spoiled prom queen Mary Lou Maloney
(Courtney Taylor) in the 50's was burned
to death by her boyfriend and once again
her spirit walks the halls at Hamilton
High School trying to wreck death and
havoc to others that goes there.
She encounters a good looking athletic
depressed guy named Alex Grey (Tim
Conlon) whom she plans to kill as well
but yet seems to fall for him and
realises that he isn't doing well in
school at all as he is failing as his
teacher Mr. Weatherall (Roger Dunn)
doesn't like him and tries to prevent his
dreams on becoming a doctor so Mary Lou
changes that by killing him and making
his grades look better.
Every time someone at school gives him a
rough time, Mary Lou seems to do the
trick by murdering these people but Alex
tries to tell her not to kill anymore.
Well she continues to go on a killing
spree whenever Alex is in trouble as he
eventually breaks it off with Mary Lou as
this enrages her and plans to kill his
friends as well as his girlfriend named
Sarah Monroe (Cynthia Preston) at the
prom. Not only that, Alex is a suspect
for the murders there according to the
police but he must try to put a stop to
Mary Lou before Sarah becomes her next
A great beginning with some
people at the prom dancing in some steam
and a battered up room that looks like a
school from hell.
We have a rough conversation between
a janitor with Mary Lou as she comes on strong to him
which looked awfully stale.
There's a good close up shot on a
school principal holding some scissors
about to cut a ribbon with a finger in
the way holding the ribbon announcing the
prom reopening after the distaster as you
just know he's going to cut his own
finger and a great suspenseful shot with
the kids screaming along with some doors
opening blowing in some wind.
There's a great shot with Alex Gray falling down some stairs at a school with Mary Lou coming down and putting up
her hand with long nails forming as it
looked very Freddy Krueger like.
Many funny shots on Alex running through the hallways wearing
nothing but an American flag wrapped
around him trying to find a washroom.
We have a corny discussion with Andrew Douglas giving Alex a rough time in the washroom
but at the same time it works well.
A good shot on a teacher trying to put an F on a
paper along with Mary Lou talking
to him in the classroom showing an ice
cream parlour which looked kookie but
later on when she approaches him with two
ice cream cones and talks to him it gets
to the horror quite well as something
deadly is about to happen.
There's a good appraoch by Mary Lou towards Alex kissing him and
then tries to act forcefully romantic
towards him and then grabbing his neck
which was nicely done for a comedy
horror like this.
We also have another good deadly scene
with a school counsellor being caught in a
room trapped in a nail salon chair with Mary Lou talking to her and acting deadly.
There's a moment with Alex after seeing a corpse along with a set of
a wholesome looking room inside a
classroom with Mary Lou greeting
him like a family wife which was done
extremely hokey like.
Good shot on Alex falling down in a football field with a
shot looking up on Andrew Douglas and his
teammates staring down at him.
A good shot looking up on Alex digging up a grave in the
athletic field and throwing in a corpse
along with Andrew Douglas coming up to him
and taunting him.
Also a good shot on Mary Lou in
football gear throwing a football towards
Andrew Douglas with the ball forming into a spike
and a shot on him screaming.
A good on a break up scene with Alex breaking it off and a nice glowing effect on Mary Lou screaming
and wind blowing.
We have a rough moment with Leonard Welsh by having a conversation
towards Sarah Monroe.
A good scene with supporting
character Leah Grey sitting on a couch coming on strong
towards Shane Taylor with her
lustful words and then shouting something
There's a good shot on a reflection in
the mirror with Mary Lou speaking
evilly towards Alex and then him rushing towards the mirror
and smashing it.
Another good shot on Mary Lou at
the prom with Alex giving in
to her as long as she doesn't kill
anymore along with her kissing him and then a good shot on them
sinking under the stage with smoke and him screaming.
We have some good battling scene's with Sarah Monroe towards Mary Lou along with great shots on zombie's trying to reach out at Sarah.
Bottom line: Mary Lou Maloney
is back and it is based on the tragedy
that happened to her back in the 60's but
is this based after part 2?..... Nope. The film is very kookie with lots of dark
comedy as you wonder if it's a horror
film at all but then the horror's reveals
after the gruesome deaths caused by Mary
Lou. It's a fun film to watch as we get some
goofy performance's by family member's
and bullying jocks too as well as adding
a touch of some humoress Freddy Krueger
type killings in which they tried to make
Mary Lou be. It's quite a cheesy film but good to
watch with a group of friends to laugh
while watching the plotlines.
The acting is very
corny but somewhat good. Lead actor
Tim Conlon (Alex Grey) tries to pull his weight
as much as he can as the highschool prep
in the film buit somehow doesn't deliver
his charming performance all that well.
However, when he is dressed in a greaser
uniform he does pull off a tough
character and gets better later on as the
story progresses too with his
aggressions. There's a great reaction o nhim after seeing a corpse during a certain part of the story. A good aggression on him breaking off his relationship with Mary Lou.
David Stratton (Shane Taylor) does well with his
hyped up attitude as his friend and has a
good bubbly performance pulling it off
Courtney Taylor (Mary Lou Maloney) plays the part well
with her cold soft words
along with a great comedic evil
personality too showing that she can wear
many hats to her deadly performance as
well as looking beautiful too.
Dylan Neal (Andrew Douglas) is very kookie at a
bullying football jock in the film but
does well with his comedic timing and
menacing attitude too. Yet a nice threatening reaction
with him towards somebody else.
Jeremy Ratchford (Leonard Welsh) was not at all
convincing as a nerd in the film as he
has the studly looks to him and can't be
at all convincing with his actions
either. He doesn't pull off acting
dweeby towards his fellow actress in a restaurant scene like he should be.
There's a butt
shot on Tim Conlon after waking
up in school the next day with an
American flag wrapped around him
We spot a brief breast shot on Courtney
Taylor making out with Conlon's
finger is cut off by scissors
A teacher's hands are stabbed with two
ice cream cones and later on gutted with
fruit inside of him
A counsellors flesh melts
Hearts are ripped out
A bully is stabbed in the stomach with a
football turning into a spike
We have more good
spooky synthesizer tpye music composed by
Paul Zaza along with some sexy
saxophone playing and throws in the kooky
comedic music too.
Monroe: I don't get mad, I bake.
Monroe: While I'm here baking my face
Sarah Monroe: probably out there
having the time of his life.
Lou Maloney:(To Alex) It's
not who you go with... It's who takes you
