So here's where I'd normally rant and rave about how remakes are ruining horror and blah blah blah, but after suffering through the agony of this weekend's One Missed Call, I feel like it's a pointless rant indeed. So here's some more remake news: That new version of Prom Night is due on April 11, and you can check out the brand-new trailer for the flick over at UGO.com.

You're probably expecting me to get on a soapbox about how Paul Lynch's 1980 horror flick Prom Night is some sort of underrated genre classic and how dare someone have the audacity to remake a film that starred Jamie Lee Curtis, Leslie Nielsen AND Jeff Wincott -- but nah. Prom Night is a nostalgic little diversion from my childhood, but I'd be perfectly fine with a remake...

...provided it isn't as lame as the trailer we just watched. Looks like director Nelson McCormick and screenwriter J.S. Cardone just wanted to use the title -- because I sure as hell don't remember there being any swanky hotel rooms in the original Prom Night. Anyway, the trailer gives way too much away, anyhow. As if it matters. The PG-13 remake is a lock to bring in lots of teenage bucks, regardless of whether it's surprisingly half-decent or predictably wretched.
