Things look chipper when Brent asks Holly to prom but the upbeat music and slapstick jokes go on too long. You know something bad is going to happen. Our villain is Lola “Princess” who desperately wants to go to prom with her high school crush Brent. She even buys a Molly Ringwald-style pink dress for the occasion.
But she’s devastated when Brent asks Holly instead so she and her dad kidnap him and create a creepy makeshift prom in her basement, complete with torture devices. Lola promises to avenge the heartbreak she feels by stabbing Holly in the heart.
It’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Sixteen candles. If you’re a not a fan of horror movies, this is a movie you might want to skip before prom.
Though the movie came out three years ago at TIFF, it’s being released in the U.S. on July 1.
