YMMV: Prom Night (2008)

  • Complete Monster: Richard Fenton was a teacher who had hidden pedophilic urges towards his fourteen-year-old student, Donna, whom he began stalking and harassing. Once his obsession became exposed, causing him to get fired and be given a restraining order, Fenton decided he wanted Donna to himself, so he killed her family, including her younger brother, before being arrested. Three years later, Fenton breaks out of prison on Donna's prom night, and atteneds her prom party at a local hotel incognito, killing Donna's friends and anyone unfortunate enough to be in his way, including hotel staff. When bodies are found and Donna is taken home, Fenton sneaks into her house, slitting her boyfriends throat while he is sleeping. He finally attempts to kill Donna as he is about to get gunned down by police.
  • Rooting for the Empire: When the police after the villain are as dumb as a pile of bricks, it's kind of hard not to root for him.
  • The Woobie: Donna, her pedophile teacher murders her family, and if that wasn't bad enough, when he breaks out, he manages to kill her friends and boyfriend.
