Goodbye Heart…OR…Cath-a-lick Girls

Prom Night II owes very little to its predecessor, other than the title, setting, and prank-gone-horribly-wrong plot…It owes much more to Carrie, A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Exorcist…when you get down to it, the best movie to compare it to is The Howling…it’s a seriocomic paean to horror geekdom, down to the horror-director character names. There’s also an undercurrent of what I like to call “Catholic damage”…a struggle between the characters’ guilt-ridden, shame-based upbringings and their natural, anarchistic animal desires…This conflict is portrayed wonderfully by Wendy Lyon as Vicki, the good girl possessed by ID-driven Mary Lou (Lisa Schrage), the prom queen from Hell…

"Begone? C'mon. There's no God, Buddy...and there's no Heaven. And do you know what PISSED ME OFF the most?! NO FUCKING WINGS!!!"

“Begone? C’mon. There’s no God, Buddy…and there’s no Heaven. And do you know what PISSED ME OFF the most?! NO FUCKING WINGS!!!”
