Trivia

If Donna is in her senior year in 2008 and her family was murdered three years prior to the film's events, that would mean those events occurred in her freshman year in 2005. See more »

Goofs

Despite being one of the few slasher films rated PG13, whenever someone is stabbed, their bodies show no stab wounds when they reappear. The only character with blood stains where they had been stabbed has no holes in their clothing where the stab wounds would be. See more »

Prom Night 2008, how do I hate thee...
12 April 2008 | by AngryChairSee all my reviews

...let me count the ways.

1. A title-only 'remake' that pulls out every cliché in the slasher handbook.

2. A plot so predictable that it becomes quite pathetic.

3. A completely weak execution of all attempts at suspense or thrills.

4. A PG-13 rating that insures no gore, violence, or sex.

5. A villain that is not frightening or even mysterious.

6. A cast of characters that are so thinly written and stereotyped that we couldn't possibly care about them.

7. A lack of any effectively creepy atmosphere (much unlike the original Prom Night).

8. A script of dialog that's beyond poor - it's mind numbing.

9. A series of cardboard performances (not sure whether to blame the actors or the lousy aforementioned script for that).

10. A completely inept teen-targeted slasher remake that's not brave enough to attempt to have an imagination - or even to show a puddle of blood.

It's a no-brainer horror fans, save your money.

BOMB out of ****
