Well, moviewizguy would be happy to know this movie was only listed as Worst Remake on our first voting ballot, but managed to get away without anything else...

 

From your other reports on what was on there or not, I really don't care anymore. It's not really impressing me.

This movie is best described as "stupid". Most people who like horror movies don't even like this one. There was the old Prom Night quadrilogy from the 1980's, then they let it go dormant for almost two decades, before trying to remake the first one in hopes no-one would notice. It's all too common!

Time to review Prom Night '08. The characters in this film might be the dumbest in horror movie history and I'm not sure how much of that is hyperbole. They're so dumb that I'm doing something different for this review. It's going to be the 9 dumbest moments in Prom Night.

9.) The lamp scene: There's only one way to describe this scene: there's a jumpscare involving a lamp! Most stupid jumpscares involve a cat because they move quietly and can jump from high places. They can scare anyone. Lamps, on the other hand, stay in one place and if you get scared by one, you're probably an idiot.

8.) "I just saw a creepy looking guy hide himself in a closet. Instead of looking for help, I should investigate!"

7.) "There's a creepy guy in my room. Should I try to hide and run away or just stay in one place and hope he converts to Buddhism in the time he comes at me? He looks like he could be a Buddhist, so I'll just stay in one place!"

6.) Donna hides in the closet... with the killer: Donna comes out of the bathroom to see her boyfriend has a slit throat and she sees a shadow coming to her room. So she hides in the closet. Except the killer's in it! Wouldn't someone know that they're not alone in a cramped place? Or am I underesmiating the character's stupidity?

5.) The aunt's reaction to Fenton's escape: Sick f*ck serial killer Richard Fenton has escaped! He was obsessed with Donna, so it's reasonable to believe that he'd go after her again. It'd also be smart to tell Donna about it. Her aunt, on the other hand, thinks that Donna shouldn't be told because it would ruin her prom night? Thankfully, Officer Strainger Bell lays into her for this.

4.) Officer Stringer Bell agrees not to tell Donna: Oh wait, he agrees not to tell her about the deranged killer. God, how dumb can these cops get?

3.) A shaved beard-the perfect disguise!: To get past security, Fenton shaves his beard to make himself look different. Except, his face still looks the same. If he had a Duck Dynasty beard I could see this working, but it's not a big beard. The only way the cops could be dumber is if they were fooled by him wearing a hat.

2.) A hat-the perfecter disguise!!: Jesus f*cking Christ, what the f*ck is wrong with these characters?!? I'd compare the cops in this to the cops from Reno 911 but that would be unfair to Officer Dangle.

1.) Lisa runs down the stairs from Fenton... in high heels: In certain cases, one scene can define an entire movie. The scene where Lisa runs with high heels down the stairs perfectly captures the stupidity of the film. Anyone with foresight would have taken the heels off and then run down. Maybe use the heels as improvised weapons while we're at it. But no, she runs down with heels, falls down, and gets killed.

What was Idris Elba thinking when he chose to do this movie? Grade: F
