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
Great 80s horror and much more fun and entertaining than the first one. It's super strange, with great use of teen stereotypes. The horse grosses me out every time.
A fairly entertaining slice of 80s cheese. There is relatively little sex and gore but there are a lot of goofy Nightmare on Elm Street style effects. The first half is really dull but it picks up in the second half. As an added bonus, Michael Ironside actually is a lead character and not just a cameo as I'd assumed. Also, there is a shower scene around the 1 hour mark that makes the entire flick worth seeing.
An amusing enough slice of 80s cheese. Relatively low on sex and violence but has a fair amount of goofy, Nightmare on Elm Street style effects. First half is pretty dull but it picks up in the second. Never feels anything like a sequel to Prom Night. Bonuses are that Michael Ironside actually is a lead character and not just a cameo as I'd assumed and there's a shower scene at about the 1 hour mark that makes the whole movie worth watching.
My favorite of the Prom Night movies. Definitely part of my 80s must-see playlist.
Classic horror flick. Loved it! Forgot how good it was!
