preacher named Father Jonas (James
Carver) who is possessed by the devil
kills a couple during their prom night in
1957 at Hamilton High School and was put
away in a room locked up at a cathedral.
Years later he escapes by killing a
younger preacher named Father Colin
(Brock Simpson) and heads to the snowy
mountains to a monastery he knew from
during his youth which is a lodge up
However, the place is now a summer home
for four teens who celebrate their
graduation in their own way.
When they arrive the place is robbed and
then one of them gets an obscene phone
call by Jonas.
Jonas watches the four teens through the
windows of the lodge.
Then one by one Jonas uses his evil on
them leading to their deaths.
prologue with the prom dance along with
some conversation sequences by a couple and then a good
shot on an evil
preacher Father Jonas doing his deadly deeds towards
them with menacing actions.
We also have a great and intense shot on Father Jonas whipping himself.
There's a corny moment with a nun
scolding both Laura and Jeff on what they
were doing that she said was a sin.
Good camera shot looking up on a
cathedral with cheesy looking
A good moment between both Father Colin and Father Jaeger in the cathdral discussion what will
happen to Jonas as well as many good
takes on a room with Jonas himself lying on his bed lifeless.
There are many close up shots on Father Colin as well as him checking up onJonas in which there's a
great dark feel to every bit of these
We have a great evil close up shot on Jonas towards Father Colin and speaking
Of course close up shots on both Meagan and Laura putting on their
nylons and getting dressed but yet they
have good discussions towards one
We have great mingling with all the friends in a limo celebrating their prom
night and drinking champagne which almost
looks natural but still slightly cheesily
done at the same time.
We have a scene cheesy moment
involving someone driving in his truck with Jonas and
talking sleazy talk with him evilly
staring at him. It really didn't fit at
There's a good shot on Jonas' mouth talking coldly on the phone with Meagan on the other end acting nervous which
looked well done.
Many good shots on the making out
scene's as well as a camera shot looking
into the lodge window with heavy
breathing. There's also a great camera
shot watching Laura go get some
wood outside in the windy night which
almost gives it that Friday the
13th type of appeal.
We spot a good dark shot on Meagan trying to find some wine and then looking
frightened with Mark approaching
behind her and scaring her.
A good approach by Jeff up in an attic seeing a figure rocking in
a chair and then having Jonas turning around and attacking him by
grabbing his head holding him in the air.
I can honestly tell you this scene
was almost borrowed from Black
There's a perfect shot on two corpses on
fire on two crucifixes with a shot on Meagan and Mark looking stunned
and freaked out. Now this looks very
similar to Hills Have Eyes.
There's good adventurous moments with Mark and Meagan trying to
escape from Jonas.
We also spot some great suspenseful shots
on Mark falling down a roof of
the lodge with Jonas stabbing
the roof and him trying to hold onto the
A nice shot on Meagan cradling Mark with him
suffocating and a good camera look up
shot on Jonas throwing down a
Good dark shot in a barn with Meagan holding a rifle and Jonas standing in the doorway as well as her praying after she shoots and Jonas coming
right at her with his insane words to
Bottom line is that this one beared no
relationship to the first film or the
Mary Lou one's so it stands on it's own
with a totally different plot to it
alltogether. Some of the scene's borrow a bit from
those other cult classic horror flicks
from the 70's and 80's which I found this
film to be a bit of a tribute to them. It is an interesting story but at times
it goes nowhere since it mainly takes
place inside the lodge.
There's a great cheesy liner with the
kids proposing a toast saying "To
Prom Night... To Jamie Lee Curtis"
which they were talking about the first
film proving that this one beared no
relationship at all.
We spot some interesting cheesy effects
in the film and it tries to make you jump
but most of the times that fails. Of course we have a prologue like in the
rest of the film but if you remember each
of the prologues were very different.
This one looked almost similar to the
Mary Lou one's but with a possessed
However, this film was confusing as grad
nights usually take place in the summer
and there was snow on the ground where
the lodge was.
The acting is
quite cheesy but yet in a good way too. The cast in this film were mainly
virtual unknowns and local Canadians.
Nicole De Boer (Meagan) has the stunning
looks and the nice girl attitude and does
very well with her performance especially
her scared actions.
Alden Kane (Mark) is probably the best
actor in this film as he changed his name
to J.H. Wyman and also liked his
part in the TV series Catwalk.
He really delivers his character and
charm very well but quit acting to work
as a writer for shows.
Joy Tanner (Laura) was funny with her
rebellious attitude and proves to be a
good character actress plus had the right
looks to her part as well. She's funny when she said what they
were doing to an onscreen nun when being scolded.
James Carver (Father Jonas) was truly intimidating
and intense as his role playing an evil
preacher killing the prom students as he
has prefect growly words and nice evil
Of course we have Brock Simpson
(Father Colin) who played many different supporting
roles in all the Prom Night films
proving that he can wear many hats and
pull off each role well. He was a great
serious preacher with still expressions.
There is a nude
sex scene between Joy Tanner and
Alle Ghadban's characters.
Joy Tanner also takes a shower
afterwards and her breasts are revealed.
Some of the gore
isn't too convincing.
A throat is bloodied from a slit.
We have Jonas crushing Jeff's head but it
doesn't look too real but he has blood
streaming down on his face.
There are other bloodied faces too.
Jonas is in an ambulance and his skin is
all burned up.
We can't forget
about Paul Zaza who did the
music for every Prom Night flick that was
made. We have some good screeching sounds with
some bass violin thumping along with some
moaning sounds too. There's some cheesy plunking romantic
type synthesizer music involved as well
plus some monks chanting and organ
playing for the cathedral scene's. Zaza even redid some of his
composing from the first Prom
Night film but it sounds updated
for a 1992 b-flick like this one. His score for this was good but some of
it could've been better nevertheless.
Father Jonas: Join your slut.
Father Jaeger: [showing
Colin, Jonas in his room] In there is
Father Jonas. The devil has taken him...
He is beyond saving
Rafe: Pussy, pussy,
I'm gonna get me some pussy
Father Jonas: [On
the phone to Meagan] It's in the
hands of the lord now
Bless me father... for I have sinned...
Father Jonas: REPENT
