"Tell you a story bout a Mary Lou.."
30 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I could not consciously give this film anything more than a 7 rating despite the fact that I really like it because it and the subsequent sequels and the remake of "Prom Night" have absolutely NOTHING to do with the original! This would be a great film on it's own, I don't know why the producers saw it necessary to leach onto the "Prom Night" title when this is actually a totally different movie. It's not really all that scary but it is a campy little horror flick about a prom queen who dies in a fire on stage in front of the entire school just before she is about to receive her crown. She dies before our eyes but returns to haunt the high school 30 years later and posses the soul of one prom queen hopeful. Michael Ironside puts on a great performance in this as the man responsible for Mary Lou's fiery death who later becomes the high school principal and whose son is dating the girl who has been possessed by the spirit of the vengeful Mary Lou. There are a couple of attempts to blatantly rip off "The Excorcist" and some inconsistencies in the story line but all in all this is a fun little flick and you don't need to watch the original to appreciate it since it's a totally different movie.
