Prom Night (1980, dir. Paul Lynch)

A masked killer stalks teens at their high school prom. Early entrant in the slasher subgenre, this mixes elements of whodunnit and giallo, an escaped psycho, plus a childhood tragedy to be avenged. Some arty moments in its direction; the film spawned four sequels and a remake.
