Rating: 3/4 -- Fright Night is not a distinguished movie, but it has a lot of fun being undistinguished. Full Review
Chris Sarandon is terrific as the vampire, quite affable and debonair until his fingernails start to grow and his eyes get that glow. Full Review
Rating: 8/10 -- A playful, loving homage to the golden age of horror, yet completely its own beastly fun ride of frights and thrills. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- The picture firmly belongs to Roddy McDowall, an absolute delight as a TV horror-show host who's unwillingly dragged into the whole frightful affair. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Fright Night dances on a tightwire between satire and terror, glittered by special effects and a with-it nonchalance. Full Review
Basically this movie was made, a lot better, by Roman Polanski back in 1967 as The Fearless Vampire Killers. Full Review
It shouldn't even begin to work, and yet, strangely, it does, sort of, thanks to the assured handling of writer/director Holland. Full Review
What would you do if you realized that your charming next-door neighbor (Chris Sarandon) was actually a bloodthirsty vampire' This is the dilemma Charley (William Ragsdale) must confront when he notices some rather strange occurrences on the block. His solution is to enlist the aid of Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), a has-been horror film actor who now hosts "Fright Night," a local TV show. Together, the duo set out to rid Charley of his coffin-dwelling neighbor--but their plans go awry when the suave bloodsucker realizes they're on to him.
