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

The sequence with Wendy Lyon walking around the locker room fully nude wasn't written as such. In the script it was implied that she would be wearing a towel. Screenwriter Ron Oliver was startled to see the final scene as it appears. See more »
Before Mary Lou's dress ignites, the bottom is several inches above the floor. When it ignites, it is just touching the floor. Then when Mary Lou is engulfed in flames, the bottom of the dress goes back to being several inches above the floor. See more »
The opening does a good job of hooking you, after that it takes about half the movie for things to get going, but when they do, man, you get some of the best horror-camp the 80s spat in your face. First off, the set pieces are amazing - some of them looking like they'd be right at home in a Freddy movie. Also, the main actress sells her characters transformation once possessed, going from a wholesome, high school student into a vicious, murdering bitch. The cherry on the haunted cake is Micheal Ironside, who is always welcome in any movie (yes, even Highlander 2). Then, I suppose, the whip-cream is the girls locker room sequence (boner inducing). Lastly, the ending is spooktacular, with some more incredible effects. I highly recommend this superior sequel, and (spoilers) there's another one.
