Welcome to fright night for real....super corney but funny and entertainingbat the same time. Riddled with crappy acting and 80's movie themes it made a good addition to my vampire movie collection.

heh. 'riddled with crappy acting"...I liked this as a kid, but it never held its charm to me through the years. Still fun though. Oh, I almost forgot, "welcome to seven days of scares" LOL!

It was kinda weird hearing jack skellingtons voice coming out of a "human" face though.

***1/2 out of ****     "Fright Night" is what 80's horror cinema was all about; having fun without being overly dumb. To impress an intelligent audience, one had to actually WRITE a film and THINK about what made films such as this one work. I believe that "Fright Night" works because its writers were well-researched, and its director, Tom Holland (of "Child's Play" fame) knew - at the time - how to craft a well-made work of seemingly effortless entertainment. This is now one …

GRIPPING AND HUMOROUS VAMPIRE MOVIE
Flicking through the channels last night I stumbled upon Fright Night, a movie I have seen dozens of times, but not recently, and I was thrilled to stay up late to see it yet again.        I love vampire movies but so many can be way too gross (I like gross, but scary is better) and ridiculous, and of course a little sense of humor along with it makes it even better for me.  This was one movie that has thrilled me no matter how many times I've seen it.   …

Fright Night is a horror film based upon the ever popular vampire genre that was making a come back during the 80's.   A nosy "kid" cast an wandering eye on the new neighbors. The suave handsome man and his weaselly looking buddy strike an eerie nerve within him, making his skin crawl. He's knows something is not right with the new people next door. Foolishly, he begins to snoop around the old house and discovers things that he shouldn't have. Charlie Brewster is his name, his best friend …

Fright Night is a horror movie in its most simplistic form. A teenage boy named Charlie Brewster (William Ragsdale, "Herman's Head") believes that his next door neighbor Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon, "The Princess Bride") is a vampire. Of course no one believes him, especially his girlfriend Amy (Amanda Bearse, "Married with Children") and his buddy "Evil" Ed (Stephen Geoffreys, "Heaven Help Us"). Oh by the way, Evil Ed's classic line in this movie is, "Oh you're so cool Brewster."     Amy …
