Prom Night

Prom Night (2008)   2/52/52/52/52/5

88 mins     Horror, Mystery, Thriller      

So whilst "Prom Night" shares the same title as a slasher movie from 1980 it isn't a remake of that movie. I added of that movie because "Prom Night" is just a bog standard slasher movie where a psycho killer comes to town an...

Prometheus (2012)   3/53/53/53/53/5
