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
Some good moments
Christ, EVERYBODY had to make a subpar horror movie about an annoying supernatural killer with a cringeworthy sense of humor in the late 80s.
I loved this. Much better than the first one.
4 stars for "Your mother sews socks in Hell father Karras!". Had a good laugh at that one!
Camp levels: high! Way more fun than the first movie!
