Starring Leslie Nielsen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eddie Benton, Robert A. Silverman, Michael Tough

(5-Okay Film)

Basic. Entertaining. Forgettable.

Formulaic slasher film, but it’s a good formula. What was to be a special night for a group of teenagers, prom night, becomes a nightmare as an old episode comes back to haunt them (and kill them). Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis stars as the kind sister of a boy murdered years before; his death being the catalyst for the night’s events. Not original in the slightest, or ever truly surprising, but as your basic horror film, it entertains.
