Prom Night is a slasher movie starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielsen. That’s right, the very same Leslie Nielsen who plays Detective Frank Drebin in the Naked Gun movies. Pretty awesome, right? As you may have guessed from the title, the movie centers around the prom and the prom is very disco. Seriously, the disco-ness caught me by surprise, it’s like I Know What You Did Last Summer meets Saturday Night Fever. The movie covers all the really important prom stuff like, who’s going with who, what are you gonna wear, and should I put out?!? Prom Night is a really fun high school slasher with some entertaining kills and a cool ending.
Quality control: There are two hiccups in the video where a second or two gets repeated.
