This was one of my favorites when I was a kid, and even now I find it entertaining if only for a mindless slasher. What's nice about this one is that it does have a huge sense of humor (in fact it's almost all like a joke) and some creative deaths and they do give us the gore we so seek. This is actually probably the best of the Prom Night series and as long as you don't expect something scary you should enjoy this. What is happening is that murdered prom queen Mary Lou Maloney is back in ghost form after being killed in a fire 33 years earlier. Then she meets Alex and she offers him anything he wishes, and even gets rid of people who simply annoy him. Of course it's all in good fun and although it's extremely unrealistic if you suspend belief and enjoy the amusing deaths this should be a winner for you.
