Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987)

Welcome to the late 80s. This was one of those video rental boxes I used to look at and wonder what it was like. The title was ridiculous and the box art made it look kind of spooky.

The story starts with bad girl MaryLou Maloney’s accidental death in the 50s. Flash forward to “present day” when a high school girl, Vicki, becomes possessed by the spirit of MaryLou and the bodies start piling up.

Aside from Michael Ironside as the high school principal, there is almost no acting talent whatsoever. The actress who plays Vicki is about the worst you can get. Almost every line is delivered with too much emotional exuberance.

On the plus side, there was a wonderful shower sequence. Otherwise, the pacing was so slow and nothing was all that scary.

I kind of wish I had left the mystique of the video box alone.
