Prom Night Review

This is a remake of a slasher flick that I personally did not like. But this remake is just okay. It is a almost goreless PG-13 slasher film. The acting is okay. I just wish it was at least R rated. So I say okay for ages 13 and up. It is just fine.
age 14+
Well even know its pg-13 its still gory 14+my suggested rating rated R for strong horror violence, grisly images, and terror, and underage drinking, 14+.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
