Prom Night

1

Eighties slasher remake that's nasty for the wrong reasons

If the Trade Descriptions Act applied apply to movie taglines, Prom Night's “A night to die for” poster splash would be more accurately rendered “A film that makes you want to kill yourself”.

An immoderately dull teen-kill rehash, it leaches the guilty pleasure from the 1980 Jamie Lee Curtis pic, sending a bunch of grads on the lash followed by a nutjob on the slash. Except the sins that exploitation horror thrives on (gratuitous nudity, outrageous violence) are completely AWOL, as is characterisation and wit, in a bland product that shames even its own grubby heritage.
