Prom Night III: The Last Kiss (1990)

Directed By: Ron Oliver

Starring: Tim Conlon, Cyndy Preston, Courtney Taylor, Roger Dunn, David Stratton

Subgenre: Horror-Comedy         

Synopsis: Mary Lou escapes from Hell and comes back for revenge.

Prom Night 3

Thoughts: The Prom Night franchise continues its schizophrenic ways in the third installment.  Sure, Mary Lou fromProm Night II, but instead of shooting for a straight horror movie, the producers infused comedy into The Last Kiss, or at least tried to.  It is almost a spoof of the previous movie, but forgets to be funny.

The Last Kiss was a direct to video release and it really shows.  I watched this on DVD (double feature disc with Prom Night IV) and later learned that this is a heavily edited version.  A lot of the gore, nudity and even language have been cut out.  I guess there is an uncut VHS version out there, for those that are interested.  The acting and direction are equally mediocre, and that is probably being generous.

There really isn’t much I can say that is positive about The Last Kiss.  It is easily the worst of the original franchise, which is pretty bad.  Sadly, it doesn’t even qualify for the “so bad, it’s good” club, it’s just bad.  I can’t recommend this one at all, but I know there are those of you out there that watch it, just like I did.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
