Trivia

Though the movie was filmed in 1987, relics of the movie could still be found at the junior high school where it was filmed. The black paint that covered the windows could still be seen until the windows in the school's library were replaced in early 2001. See more »

Goofs

Extremely obvious rubber pullover head mask on the transformation creature of Mary Lou towards the end of the movie. You can visibly see the rubber neck edging of the pullover mask stand off the actor's neck by at least two inches. This bad makeup job runs all the way across the front of the actors neck as the creature stands up on stage to full stance. See more »

More interesting than Prom Night 1
21 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hello Mary Lou isn't the most entertaining horror I've seen but it's fairly decent and something always seems to be happening. There's no gore at all but there's plenty of silliness. There seems to be a weird religious edge to it as well, as the girl possessed by Mary Lou asks the priest: "Will you pray for me?...Will you f**k me?" There's a hilarious line from the priest during a funeral, when he comments that the death should remind everyone of violence seen every day in life, on TV, and in films. Other funny scenes include a girl being pulped in between two lockers, Mary Lou's corpse bursting out of Vicki's body, and an exploding grave. These are not as cool as they sound, but will still bring a smile to your face.

I would give this a watch if you enjoy 80's horror films. It's not the best, but it's got enough wholesome cheesiness to pass the time.
