A dim and predictable remake of an already dull slasher film, this Prom Night fails to be memorable.

I liked the way in which the teens find ever-more elaborate pretexts to take themselves off, alone, into the darkness to investigate this or that.
By far the worst 'slasher movie' remake to date, replaying all the clichés, but delivering none of the guilty pleasures.
There's no need to wear a corsage to Prom Night. And leaving your higher brain functions at home might be a good idea, too.
Rates a solid C.
A bland, timid and thoroughly un-thrilling teen thriller.
There's absolutely zippo to fear about this movie, unless you're the kind of person who jumps when formula bogeymen do exactly what you'd expect them to do.
Thankfully, Prom Night's predictable ending doesn't suggest a remake of the original's 1987 sequel, Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2. No kidding, that's what it was called.
Though a remake in name only, Prom Night nevertheless improves considerably upon its eponymous predecessor...
This do-over isn't so much an improvement over the original as lousy in a whole new direction, a nearly bloodless slasher film with fewer surprises than a broken jack-in-the-box.
One of the most memorable nights in a teenager's young life is grist for a pretty unmemorable movie in this tame horror entry that follows conventions to the letter.
PROM NIGHT is a must avoid and is the real reason why studios don't screen certain movies for critics.
Annoyingly, it's a rich premise that offers all sorts of possibilities...yet McCormick doesn't appear to be bothered.
Quite scary and not that bad of a film!
This movie may seem to be interesting when you hear about it, but when you watch it, it is so predictable. Since Donna's insane teacher is trying to get to her. So you know that all Donna's friends and even her boyfriend are going to die. This movie is cliche and also very predicable. If you want to see an unoriginal remake, rent this movie. But now having rewatched it I guess it's alright but not the best movie.
Firstly no way is this a remake of the original 1980 slasher. They are both called Prom Night and that is it, the stories are totally different! The other problem is this is classed as a horror but only a PG-13?! Pretty straight forward slasher stuff, not scary or gory but done on a big budget. Watch the 80's one it was only just slightly better!
This is one of those movies where it's so bad you can't help but love it.
