Fun Box Monster Podcast #36 Hello Mary Lou : Prom Night 2 (1987)
If you put Carrie, The Exorcist, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Degrassi Jr. High into a blender, the film smoothie that you'd pour out would look suspiciously like Prom Night 2. When Michael Ironsides accidentally kills his horrid, abusive girlfriend with a stink bomb, her soul gets trapped in a piece of luggage. Twenty-fiveish years later, a plain-Jane blonde girl named Vicky, with an abusive uptight religious mother (and father who is only there to repel any copyright claims from Stephen King), finds said soul-trunk and opens it, freeing fifties bad-girl/burn victim, Mary Lou. Mary Lou's ghost keeps swiping at poor Vicky and missing, like a monster in an Abbot and Costello film, until she finally drowns her in a chalkboard, taking over her body. Once she's in there, it's nothing but fifties style heavy-petting and prom preparations. Oh, also, murder. Will Vicky be spared? Will she get to keep her prom sash? Will the principal of this school face any consequences for shooting one of the children in front of an entire auditorium full of witnesses? Join Matt and Tristan as they walk nude through the Canadian locker room of 1987's Canuxploitation classic, Hello Mary Lou : Prom Night 2.
