Did You Know?

Nelson McCormick had done extensive research into proms going as far back as where and when the first prom was ever held in American history in the film, compiling detailed portfolios for the cast and crew which had an introduction on the origin of the prom and what it represents. However writer Cardone when going over what would be the titular prom with McCormick ultimately decided on a prom which apart from the music and dancing of the Bridgeport seniors was beyond the scale or budget of a standard American prom.See more »
Factual errors: After the fire alarm is pulled, Donna rides the elevator to the 3rd floor. When a fire alarm sounds, all elevators go to the first floor and stop working, so no one gets stuck in the elevator during a fire.See more »
Ms. Waters:Lisa! Wow! That is so...
Crissy Lynn:[off screen] Inappropriate.
Lisa:Crissy! Wow, your dress is so simple. It's so you.
Donna:[walking up the steps] Crissy, come one. This is prom, Let's just all be nice and forget the past.
Crissy Lynn:[walks down a few steps, to Lisa] As fellow prom queen nominee, I want to wish you luck tonight. You're gonna need all you can get.
Lisa:[intimidated] You think you got it all wrapped up, do you?
Crissy Lynn:[snearing] Well, they're certainly not propped up and on parade like yours are. That's for sure.

Less scary than the kid toucher episode of Webster, 12 April 2008
Author: nomad-48 from Matawan, NJ

Prom Night is shot with the artistic eye someone gives while finely crafting a Lifetime original film. You know the one. This October, Lifetime takes a break from the courageous tale of a woman surviving (insert disease name here) to tell the somewhat creepy tale of a woman pursued by a stalker ex-boyfriend. It's dramatic … it's sappy … it's immensely dull. It does nothing to further a genre, tell an original story, or strive for ANY sort of newness. Prom Night shares this plight. Watching the killer poke holes in his victims, we sit silently as they slump to the floor with not a drop of blood spilled. It occurred to me that this was the cleanest killer in movie history.

Our director is working with a fairly good-looking killer so he is forced to pour on the camera angles to make him appear creepier. Think about Matthew McConaughey coming at you with a knife. You'd probably go … "OH! Good lookin guy is going to kill me? Naaaa." Not scary even for a second, so the director throws Schaech into shadows and over the shoulder in the mirror. This mirror shot is repeated to the point of sickness as it practically becomes a fetish of the creator. You'll get 15 jump scares in this film, 2 of which made my date jump (I might mention she is afraid of EVERYTHING). I'd also mention she decided to take a nap halfway through the film and at one point threatened to leave me.

As if this film were not disjointed enough, it appears to be cut to shreds. I'm not saying it looks like key points were left on the cutting room floor as the crew scrambled to salvage some semblance of a horror film; I'm saying as the film moves from scene to scene, you often get a jarring jump. This is the kind of thing you'd expect when a film catches fire and a projectionist is forced to splice ends together, cross his fingers, and hope for the best. The editor should be shot.

With a plot you can pack into two sentences, one stray spray of blood, an emo killer, and the tension of a very special episode of "Silver Spoons", we're left with no reason to support horror this weekend … at least on the big screen. In fact, this is the sort of film that should be punished. Is it really that hard to make a scary movie? Was this crew even aware they were making a horror film??!! A complete waste of my time and yours. I bit the bullet to get you this review. Don't let my sacrifice be in vain. DON'T GO INTO THE MOVIE!!!
