‘Killer Prom’ Premieres on Lifetime at 8 p.m.  & Is A Thriller

Killer Prom releases tonight at 8 p.m. / 7 p.m. central on Lifetime. The movie is described as a thriller that examines what happens after a young girl loses her mother and has all her dreams for the near future destroyed.

The trailer for the movie shows just how intense it gets when Sienna tries to get involved in Cayleigh’s prom night. It also shows Sienna’s motivation could be more about how she didn’t get the perfect prom that she wants for Cayleigh.

Either way, it’s not likely that all of these characters will be making it through the movie alive.
