The movie Prom Night IV: Deliver Us from Evil (1991) is a Canadian slasher film directed by Clay Borris and written by Richard Beattie. The film follows a deranged Catholic priest who targets four teenagers on their prom night. It is the fourth and final film in the original Prom Night film series.
The movie begins at Hamilton High School’s 1957 prom, where students Lisa and Brad leave the festivities to have sex in Brad’s car. Before the two can undress, they are distracted by a noise, revealed to be someone putting candles on the hood of the car. After spotting the candles, Lisa has her throat slashed by a metal crucifix, wielded by psychotic religious fanatic, Father Jonas; he then stabs Brad in the chest before igniting the car in flames.
Thirty-three years later, four high school friends, Meagan, Laura, Jeff and Mark decide to celebrate their prom night at an isolated country estate. Unbeknownst to them, Father Jonas has escaped from his confinement and has taken refuge in the same estate. The movie Prom Night IV: Deliver Us from Evil (1991) then follows the teenagers as they are stalked and killed one by one by Father Jonas.

- “Despite an above average cast and interesting use of the Catholic angle, this film just isn’t quite scary enough for hardcore horror fans.” – Kim Newman, Empire
