Directed by Paul Lynch
For six long years, Hamilton High School seniors Kelly, Jude, Wendy and Nick have been hiding the truth of what happened to 10-year-old Robin Hammond the day her broken body was discovered near an old abandoned convent. They kept secret how they taunted Robin – backed her into a corner until, frightened, she stood on a window ledge and fell to her death. Fearing they’d be held responsible, they vowed never to tell. However, someone else was there that day and now, is ready to exact their revenge – on prom night.
In this slasher essential, a masked killer stalks four teenagers at their high school's senior prom.
Cast: Jamie Lee Curtis, Leslie Nielsen, Casey Stevens
Wow....pretty tame slasher flick for an 80’s film. Disco music and Leslie Nielsen? Campy fun but easy to see who the killer would be.
I don't understand why this movie is viewed as a classic. The movie crawled along for a boring hour before any killing began. Once the killing did begin I was hoping it would get better but it didn't. Every kill was barely shown. The killer was weak as weak can be...and don't get me started on that 5 min chase these the school. Just awful. Boring and awful. I'm gonna watch the sequel now and hope the series has some redeeming qualities. For anyone looking for a decent slasher film I recommend a hard pass on this.
it was alright
Pre all out 80's slasher. Jamie Lee is totally rockin in this film which makes some of the dance scenes bearable. A whodunit that should seem obvious. Still fun but Prom Night II is more fun.
A little "slower" than your average slasher movie, but still a very good movie. The story was good, and I loved the soundtrack!
