Top Ten Reasons Why "Prom Night" was #1 at the Box
Office This Weekend:
-Having no big-name stars meant that everyone was a possible victim. This kept movie-goers constantly
guessing as to who would be killed next, thus greatly increasing the box office gross.
-Having no plot meant that anything could happen, especially anything inexplicable and/or beyond
credible belief. Movie-goers who hate plot were able to buy a ticket without any fear of being confused
by a story, thus greatly increasing the box office gross.
-Having no budget meant that movie-goers weren't distracted by grand, impressive set-pieces or
eye-popping, award-winning visual effects, thus greatly increasing the box office gross.
-Having no blood meant that those who faint at the sight of blood would be able to buy a ticket without
any fear of passing out, thus greatly increasing the box office gross.
-Having no scary moments meant that everyone could enjoy the movie, especially very young children,
thus greatly increasing the box office gross.
-Having no talent on the screen meant that movie-goers weren't distracted by good or even adequate
performances, thus greatly increasing the box office gross.
-Having no product placement meant that movie-goers could focus on the lack of stars, plot, budget,
blood, scares, and talent, instead of pointing at the screen and yelling, "Look! The killer eats In-N-Out
Hamburgers! Look! The killer wears clothes from the Jaclyn Smith Collection at K-Mart! Look! The killer
found out where the prom was by using Mapquest.com!"
-Having no access to a high school gymnasium or hotel ballroom meant that the film was shot in the
executive producer's mother's basement, thus keeping the budget at zero.
-Having no access to electrical lighting meant that the production had to rely entirely on daylight, thus
the title is actually incorrect (it should have been "Prom Day").
-Having no superheroes in the film meant that there was no one to save the victims at the last second
with heat rays, high-tech arrows, ice spikes, overextended limbs, shields thrown like frisbees, freezing
breath, teleportation, magic spells, or boomerangs shaped like animals.
