For young Charlie Brewster, nothing could be better than an old horror movie late at night. Two men move in next door, and for Charlie with his horror movie experience, there can be no doubt that their strange behavior is explained by the fact that they are a vampire and his undead day guardian. The only one who can help him hunt them down is a washed-up actor, Peter Vincent, who hosts Charlie's favorite TV show, Fright Night. Vincent doesn't really believe that vampires exist, but does it for the money... Written by
In 1988, Now Comics adapted the film in the first two issues of a comic book series which was followed by 20 more issues chronicling the further adventures of Peter Vincent and Charley Brewster. Amy was quickly phased out of the comics but Evil Ed made frequent appearances and Jerry Dandrige was ultimately resurrected. Gradually the comics became serialized but running storylines were never neatly tied up because the publisher filed for bankruptcy in 1990. See more »
After Jerry Dandridge attacks Charlie and runs out of his room, he closes the window that had been nailed shut. After Charlie's mother leaves his room, Charlie sits down next to the window and we can clearly see that it is open again and the curtains are even blowing in the wind.
Charlie is actually closing the hallway window Jerry escaped through, which is right next to his mother's bedroom door. The broken frame from Jerry jamming the door can be seen as they talk, indicating they are in the hallway and not Charlie's room. Charlie then returns to his room, where his window is still open, after his mother goes back into her room. See more »
After all this years (20) of vampire slaughtering, Blade's karate Vs vampire flicks, or even Carpenter's Rambo characters, Fright Night still offers the scent of a classic. Tom Holland's masterpiece holds by itself because of a great cast and a plot that gathers every single cliché of the genre and plays a bit with humor and a lot of effective spooks. Roddy Mc Dowall steals the movie with his over the hill terrified looser character. Even special effects are bizarre today as they're a craftsmanship result giving some scenes a bizarre concept that takes you directly into Roger Corman's "B" world. A true pleasure to watch from time to time. Happy 20 years
