Prom Night III: The Last Kiss (1990)

There’s something strangely hypnotic about this light sequel, even if it’s not a particularly good movie in the end. Interestingly it follows the events from the previous movie (which itself was unrelated to the first movie), although it’s disappointing that the role of Mary Lou is re-cast here. Lead Tim Conlon seems to be acting in a teen comedy more akin to “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” than, say, a slasher movie, and while it leads to a uneven comedic tone throughout, it’s at least distinct and notable. The movie itself has a serio-comic edge that doesn’t always work, but there are a number of phallic references that manage to underline the movie’s theme rather well. Ultimately it’s too long and tries too hard, but hey, at least they did something different.

Rating: ★★ (out of 5)
