He must've been a Vampire Fruit Bat.

Fright Night, Lost Boys and Near Dark are the holy trinity of 80s vampire flicks. And arguably three of the best vampires movies of all-time. Just recently I returned to this piece of 80's horror gold and I have to say, I enjoyed it just as much as the first time I saw it.

Fright Night is about a kid named Charlie Brewster who accidentally discovers that his new neighbor, Jerry Dandrige, is a vampire. The movie is about Charlie and friends setting out to destroy the vampire. But Mr. Dandridge is no slouch and is more of a threat to them, then they are to him.

Besides being one of the best 80's horror films, I think it's also one of the best movies of the entire 1980s. The movie is full of great performances, especially Chris Sarandon as Jerry Dandrige and Roddy McDowall as TV Vampire Slayer Peter Vincent. It has fantastic make-up effects that are sorely, sorely missing from today's horror flicks. And it also combines a great feel of horror with a realistic touch of comedy and drama. The best and funniest aspect to the movie for myself is how they portray the vampire character. I won't spoil it for you, but the guy enjoys wearing very "tata" clothes, eats "fruit" all the time, and has a live-in roommate. This movie is classic! Fright Night has a sequel that some say is equally as good, but I wouldn't be one to say that. But, I do enjoy the sequel and definitely think it's worth a view. If you're a fan of horror and vampires, this is a must see flick. Welcome to Fright Night baby!

Skillfully Combines Both Comedy and Horror

"Charly Brewster" (William Ragsdale) is a pretty normal high school teenager who is having romantic difficulties with his girlfriend "Amy Peterson" (Amanda Bearse) and suspects that a vampire by the name of "Jerry Dandridge" (Chris Sarandon) lives next door. Unfortunately, nobody seems to believe him. So to help him deal with this specific problem he turns to the best expert on the subject that he knows--an actor by the name of "Peter Vincent" (Roddy McDowall) who performs the role of a vampire hunter on a local television show. What he doesn't know, however, is that Peter Vincent is just that—an actor—and has never encountered a vampire in his life. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a unique vampire movie in that it managed to skillfully combine both comedy and horror to a very successful degree. Along with that, I especially liked the performances of Chris Sarandon, Roddy McDowall and Stephen Geoffreys as "Evil Ed". In any case, I thought that this was a pretty good vampire film and I have rated it accordingly. Above average.

A classic '80s horror

As this film opens seventeen year old Charley Brewster is kissing his girlfriend Amy while a horror movie plays in the background. He complains that she won't go as far as he would like… then she offers to sleep with him but now he is watching the new neighbours taking what appears to be a coffin into their house. She is not impressed with his behaviour. The next night he thinks he sees the neighbour murdering a woman; biting her in the neck with his obvious fangs. He reports a vampire attack but understandably the police don't believe his story of modern day vampires. The neighbour Jerry Dandrige soon pays Charley a visit and it is clear that he really is a vampire. Wanting help Charley seeks out Peter Vincent, an actor who starred in many vampire films and presents 'Fright Night', a late night horror show. He is not interested but later, after being approached by Amy and Charley's friend 'Evil Ed' who persuade him to show Charley that Dandrige is human… he has quite a shock when he sees that Dandrige has no reflection in a mirror. Initially he just wants to get away but ultimately he and Charley will confront Dandrige in order to save Amy, who he has bitten.

I enjoyed this film more than I expected; it has some good scary moments and plenty of tongue in cheek humour. The physical effects are pretty impressive and can be quite gruesome at times. The story is entertaining; I liked that nobody, including the 'vampire hunter' believed Charley until they saw concrete proof that Dandrige is a vampire. William Ragsdale does a solid job as protagonist Charley and Amanda Bearse and Stephen Geoffreys are fun as Amy and Evil Ed. Chris Sarandon is impressive as the suave Dandridge; both menacing and seductive. It is Roddy McDowall however who is most memorable; he is great as Peter Vincent the cowardly TV vampire killer who ends up doing it for real. The tension increases nicely towards the end, but not at the expense of humour, giving us an enjoyable final confrontation. Overall I'd certainly recommend this to fans of '80s horror; it isn't the scariest horror film but it is a lot of fun.
