A TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE-like restoration may be in order to make this work, but Synapse is up to the task.

Hmm, never been a fan of Prom Night but then again, I've only watched it once. Maybe it's time to pull out the dvd and see if my feeling about it have changed.

this is cool. one of those few remaining iconic 80's horror films to not get some kind of decent release.

Glad to see other Prom Night fans. I don't get the hate it gets sometimes. I'm more excited for Curtains but this is awesome too!

I feel the same.
Thought the pace was plodding and it was dull overall.
Never found the 'slasher' genre particularly compelling though there are some good ones-The Burning, Halloween, The Prowler, F13.2.
Good to see a Blu-Ray release though.

I usually enjoy the slasher genre but I did find this one slow and uneventful when I saw it. Definitely agree that it seemed dull.
