It has been an extremely long time since I sat down to watch the classic “slasher” flick, Prom Night. So long, in fact, that I don’t think I even own a DVD version of the film. Synapse are about to remedy that problem, as they bring the classic home to Blu-ray for the first time ever. Synapse might not be quite as prolific as a company like Scream Factory, that pumps out multiple titles per month, but what they do release is A+ quality. They have shared several images throughout the restoration process, and based on that, I feel comfortable in saying that their Blu-ray release of this film will be something to behold. I’m excited, and you should be to. Check out the press release below, and make sure to pre-order a copy of your own from their website.
SOME WILL BE CROWNED.
OTHERS WILL LOSE THEIR HEADS.
SLASHING YOUR WAY ON BLU-RAY AND DVD SEPTEMBER 9!
Jamie Lee Curtis (HALLOWEEN, THE FOG) and Leslie Nielsen (THE NAKED GUN, AIRPLANE, FORBIDDEN PLANET) star in this celebrated slasher classic.
Four Hamilton High seniors are hiding a terrible secret. What happened to Robin Hammond six years ago was a game that turned into a horrible tragedy, and someone saw what they did… someone waiting for gruesome revenge! Wearing a black hood and wielding an axe, a killer brutally slaughters the teenagers one by one at their high school prom. As the spotlight falls on the newly crowned prom king and queen, the psychopath will show everyone his new favorite game to play…
