PG-13 | | Horror, Mystery
Donna's senior prom is supposed to be the best night of her life, though a sadistic killer from her past has different plans for her and her friends.
Nelson McCormick had done extensive research into proms going as far back as where and when the first prom was ever held in American history in the film, compiling detailed portfolios for the cast and crew, which had an introduction on the origin of the prom and what it represents. However, writer J.S. Cardone, when going over what would be the titular prom with McCormick, ultimately decided on a prom which, apart from the music and dancing of the Bridgeport seniors, was beyond the scale or budget of a standard American prom.
Michael is making me so darn mad. And on top of that, I have killer cramps!
During one of the dancing sequences, gold strips of confetti fall from the ceiling to the dance floor. However, when the camera angle changes and the music stops, the confetti has disappeared.
When shown on Sky Movies UK, the film features additional scenes not in theatrical or home video versions.
