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.
When Hamilton High's Prom Queen of 1957, Mary Lou Maloney is killed by her jilted boyfriend, she comes back for revenge 30 years later. Bill Nordham is now the principal of Hamilton High and his son is about to attend the prom with Vicki Carpenter. However, she is possessed by Mary Lou Maloney after opening a trunk in the school's basement. Now Bill must face the horror he left behind in 1957.Written by

This wasn't really a scary movie. There were many scary scenes, and the locker room scene was pretty creepy, as was Jess's death. But really, this movie was so good because it had a great feel to it. It sort of took one of those 80s teen movies ("Pretty in Pink," "The Breakfast Club") and added some scares to it. There's one scene I had to rewind a few times to see again, and that was when Vicki and the other prom queen nominee were talking the day or two after Jess's death, and the nominee said something mean referring to Jess, and Vicki returned with, "You shut your f-ing (don't know if I can curse or not) mouth, you bitch!" That really got me loving the movie. It's worth watching it for that.
Other than that, the story is decent and believable--though I didn't get the affiliation with the magician's box and it had a lot of religious overtones. But there is so much to this that really makes it worth it. Another notable scene is what the possessed Vicki does to her mother on the night of the prom. You'll know what I'm talking about. All in all, I say, rent this movie, kick back, and enjoy some key scenes of greatness!
