Donnas senior prom is supposed to be the best night of her life, one of magic, beauty, and love. Surrounded by her best friends, she should be safe from the horrors of her past. But when the night turns from magic to murder there is only one man who could be responsible, the man she thought was gone forever. Now, Donna and her friends must find a way to escape the sadistic rampage of an obsessed killer, and survive their Prom Night. Written by
James Ransone and Idris Elba were both in the series The Wire (2002) but never shared a scene, here they play detectives. See more »
When Donna is going back to her room after the alarm has sounded, the camera switches from behind to in front of her. When it does, you can see a man walking around in T-shirt and Jeans. The entire building had already been evacuated and no one should have been upstairs. That and besides the fact that everyone was in prom attire. See more »

That's Detective Winn to you, kid.
[hands over the fax]
This just came for you... What?
[as Winn grabs the phone]
[on the phone]
This is Detective Winn with the Bridge Port PD. I'm calling about a fax concerning the escape of Richard Fenton. What the hell is going on?
Yes, sir! Detective, we just received word from the hospital of Fenton's escape on Wednesday evening.
Why did it take three God damn days to notify us?
Sorry, sir. I needed to ...

Imagine the scenario - you are at the movie theater only because you are in Washington for the weekend and it's raining and you're finished with the Museums. You think you might go see the Sarah Marshall movie as the trailer look so so and you don't have to engage your brain. It's sold out. Options? - The Bank Job, In Bruges, The Leatherheads or Prom night. You've seen the Bank Job (suprisingly decent heist movie that) and In Bruges (again, pretty good) so you're down to two. You don't fancy watching Clooney or the nice one from the Office run around in 1930 football uniforms, so you go see Prom Night right? Wrong. You take the $8.50, walk up to a stranger in the street and ask him to punch you in the face for $8.50. It would be money better spent.
It actually plays like more of a comedy than a horror/thriller or whatever it is supposed to be. If I was financing that movie and they showed me that as a final cut I wouldn't know whether to laugh or cry. Probably both. An insult to anyone's intelligence... my roommate was laughing out loud most of the movie, as for the acting, they might as well have cast robots (or maybe dogs) in the roles, they would have been more realistic. The detective has to be possibly the worst actor I have ever seen (Ben Affleck and Hayden Christansan (I hate his acting so much I don't care how you spell his name) you are relieved on your title(s))
So in summary 'not good'
