Michael Paul Smeddley is character from the 2008 remake of Prom Night. He is played by Kelly Blatz. He seems to be going through trouble with his girlfriend Claire. He is the second person from Donna Keppel's group to be murdered by Richard Fenton.
Michael is Claire's boyfriend and also her date to prom. They seemed to be going through relationship problems. At prom while on the dance floor he seems to be getting Claire to dance although she doesn't seemed to be into it. The two have a brief argument possbily over going to separate colleges. Claire goes up to her suite after complaining of cramps. Donna follows her up and Donna convinces her to come back down once she is okay. After Donna leaves, Claire is murdered by Richard Fenton. Back downstairs, Michael asks Donna where Claire is. She tells him that he made Claire upset and she has gone back to her hotel suite.
Michael goes up to the third floor to find Claire (who's body is seen lying on the bathroom floor while Fenton was looking through her digital camera) Michael enters the room and goes to the locked bathroom door pleading with Claire to come out after thinking that she was in there. He says that he is going to sit on the couch and wait till she's comes out. After the bathroom door opens Michael goes back in but no one is in there. He sees the closet door close and heads over and opens it. He doesn’t see anything and after saying Claire's name in silence, Fenton jumps out and stabs Michael repeatedly killing him. Later after Donna escapes from an attack by Fenton, Michael's body is found by a police officer when Detective Winn and the police search the room.
