Prom Night, Review
2008, ****, Horror-Suspense
Brittany Snow ("Hairspray," "Finding Amanda") stars in this story about a high school student that is stalked by her former teacher played by Johnathan Schaech ("The Foresaken," "Angels Fall").
Three years prior to her senior prom night, Donna (Snow) was on her way home from a sleepover, but what she didn't realize what terrifying act she was about to witness. Her father, brother and mother were murdered. Hiding underneath a bed, she sees the last murder; her mother being stabbed to death.
Living with her aunt and uncle, and still in recovery from the horrific events, present day Donna is trying to lay off her medicine, and begins to feel "jumpy" once again. Excited for prom, and spending one last memorable night with her boyfriend Bobby (Scott Porter, "Speed Racer," "The Descent") she soon finds out that things aren't all falling into place the way the night should be. Two of her friends disappear, and the feeling of someone watching her is near.
Many might think this flick is for teeny bopper types, but I'm telling you, it's not. Johnathan Schaech is not one to dissapoint. He knows how to play a villian, and is scary as hell. Check out "The Foresaken" if you don't believe me. What's great about him is his persistant versatility in roles--he can be your hot and sexy new boyfriend, a vampire, or a psychopath killer--like in this one.
This is definately one to watch once, if you are into the whole horror-suspense genre.
