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
Such an 80s horror film... in both good and bad ways.
This is one of my favorite 80s slasher flicks. It's one of those beloved childhood movies that shaped my taste for the genre.
For as silly and derivative as this one is, it goes to some pretty dark places, and gets surprisingly artistic and creepy at times. The print can get a little grainy and dark, but surprisingly good cinematography as well. Solid 80's title. Totally a Gem, plus Michael Ironside is always a bonus.
So much fun! So far it’s my favorite 80s slasher flick.
