night is a boring and lazy attempt at a horror movie. So try to save your money, go rent the original for a better slasher film that's associated to this.

Not gory, so not bad. March 1 2009
By Chelsey Hartman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I don't really like gory movies, so this was nice. It had all the action of a horror movie without all the stuff that makes those of use with weak stomachs cringe and turn away in disgust. Great movie!

Prom Night (Unrated) Jan. 30 2011
By blu-rays - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For some reason, I really enjoyed this one. I love scary movies, but this one isn't that scary. I think I just love the plot of the movie. It's funny and spooky-n-creepy. I think this one had potential to be an excellent movie, but it was just one of those movies you can't take serious. In the end, it's a typical teen horror movie. But it was good to me.

DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY Sept. 23 2008
By Mark Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There is an inherent problem when remaking any film. That problem is the fact that the movie has been made once and has fans of the original film who look upon any remake as sacrilege. In some cases this might be worthwhile criticism but in most it's not. The reason is that in some cases, the film is not necessarily a remake but more a retelling. Or it could go the route of tossing out the original altogether and telling it's own story while taking the name from the original. It's these movies that are unjustly criticized before being seen. And the genre with the biggest fan base, as well as the most remakes, is the horror field. Trust me, horror fans are like pit bulls when it comes to defending their original favorites.

So it is we see the release of PROM NIGHT. The original film starred Jamie Lee Curtis, fresh from her scream queen beginnings and about to star in THE FOG and TERROR TRAIN that same year, and revolved around a revenge killing of teens at their senior prom who had been involved in the death of a child earlier. The new release tosses aside that whole story, keeping only two aspects: the prom and a murderer. Had they titled it something different, perhaps it wouldn't have received the drubbing of fans and critics alike when it was released.

This time around we begin with the murder of an entire family, the last of which is the mother who is killed before the eyes of terrified teen Donna (Brittaney Snow) who has sought refuge beneath her bed. The killer is caught and turns out to be one of her teachers, Mr. Fenton (Jonathan Schaech) who has become obsesses with the girl. Off to jail he goes, off to her aunt and uncle heads Donna and years pass.

Donna deals fairly well with the murder of her family through counseling and turns into a nice, normal teen. She gets through high school, has a boyfriend, is dealing with heading off on her own to college and finally, is preparing for that big teen social event, the senior prom. Faced with these changes, she begins having nightmares but as her therapist explains, that's normal when dealing with change.

We meet Donna's friends, boyfriend Bobby (Scott Porter) - the good guy that everyone likes, Lisa (Dana Davis) - the popular cheerleader who has a grudge against rich girl snob Crissy (Brianne Davis) and Ronnie (Collins Pennie) - the star football player. The friends have rented a double room in the hotel that the prom will take place in, a prom paid for by Crissy's wealthy dad. It seems Crissy and Lisa are competing for prom queen and the cattiness between the two is apparent from their first encounter.

Unknown to Donna is one thing that will make her prom night an unforgettable one. Mr. Fenton has escaped from the mental facility he was being kept in. A mental facility instead of jail because he was ruled criminally insane and sent there rather than executed for murder. Isn't it funny that the Hollywood elite decry the use of capital punishment in real life yet always seem to show murderers escaping to wreak havoc when they get life or are ruled criminally insane?

Of course Mr. Fenton tracks down Donna to her new family and head out to discover more about her whereabouts. When he finds out she's at the swank hotel and her prom, he heads that way and with no effort gets a suite on the same floor as Donna and her friends, paid for with the credit card of one of his new victims.

Two steps behind, the police are notified three days after his escape that Fenton is lose. Detective Winn (Idris Elba) blows his top and sets up his force to find Fenton and prevent another massacre. Having been the police officer in charge the first time around, he knows the brutality Fenton is capable of.

So much for the set up. Any fan of horror knows that much bloodletting will follow, sudden pop ups of characters and props will mislead or cause you to jump and that eventually Donna will be forced to confront her tormentor. Along the way characters we come to like or hate will be slaughtered and the murderous ways of Mr. Fenton will be seen by one and all. Sure it's a tried and true formula, but so what? Aren't half of all horror films formulaic?

What we get instead is a new killer with a new way of behaving. Schaech does a great job as Fenton. Not only are we presented with a mad, stalking murderer, we get a tad insight into the motivation of the same. With subtlety and maneuvering, Schaech presents Fenton as a conniving and manipulative villain who can get in unseen and escape the same way.

The rest of the cast does a decent job as well. All of the teens involved look more like teens here than the stars of the original film. And their job is not to reveal depth since victims rarely are given a back story with the exception of the lead. Snow does a fine job as Donna, offering both an innocence and a shattered victim who takes the blame for all things bad in her life, not realizing she is the receiver and not the instigator.

All in all this movie is not the pariah that some would have you believe. Sure, it offers little in the way of new horror or scares. Granted it is using a formula that has been done before. But then again, when you choose to ride a roller coaster and then a second, is it reduced in effect because it is a different one? Does the same coaster lose its effect the second time around? This movie is made for fun. Forget the past, forget the original and enjoy this one on its own merits. It may not be worthy of screening at the Aspen festival, but its fun on its own.

Kiddies Can Watch This Walt Disney Flick Sept. 25 2008
By Jery Tillotson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.
