As I came to the movie for the first time in a very recent marathon of classic horror pictures, I was baffled, aghast and left overcome with insurmountable eye-rolls. But I was never bored.

A mixed bag of delights, but Prom Night retains appeal through its unusual tone and care with motivation, adding just a hint of real-world torment to ground the masked killer shenanigans.

A special movie. Not by any means a great one; only barely and inconsistently a good one.

If you forget motivation, the visual trick-or-treat of slow revenge is entertaining enough.

Pop Culture Rule No. 1: Wait long enough and even the stinkiest trash gets recycled into art.

Unusually incompetent from start to finish...

By the time the killer fully emerges from the shadows, clad head to toe in black, leaping around like some Filipino ripoff of Spider-Man 3, the game is pretty much lost.

The prom setting does little except provide the opportunity for a ridiculous disco interlude, while the killings are nasty rather than scary or effective and the outcome eminently guessable.
April 10, 2008
You'll just have to enjoy the scenes of Curtis disco-dancing and wonderful moments such as when the severed head of a victim rolls across the dance floor.

Director Paul Lynch seems to capture the spirit of the genre here, but spends a little too much time setting up each murder, thus eliminating some suspense.

Because it's quite easy to figure out the killer's identity by simply keeping track of who is off screen a lot, much of the movie is just vamping for time.
