This just came for you… What?

Fuller here.

This is Detective Winn with the Bridge Port PD. I'm calling about a fax concerning the escape of Richard Fenton. What the hell is going on?

Yes, sir! Detective, we just received word from the hospital of Fenton's escape on Wednesday evening.

Why did it take three God damn days to notify us?

Sorry, sir. I needed to notify the board.

User Review

Prom Night 2008, how do I hate thee…

Rating: 1/10

…let me count the ways.

1. A title-only 'remake' that pulls out every cliché in the slasher

2. A plot so predictable that it becomes quite pathetic.

3. A completely weak execution of all attempts at suspense or thrills.

4. A PG-13 rating that insures no gore, violence, or sex.

5. A villain that is not frightening or even mysterious.

6. A cast of characters that are so thinly written and stereotyped that
we couldn't possibly care about them.

7. A lack of any effectively creepy atmosphere (much unlike the
original Prom Night).

8. A script of dialog that's beyond poor – it's mind numbing.

9. A series of cardboard performances (not sure whether to blame the
actors or the lousy aforementioned script for that).

10. A completely inept teen-targeted slasher remake that's not brave
enough to attempt to have an imagination – or even to show a puddle of

It's a no-brainer horror fans, save your money.

BOMB out of ****
