Default Prom Night 1980

Does anyone have this on DVD that they can recommend?
My DVD player is a PS3 so although I can play R1 discs on my PC I'd prefer a R0 or R2.

Any suggestions would be appreciated - decided to build a library of early 80's teen slashers for the fun of it

I did a simillar thing - collected 80's slashers.

Prom Night was a huge disappointment, go for something else first.

You have been warned.

What have you got already?

Friday 13th collection & The Halloweens, I've seen My Bloody Valentine and The Burning, but I would revisit both. I remember seeing Prom Night and enjoying it, but we're talking 15 years ago or so. I remember seeing Sleepaway Camp and thinking WTF by the ending haha

If you're going on a hunt for 80's slasher films, then I highly recommend trying to find a copy of this book as a reference guide. I regularly borrow it from my local library.

Pricey book that, but thanks for putting the thought in my mind, I just ordered the 'Teenage Wasteland' book which I've been meaning to pick up for a while.
