Synopsis:
Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale) is a normal American teenager whose mother thinks he watches too many late night horror films. Charley's life is pretty uneventful - until he becomes convinced that his suave, yet sinister, neighbour Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon) is a vampire. No-one, least of all the police, will believe that Dandridge is the vicious killer responsible for a spate of bizarre murders. Charley finds an ally in Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), a former horror film star and host of TV's Fright Night Theatre, in his quest to nail the debonair bloodsucker. But then the nightmare really begins...

A great 80's vampire movie with lots of action and humour - Fright Night review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
22/11/2005

Considering 'Fright Night' is a film now over 20 years old it's still a great vampire flick, mainly because it doesn't take itself too seriously and also due to a great cast which are both engaging and talented. The real star though is Roddy MacDowall, he brings just the right amount of hamminess, nobility and cowardice to 'TV vampire hunter Peter Vincent'. The film is filled with subtle references to past classic vampire movies, and does a great job of integrating vampire folklore into a world where everyone thinks vampires only exist in the movies. Overall, 'Fright Night' is a great film with excellent acting, a witty and intelligent script, a classic 80's soundtrack and visual effects that still hold up well by today's standards, and to top it off a finale that'll knocks your socks off! If you're a horror fan this is a must see movie!
