With Voice of the Undead coming out on July 26, I'm counting down 60 cool vampire things. Today:
The original 1985 Fright Night was a loving ode to vampire films, about a boy who teams up with a washed up horror host (played by Roddy McDowall) to face a vampire who has moved in next door. There are so many layers of vampire geekdom here, starting with the basic plot lifting a key element of Dracula-- the new neighbor is a vampire. In the original, the vampire was Chris Sarandon-- this Summer we see it all again with Colin Farrell. Here are trailers for both. The remake of Fright Night opens in August.
