1/10: The most clichéd horror film...
Thursday, April 10, 2008

The most clichéd horror film imaginable. Okay. So I just got back. Before I start my review, let me tell you one thing: I wanted to like this movie. I know I've been negative in the past, but I was hoping to be surprised and actually come out liking the film. I didn't.It's not just the fact that every horror cliché imaginable is in this. And it's not just the fact that they make every little thing into a jump scare (walking into a baseball bat left on the floor? Are you kidding me?). It just wasn't scary. One thing I was surprised about: there was more blood than I thought there was going to be.. which isn't saying much.The film starts off with Donna being dropped off by Lisa's mom at her house. She comes in.. goes upstairs. Camera pans to her father dead on the couch. Spooky. She goes...

Saturday, April 12, 2008

Painfully Predictable Slasher 'Remake'. "Prom Night" is a title-only remake of the 1980 slasher flick that starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielsen. This movie takes place in an Oregon town, where Donna (Brittany Snow) is about to go to her senior prom and let herself have some fun after going through some extremely traumatic events in the past few years. She and her friends arrive at the prom, which is taking place in a grand hotel, and try and enjoy what is supposed to be the most fun night of their lives. Little does anyone know, a man from Donna's past, who has haunted her for years, is also at the prom... and is willing to kill anyone in way of his pursuit of her.I'm a fan of the original "Prom Night", so I tried to maintain a little hope in this movie, but I have to admit I was quite disappointed. "Prom Night" suffers...

Monday, August 25, 2008

Prom Night Standard slasher fare(..the kind "Scream" was poking fun at)has a psycho(Johnathon Schaech, effectively cast), a teacher so obsessed with his student Donna(Brittany Snow)that we see him murder her entire family in an attempt to have the teenager all to himself, escaping from his holding cell in a sanitarium & invading the poor traumatized girl's prom night(..quite a lavish affair, held in a prestigious hotel)murdering her friends throughout the night. He has taken a master key from a maid he kills and sneaks into the room of Donna's pals, football star Ronnie(Collins Pennie)and girlfriend Lisa(Dana Davis), slicing and stabbing various victims who find themselves alone with him, attacking them from behind with his pocket knife. The film follows Detective Winn(Idris Elba)and his men as they canvas the hotel, trying quietly to handle the situation which will eventually spiral out of control. The climax will show the...

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

And you thought the 'Black Christmas' remake was bad PROM NIGHT (2008)directed by: Nelson McCormickstarring: Brittany Snow, Scott Porter, Jessica Stroup, and Dana Davisplot: Three years ago, Donna (Brittany Snow) witnessed the death of her entire family at the hands of her teacher (Jonathan Schaech) who has a bit of a crush on her. Now, she is preparing for her senior prom with her stupid annoying friends. Once there, they start dying one by one because the killer escaped from prison and no one bothered to warn Donna because apparently her prom is too important to interrupt. pros: I got a few good laughs out of the film due to the terrible dialog and the dumb character moves.An example:Everyone decides not to tell Donna that the man who is oddly obsessed with her (she doesn't seem that great) has escaped from prison. Their reason: They don't want to embarrass her in front of all her...

1/10: In the remake game, old...
Saturday, April 26, 2008

In the remake game, old always triumphs over new. Ah, the old now-you-see-him-now-you-don't bathroom medicine cabinet mirror gag! Edgy! Ooh, the prom-date-making-her-grand-descent-down- the-stairs-in-her-best-teenybopper- regalia shot! Innovative! More than any other remake of late, Prom Night aggressively reaches out to the shopping mall multiplex crowd -- kids who are too young to notice its pervasive clichés. In fact, it feels more like a Scream clone than a standard remake, thwacking us over the head with airy dialogue about boys, hair, and dresses (one character exclaims, "Oh my God, you guys!!!~~~" in a cadence that somehow demands the use of tildes) and milking a slew of ever-so-hip musical re-appropriations (including a drab and downright funereal cover of The Zombies' "Time of the Season").There is zero style in the cinematography, editing, story, or sound design here. It's all warbly booms, balanced...
