Every Day Horror Day 9: Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II

Jan 25, 2021, 3:50 PM EST (Updated)

It's October 9. It's (sort of) beginning to feel like autumn in New York. I wore a hoodie yesterday! Spoooooooky. And so, thanks to that and to the fire pit full of skulls I stood around last night with friends (we're very normal), I think it's time to carry on with our little podcast, Every Day Horror.

Today's episode features comedian, writer for Bitch Media, and co-host of the Bad Romance podcast Jourdain Searles. Her selection is Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987). The sequel to Prom Night follows in a proud tradition of horror sequels that were not written as sequels but became ones to make more money. Troll 2 is about goblins but is still called Troll 2. 10 Cloverfield Lane has no riffs off classic kaiju. And Prom Night II has nary a disco dance to its name.

Also, we spend a lot of time this episode talking about a horse.

But the real focus is on Mary Lou herself. How does she stack up against the other famous female killers of horror? Listen to find out!
