Never said she was being hypocritical, just thought it didn't made sense her anger towards Prom Night and not the others since they're pretty much the same material.

Prom Night is also more of a whodunnit, and Terror Train uses the same idea (killer after a group to avenge something from the past). So, she should hate TT even more if we're following the logic on what she said about PN.

Yep, great haunting soundtrack. Needs a special edition release.
i liked it because it lasted forever. usually only the 'final girl' puts up a fight

They added that after they cut the movie. Im very angry about that because I feel I wouldnt have made the movie had it been a remake of Halloween which is exactly what they were trying to do."

That seems pretty spiteful.
And doesn't make sense she hated Prom Night so much because it was a repetition of Halloween, and her next two movies were Terror Train and, uh Halloween II?
she thinks its a remake of Halloween? just because it has a guy killing teens probably. this movie isn't very similar to Halloween. she must think Donnie Brasco is a remake of the Godfather because they're both about mobsters lol.

yeah i don't get it. its a slasher. of course it will have similarities, a guy killing teens usually. mob movies are the same way. criminals make money and kill. does Goodfellas suck because its similar to the Godfather in that regard? of course not

IMO, that's partly because this film
[Show spoiler]really doesn't have a final girl, at least not in the traditional sense. Kim Hammond (Jamie Lee Curtis) isn't really a final girl as she never really comes into direct contact with the killer as a potential victim. Ultimately she serves an almost Loomis-esque role by saving Nick McBride (Casey Stevens) from the killer. Technically, this is a final guy movie, but Nick McBride's survival at the end is sort of an afterthought by the end of the film.

I don't have the Bluray yet. As a big fan of this film I'm excited to see the audio commentary and the Horrors of Hamilton High feature.
Which actors appear in it?
And I heard the audio commentary is kind of disappointing. Any ideas why?

Didn't like it. The beginning was kind of creepy but overall it was pretty boring. There wasn't much going on as far was the story went. There's much better films in the genre. It honestly wasn't even a little enjoyable for me i wouldn't ever watch it again. I blind bought a few slashers this fall and this was the only one I didn't like.

I would recommend the sequel, Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II.
It's like a dark comedy / supernatural-possession slasher with elements of Carrie mixed in. It's miles better than the original, although I like both. It's in-name-only (although I believe the High School has the same name -beyond that there's no real connection).
