Trivia: Prom Night (1980)
  • What Could Have Been: The film was originally supposed to be distributed by Paramount, but they would have opened it in only 300 theaters. Avco Embassy Pictures gave a better offer with 1200 theaters, so the makers chose that company. Paramount would then release a little independent slasher called Friday the 13th (1980).
    • Interestingly enough, Avco Embassy ended up only distributing the film in 300 theatres (by opening in a few markets each month, pulling the film and opening in new markets a month later) due to not having money to go wide immediately.
