NEW RELEASE UPDATE: PROM NIGHT from Synapse Films - Take it Home Before Midnight This September

Syanpse Films has been a great partner throughout the past few years and a friend to the horror fan (and smut fan if you delve into some of their Impulse line), but between the release of Prom Night and Curtains as well as upcoming release of a pile of Italian Horror classics and Popcorn, it's best to start collecting now.  Prom Night hits September 9th which is off-Prom season, but it's perfect for the upcoming October Halloween festivies. Best to get your costumes designed now.

Prom Night was one of the movies that helped to cement Jamie Lee Curtis as a Scream Queen (or perhaps THE Scream Queen) and gave us all a look at what Leslie Nielsen could do when he wasn't trying to fight invisible mental monters in Forbidden Planet. There is a much beloved, fan favorite sequel Hello Mary Lou Prom Night II along with two other sequels and a remake.

This is a must own for horror fans, slasher fans and will give you plenty to dance about. This movie has one of the best trailers around included on Haunt Love's My Bloody Mixtape, a tribute to Exhumed Films 24 Hour Horrorthon that I listen to at least once a week at the gym. Hope I don't pull something dancing around my living room.
