Consensus: A dim and predictable remake of an already dull slasher film, this Prom Night fails to be memorable.

Nigel Floyd
Time Out

By far the worst 'slasher movie' remake to date, replaying all the clichés, but delivering none of the guilty pleasures.

Globe and Mail

A bland, timid and thoroughly un-thrilling teen thriller.

Thankfully, Prom Night's predictable ending doesn't suggest a remake of the original's 1987 sequel, Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2. No kidding, that's what it was called.

There's no need to wear a corsage to Prom Night. And leaving your higher brain functions at home might be a good idea, too.

There's absolutely zippo to fear about this movie, unless you're the kind of person who jumps when formula bogeymen do exactly what you'd expect them to do.

Though a remake in name only, Prom Night nevertheless improves considerably upon its eponymous predecessor...

Rates a solid C.

There's no suspense or perversity. You don't care who lives or who dies -- just please make it soon.

I liked the way in which the teens find ever-more elaborate pretexts to take themselves off, alone, into the darkness to investigate this or that.

This movie may seem to be interesting when you hear about it, but when you watch it, it is so predictable. Since Donna's insane teacher is trying to get… More

not scary at all, just boring. D

Firstly no way is this a remake of the original 1980 slasher. They are both called Prom Night and that is it, the stories are totally different! The other… More

Average of the 1980's horror remake as well as it didn't fright me much enough - YAWN! - looked so pathetic. Horror remake of 1980's… More
