Quotes

Ronnie Heflin: I want to make a toast. To my little queen... No matter what happens. Cheer?
Bobby: Cheers.
[as they all toast]
Lisa: [turns to look at Crissy and then back] If that bitch wins... I'll hurl!
Donna: Ok, I'm sorry. Would you just explain to me, why do you care? What do you get? A bouquet of roses and a tacky tiara you can only wear to proms?
Lisa: It's not about what you get. It's like, it's about the honor, you know. It's about the respect of my peers.

A scary movie? Not really...
12 April 2008 | by cheer_chick90See all my reviews

So, Prom Night was supposed to be a horror and thriller movie. I'm a big wuss and was scared to see this movie at the beginning, but upon seeing it, it is neither horror or thriller.

I was basically making fun of the movie in my seat because it was so predictable. You could predict what was going to happen next. The young actors were alright at playing their characters, but I'd have to say the killer was definitely at the top of the game - acting wise.

Yes, I'll give props for the plot because it was good, but it's not thrilling or scary. There were almost zero "jump-in-your-seat" scenes. So, don't waste ten dollars seeing it in theatres, wait 'til it comes to DVD.
