** The prom episode of ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' had Trina and Sinjin's subplot take some cues from Kelly and Josh in this movie. A girl who seeking the popularity of winning prom queen approaches the somewhat perverted local nerd saying she's confident that she will win anyone but would like to make a deal with him to hack into the voting just to make sure. The price for this service ends up being lust driven (albeit in a PG way in ''Victorious'' with Sinjin just making Trina be his date) and someone ignores or changes the rigged voting to announce a different winner for Prom Queen after all of that.


** [[spoiler: Kelly's]] death could have been survivable in real-life (and it dint' look like she was fully impaled either).
** Finally, while [[spoiler: Craig, Vicky and Billy]] are last seen helpless prisoners of Mary Lou, the fact that she isn't trapped in hell at the beginning of the next movie could imply that they triumphed over her.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: For many fans, Kelly and/or Monica provide the best parts of the movie, with both being liked for being decently complex characters and having some great lines.

* JerkassWoobie: Kelly is an asshole, no question. But it's hard not to feel sorry for her seeing how humiliated she is after giving Josh his SexForServices, and her look of "I went through that for nothing?" when Vicki is announced as prom queen is even worse. While vicious to Vicki and Monica, Kelly's perfectly friendly approach to everyone else, and attempt to bribe Josh to rig the votes, hint a desperation to be [[IJustWantToBeLoved liked]] and [[IJustWantToBeSpecial adulated]]. While Josh wryly suggests her higher social station, she [[{{Shipping}} seems genuinely fond of him]]. On reading on the computer screen his [[SexForServices price of fellatio]], her look of forlorn humiliation further indicates that she does indeed have a heart. On finding she went through with it for nothing, her devastated expression may well provoke a strong urge to hug her.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: While her venom toward Vicki and extravagant bid to win the prom queen vote might indicate a comedic [[AlphaBitch antagonist]], there’s a warmth to Kelly’s cheery front of self-confidence, and her hidden insecurity is played poignantly [[PlayedStraight straight]]. Her fruitless concession to Josh’s [[SexForServices price of fellatio]] in exchange for rigging the votes might have been seen as BlackComedy LaserGuidedKarma for her SpeakIllOfTheDead jibe, were it not for her [[{{Tearjerker}} quietly devastated]] reaction to losing a desperately sought [[IJustWantToBeLoved esteem]] and [[IJustWantToBeSpecial adulation.]]

*** Likewise, after Vickie calls her a bitch for speaking ill of Jess, Kelly quickly leaves. Was she ashamed of what she'd said or just frightened by Vicky's anger.



** Was Josh extorting Kelly for sex and taunting her that she hadn't won a display of his general personality or was he lashing out and projecting towards the popular girls apparently after being stood up by his own date, Monica.

** The pool of blood after [[spoiler: Monica is crushed in the locker]] might have just signified a bad injury given the amount of room in the locker vs how far back the metal was pushed. The fact that her death isn't mentioned later (in universe likely due to happening so soon before the prom) helps.

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Mary Lou ''might'' have been intended as a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, given her CruelAndUnusualDeath as well as being trapped as a VengefulGhost for decades. Considering, though, that she kills a bunch of innocent people who had nothing to do with her death, seemingly [[ForTheEvulz just for fun]], it's unlikely the audience will have any sympathy for her by the end.


* Was Mary Lou always so evil? Or was she more just a typical AlphaBitch who was driven insane by her tragic death and being trapped as a ghost for 30 years?
