Storyline

Charley Brewster, the impressionable teenager, reluctantly comes to terms with the freakishly improbable events that scarred his adolescence, convincing himself that the undead creatures of the night were only figments of his imagination. Three years later and after countless sessions of therapy, Charley carefully stays away from his former vampire-slaying companion, Peter Vincent, however, when a motley crew of oddballs led by the cryptic Regine come to town, suddenly, Charley's past creeps up on him to haunt him. Is history repeating itself? Written by Nick Riganas

A sequel that matches it's original.
8 June 2001 | by (Oakwood, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

Fright Night Part II is one sequel that bites back and equals it's original in popularity. The plot is once again centered on vampires with key characters back only this time you have a new crew of vampires starting off with Regine Dandridge. Regine Dandridge (Julie Carmen) is back for revenge after learning that Peter Vincent and Charlie Brewster claimed responsible for the death of her brother Jerry. For a female that Regine has a great and sexy bite! This time Charlie Brewster (William Ragsdale) finds himself away at college with his new girlfriend played by Traci Lind only to have the vampire problems return, never fear enter the fearless vampire killer Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall) and the fun begins again. This sequel has all the fun and suspense moments filled with drama and humor just like the original Fright Night only this sequel just has a better look to it. Fright Night II is a film not to be missed by any horror buff.
