If you think slasher movie clichés and criticism of Catholic church molestation scandals go together like chocolate and peanut butter, Prom Night IV might be the film for you! Our Summer of Proms is finally over, as A Part Of Our Scare-itage prays for the souls who dared stretch out this non-starter of a horror franchise. In this episode, Sarah & Adam discuss Catholic horrors both onscreen and off, while Sarah pitches her idea for Prom Night V.
In 1990, Canadians bid Mary Lou Maloney adieu for her Last Kiss. Prom Night III: The Last Kiss was her last Prom Night, though Sarah and Adam desperately wish it was theirs, too.
Sarah and Adam discussed Cynthia “Cyndy” Preston in a much better movie: the terrific Pin.
Just in time for that Dolemite trailer to drop, Adam references Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil’s Son-In-Law.
Robert Palmer’s Addicted To Love was the basis of this movie’s opening Hell sequence. Yes, really.
Help us make the show and you can hear some boo-nus bits!
Sarah and Adam are only two films into their Summer of Prom, but they’ve already elected the late, great Mary Lou Maloney as their undead Prom Queen. Make no mistake, Mary Lou is one of horror’s greatest monsters. In this extra-long episode on Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II, your hosts discuss what makes this 50s demon great, as well as stink bombs, national treasures, and the finer points of blowjob jokes.
The elder Simpson also produced Curtains, covered on our third episode.

Sarah & Adam review one of a couple of Canadian-shot slashers to cash in on Jamie Lee Curtis’s Halloween fame between the production of Halloween and Halloween II. It’s Prom Night, the only disco-dancing, killer-on-the-loose murder mystery to feature Leslie Nielsen! Plus, your two hosts re-live their fondest memories of prom or, rather, how they both avoided it.
