The first Prom Night was a whodunit slasher with a simple story and actors abnormally big for a production of the type. The first sequel introduced a strong, funky supernatural element that proved successful despite a cast mostly unknown. Part 3 also takes this path, but is more superficial about its ambiance, its scares, its gore and the taboos it tackles.
What was kinky is now vanilla and what was dark is now amusing more than it is frightening. As a trademark, Mari Lou Maloney, the antagonist, still spits out one-liners coined in the 50’s. She has been recast and it drills another hole in continuity, sadly. It’s a shame because this movie, like the two previous ones, can be summed up as quintessential horror but not as part of a whole.
Where Part 2 had a case of possession, this one depicts a manipulative affectional and sexual bond between a human and a ghost; in some cases with the straightest of faces. Ironically, this is the film’s main attraction. Suspending disbelief may in fact lead you to love this hidden gem more than initially expected. The effects aren't all great, but the pace is effective and the story captivating.
