“If you’re not back by midnight…you won’t be coming home!”

Synapse Films is releasing slasher classic Prom Night on DVD and Blu-ray September 9th! Prom Night was directed by Paul Lynch (The Keeper, two episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess) and starred Jamie Lee Curtis (HalloweenTrue Lies) and Leslie Nielsen (AirplaneThe Naked Gun). Here’s the trailer-it’s old and the picture needs a little help, but it’s watchable:

And now I give you the accompanying synopsis, because I’m predictable that way:

“Four Hamilton High seniors are hiding a terrible secret. What happened to Robin Hammond six years ago was a game that turned into a horrible tragedy, and someone saw what they did… someone waiting for gruesome revenge! Wearing a black hood and wielding an axe, a killer brutally slaughters the teenagers one by one at their high school prom.  As the spotlight falls on the newly crowned prom king and queen, the psychopath will show everyone his new favorite game to play…”

As always, Synapse Films chose to bring back another great horror classic, and they went all out to make it great for everybody. I love these guys. They do an awesome job. Here’s the special features they’ve included:

I'm a regular contributing writer to this website. I got into horror movies through the sci-fi monster films I watched with my dad as a kid (ex. Aliens) and the extreme amounts of zombie movies I spent a good portion of my college career watching. I absolutely love zombies (obviously), am a sucker for a low budget (or any) monster movie, and adore horror-comedy films. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is one of my favorite books, and I'm still waiting for an actually decent film adaptation to bring that fantastic novel to life. Outside of my life as a horror fan, I'm a writer and editor with dreams of turning my screenplays into movies and a love of wine and murder mysteries.
