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
A decent sequel that brings tons of entertainment and cool kills!
very campy with death by computer and more!
fun, funny, and campy, where (spoiler) characters you care about die in gruesome ways. very inventive fx and set pieces. Wendy Lyon (Vickie), Michael Ironside (Principal Nordham), and Lisa Schrage (Mary Lou) give especially good performances, but honestly the whole cast is fun. when i was a kid, the video cover for this scared me, so I'm happy to find it here on Shudder
I was surprised by how much I liked this movie.
Meh. It's an improvement over the original-barely, but is derivative of better movies it apes, namely Nightmare on Elm Street, Carrie, hell- it even snatches cinematography from Evil Dead. Add in bad acting, cliched motivations and actions and you're left with a few decent efx and the beloved Michael Ironside as a protagonist. You could and should skip the Prom Night "franchise" until youve seen EVERYTHING else. 1 and a half skull.
