late 80s horror gold
13 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the original Prom Night was a straight slasher film, this time we get a possession/supernatural story. It has little in common with the original film other than the teens and prom thing. But this sequel is actually better than the original.

The first half of this movie, I thought I was going to be disappointed. Almost like a 2000s PG-13 horror film. The only thing saving it was Michael Ironside. But it's well worth the wait. The last 45 minutes of this film are pure 80s horror gold. Plenty of full frontal nudity, lots of blood and violence--even a blowjob. There's also a brilliantly creepy rocking-horse.

Films like this demonstrate that horror of the late 1980s could offer just as much as the films of the slasher generation. This film in particular shows the stylistic differences of the new generation when compared to the original Prom Night. I think the teen horror subgenre in particular found its best expression in the late 80s with films like this and Nightmare on Elm Street 3, which were both released in 1987. And both films are very representative of their time.

If you like late 80s/early 90s teen horror that offers plenty of gore and nudity then you're gonna love this.
