Two men move in next door to Charley, and with his horror movie experience there can be no doubt that their strange behavior is explained by the fact that they are a vampire and his undead day guardian. The only one who can help him hunt them down is a washed-up actor, Peter Vincent, who hosts Charley's favorite TV show, Fright Night.

Fright Night (1985)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
I'm not hugely into the whole sub-genre of vampires. However, Fright Night is one of the few exceptions for a vampire movie that I actually enjoy. It's offbeat with its cheesy 80's charm and has some cool practical effects. Chris Sarandon makes for a fun vampire and has good screen presence.

It's not particularly all that scary, or whatever scare factor it did have, it has definitely lost as time has gone by. With all that aside, Fright Night is a fun, easy-going viewing experience.
