Now here's a movie that is memorable & awesome! One of the top 10 slasher films of all time if you ask me. Set in both the past & present on prom night (what a great night, huh?), this movie delivers the goods with style, blood, & atmosphere (something later slasher movies would soon forget). In 1945 a g.i. gets a dear john letter and comes home for vengeance pitchfork style. Back to the present day 1980 (i know some of you still live in the 80's anyway so...), it's prom night again at the same school and guess who shows up? By the way, if you live in, go to school at, or even work where some crazed murderer has rampaged, get the hell out of that place. It usually comes back to bite you in the ass if you don't. Well, prom night goes along pretty good til the helmet wearing killer starts to rack 'em up. Some great kill scenes in this movie are made even better by Tom Savini's loving hand. He also was the killer under the mask if I remember correctly. The 1st set of murders are awesome! Great camera work & a creepy atmosphere keep this film way above average. The guy getting the bayonet thru the top of his head and still trying to move his mouth always gets me! The pitchforked girl in the shower as well. This movie has it all going for it! Probably be a good date movie with the right girl. If you can find it, rent it and see how good slasher films can be.
