This low-budget, tongue-in-cheek horror film of the slasher genre -- which had recently been popularized by Halloween (1978) -- stars that film's lead, Jamie Lee Curtis, as Kim Hammond, a prom queen who becomes a scream queen. Six years ago, a little girl was taunted by four classmates and fell to her death from an abandoned schoolhouse. The quartet of kids promised to keep their complicity in the accident a secret. Now it's their prom night and they've got the jitters because they have recently been receiving phone calls and notes from an ominous, unknown individual claiming to have witnessed the girl's death and vowing revenge. At the prom, the four become fatal victims one by one of a mysterious, axe-wielding, masked, and hooded stalker. The many possibilities of the murderer's identity include Kim, who is the little dead girl's sister, her school-principal father (Leslie Nielsen), or her disc-jockey brother, Alex (Michael Tough).

Prom Night is one of the best slasher films ever, even if parts of it weren't original. The film centers around a group of kids: Wendy, Nick, Jude, and Kelly who accidentally killed the sister of their fellow classmates, Kim and Alex, when they were all 8. It's now 10 years later, and all six of them are about to enjoy their senior prom. That is, until the four "murderers" are each terrorized and harassed by an unseen assaliant. Kim knows something's wrong and tries to find out what's going on, with her boyfriend, Nick, who she doesn't know killed her sister by accident. But all hell breaks loose, once prom begins, as each of the accused begin to disappear and die one by one, leading to an unforgettable showdown on the dance floor. It's not who you go to prom with that matters, it's who kills you first.....

Jamie Lee Curtis in the movie "Prom Night" is great,but the movie was o.k.The story line is cool, but it could have been better.The movie over all though is great. It was diffently better then "Prom Night 3:The Last Kiss".

I too hated this movie and had very high expectations after having watched the superb Halloween that also starred Jamie Lee Curtis. While Halloween was superb Prom Night was horrible and one of the most horrible horror movies I have ever watched despite having great actors like Jmaie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielsen. The only horror movie worse than Prom Night is an awful movie called Killer Party!

I didn't find this film terrifying, but I did enjoy the surprise ending, and watching Jamie Lee Curtis Disco was amazingly entertaining. I wonder if she can do it now?? A good film that became a cult classic, rent it and watch it for a fun night. ----Joe.
