Prom Night

"If you don't come home by midnight...

Somehow we've gotten to this late date having never seen the original Prom Night starring Her Royal Highness of Horror, Jamie Lee Curtis. Both the Prom Night (Full Screen Edition) and the Prom Night (Widescreen Edition) DVDs arrived in our mailbox today.

A so-called "remake" is due in theaters during prom season next year (April 2008) starring Brittany Snow, although the story is made au courant by having her stalked by an obssessed teacher (Johnathon Schaech).

Over at Bloody Disgusting they're all up-in-arms, as well they might be as it may turn out not to be bloody & disgusting with its reported PG-13 rating.

“It’s just taking the same name as ‘Prom Night’ the original, but it’s a different script. It’s actually more in the vein of ‘Fear,’ with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg.”
- Brittany Snow

Well, we just so happen to absolutely adore Fear (1996). I gotta tell ya, we're not all that upset. We'll see if it sucks.
