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

Definitely polished for a vampire movie...
11 May 2003 | by stuffpuppetSee all my reviews

We are all being made aware lately that the sequel just might be better yet.The directors efforts were outstanding,and the dance scenes superb. This was quality for all,when normally,vampire movies only appeal to a percentage of us..I salute fright night 2 ..
