PROM NIGHT III: THE LAST KISS
Unlike the A Nightmare on Elm Street films, which started out serious and became progressively sillier, the Prom Night sequels started out tongue-in-cheek from the outset. Prom Night III: The Last Kiss pretends to no more than a series of campy dispatches by a tongue-in-cheek villain spouting bad puns. There is nothing more to the film than that. There are some occasionally amusing moments Mary Lou spouts Freddy Krueger-like claws and then a closeup shows they are six-inch red fingernails and the odd one-liner: You want average get Sandra Dee, snarls Mary Lou. The film, for some reason, lays into school guidance counselors with a vengeance That wasnt human, that was a guidance counsellor, says someone looking at the counsellors remains.
At its worst, which is far more often, Prom Night IIIs level of humour is appallingly sophomoric especially the announcements that come through the school loudspeaker Todays chess tournament has been cancelled members are asked to report to the library to play with themselves or Attention girls weightlifting team a class on facial hair removal is being held in the gym and attendance is mandatory.
The effects, particularly the animation surrounding Mary Lous appearances and disappearances, are not particularly convincing. Courtney Taylor lacks any conviction as Mary Lou the bitchiness comes with a dreadful vapidity. On the whole, Prom Night III: The Last Kiss is too cheerfully tongue-in-cheek a film to be considered bad but lacks anything to be much more than that.
