A not bad remake of the old movie. The majority of the movie takes place in a motel, which is a little lame. All in all, a pretty good slasher!

Typical slasher film but with minimal blood and violence. Yes, it's horrible that the girl's family was killed by a crazy stalker. Even worse that he conveniently escapes to make it to her prom. Sadly, I was kinda rooting for some of the people to get killed, because, well that at least made this remotely interesting. For an "unrated" film, this was extremely mild. While it was a bit suspenseful (maybe for teenagers) it was incredibly predictable.

[1.5]--Funny how its rated PG-13......
Jenny J.J.I. | That Lives in Carolinas | 09/08/2008

"...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. 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.

Kiddies Can Watch This Walt Disney Flick
Jery Tillotson | new york city | 09/25/2008

"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."
Poor remake of a not-so-great horror slasher movie.

3 years ago, Donna Keppel (Betthany Snow) was devestated to find her family murdered by a mad psycho named Richard Fenton (Johnation Schaech) as she now lives with her aunt (Jessalyn Gigslig) and uncle (Linden Ashby). As her friends like boyfriend Bobby (Scott Porter), Lisa (Dana Davis), Claire (Jessica Strot), Ronnie (Collins Pennie) and Michael (Kelly Blatz) are gonna spend a night at one of the town's grand hotels as the senoir prom is being held over there. However Detective Winn (Idris Elba) has some problems as the killer has escaped from the mental institute to become a party crasher killing off the students in their rooms and at the Prom.

In-name-only remake of 1980's not-so-classic slasher flick "Prom Night" which originally starred Jamie Lee Curtis. The whole film is one big mess! i mean the film does have bad acting and direction. One of the biggest problems with this one is that it's a dull slasher flick with no imagination, no good kills or even a sense of fun as it's a total loser.

This Blu-Ray offers terrific sound and picture quality but that still doesn't make up for the movie not even the unrated version here. The extras are plenty such as commentary, deleted scenes, alternate ending, gag reel, video yearbook, bonus view PIP, storyboard track, featurettes, trailer and TV Spot."
