A decades-old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.
An unknown killer, clad in World War II U.S. Army fatigues, stalks a small New Jersey town bent on reliving a 35 year-old double murder by focusing on a group of college kids holding an annual Spring Dance.
Little Billy witness his parents getting killed by Santa after being warned by his senile grandpa that Santa punishes those who are naughty. Now Billy is 18, and out of the orphanage, and he has just become Santa, himself.
Charles E. Sellier Jr.
For six long years, Hamilton High School seniors Kelly Lynch, Jude Cunningham, Wendy Richards and Nick McBride have been hiding the truth of what happened to ten-year-old Robin Hammond the day her broken body was discovered near an abandoned convent. The foursome kept secret of how they taunted Robin - backed her into a corner until, frightened, she stood on a window ledge... and fell to her death. Though an accident, the then-twelve-year-olds feared they would be held responsible and vowed never to tell. But someone else was there that day... watching, and now, that someone is ready to exact murderous revenge on prom night.Written by

When we first see Lt. McBride as he and Nick leave their apartment, and also in the final scene, McBride's hair is noticeably shorter and in a different style to the way it appears throughout the rest of the film. See more »

Granted, as a horror movie, Prom Night does not succeed (half of the "horror" is obscured by terrible cinematography and lighting, you're kind of guessing what's going on as if it's an abstract painting or something...), but, for disco fans this movie is truly unique. Yes, by 1980 disco as mainstream was pretty much dead, it "sucked." But for anyone who has never lost their like for disco music and enjoys discovering the nostalgia of it all, Prom Night offers something interesting. For anyone who really knows disco (I know, scary thought...) you'll recognize the music as a blatant ripoff of Patrick Hernandez' "Born to be Alive" which was immensely popular by 1980. And also I think it's pretty creative to have the movie's disco love-theme titled, "Love Me Till I Die" playing during the final stalking/killing scene..I mean, come on, it's cheesy but so brilliant! My only question: does a soundtrack exist on vinyl, cassette or CD? I'd love to have it!
