Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I found Prom Night to be pretty average. It has the customary slasher aspects that you would expect: pretty people in nice clothes being hacked up one by one; a killer who continually gets away at the last minute; clueless victims making bad decisions; etc. The movie doesn’t add anything new to the genre or give us any surprises. It’s very formulaic and plays out exactly like you would expect. It’s not bad, necessarily; it’s just predictable. There’s a very talented cast here that could have done something much more memorable with a better script and a better plot.
Final Grade: C
