Prom Night 2: Hello Mary Lou
Directed by Bruce Pittman
In this supernatural sequel to the slasher classic PROM NIGHT, sexually voracious bad girl Mary Lou Maloney is burned alive after winning prom queen in 1957. 30 years later, her spirit returns to possess Vicki, a cheerleader who’s been chafing under her parents’ repressive rules. Mom and Dad soon get an eyeful after Vicki starts acting out, but Mary Lou is more focused on revenge on the man who caused her early exit from Earth – who’s now the school principal. A fun and frothy mashup of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2 and CARRIE, PROM NIGHT 2 is an essential entry in the ‘80s slasher-sequel canon.
In this supernatural sequel, the spirit of a sexually voracious teen possesses a high schooler.
Cast: Lisa Schrage, Michael Ironside, Wendy Lyon
Good 80’s horror!. Enjoyed it. Thanks shudder.. Happy Halloween 🎃 💀🖤💀 2019...
Really well done 80's horror movie. As others have said, it rips off many beloved horror movies (NOES, Carrie, even throwing in some fun Exorcist vibes) but never really becomes too unwieldy. It is a really fun romp through all of the things that made this decade so engaging in horror.
I loved it. Classic 80s vibes throughout. It borrows heavily from Carrie and Nightmare on Elm Street (part one), but to mostly good / fun effect. Also has a few original moments (locker room...). Definitely one for the nostalgic 80s horror crowd.
This movie is so fucking weird I'm almost convinced it was just a hallucination. But still, It's a pretty fun watch.
