PROM NIGHT IV: DELIVER US FROM EVIL (1992) ** ½

After the ho-hum original and two fun sequels, this, the fourth and final entry in the Prom Night series was released. It has nothing to do with the other movies, although part of it does take place at Hamilton High, the same school from the sequels. It’s a pretty generic slasher-terrorizing-a-bunch-of-teens-in-an-isolated-house movie. In the prologue, a crazy priest kills a couple making out in 1957. When his fellow priests find him, they lock him up in the cellar of the church. 35 years later, the church puts a young priest in charge of watching the psycho (who miraculously hasn’t aged). When the killer escapes he targets some sinning teenagers (Who make a toast to Jamie Lee Curtis!) who are partying at an abandoned monastery. The killer quotes scripture while impaling the kids with a sharpened cross. The best parts of the movie are the bodies of the crucified kids being set on fire and a pretty sweet rooftop stalking sequence. There’s little nudity, but the blood is plentiful and it moves quickly enough to qualify as a fairly entertaining, if uninspired outing of the series. Like all of the Prom Night sequels, it was made in Canada and produced by Ray (the star of The Wizard of Gore) Sager.
