About Us

In the 1980s, Fright Night starring Chris Sarandon brought new blood to the languishing vampire genre. Before Lost Boys, before Buffy, Charlie Brewster's witnessing his new neighbor's odd feeding habits electrified horror fans tired with the vampiric status quo. Now, in this new renaissance of Vampire films, Fright Night is poised to again bite into audiences, with the remake starring Colin Farrell. To prepare for the remake, join Now Playing as we review the original two Fright Night films, and then the new remake!

Fright Night 2: New Blood

ECharlie Brewster is a teenager with nothing on his mind but his girlfriend Amy. But one night out his bedroom window Charlie sees a woman bitten by a vampire. No one believes Charlie's story, not even his friend Ed, but perhaps monster expert Peter Vincent can be the one to save the day! Have you seen this plot before? In addition to being the story for the original Fright Night film and the 2011 remake, it's told yet again now in the Direct-to-Home-Video release Fright Night 2: New Blood. It's the same basic story...but this time in Romania! Does this third retelling of Tom Holland's vampire tale have fangs, or does it just bite? Listen to this special bonus Halloween review from Now Playing Podcast to find out!

Fright Night 2: New Blood

Fright Night (2011)

EDracula, Lestat, Angel, Nosferatu, Spike...Jerry??? While Hollywood continues to mine all vampire properties to build on the current fang mania, the 1985 cult film Fright Night was not one with the name recognition that made it an obvious choice for a remake, but with Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Marti Noxon writing, and an impressive cast including Colin Farrell and David Tennant, this unlikely remake seemed like it may make vampires scary again. But can it live up to the 1985 original in the eyes of fans, and will it appeal to new audiences? Listen to Arnie, Stuart, and Brock to find out!

Fright Night (2011)

Fright Night Part 2

EDespite having dusted Jerry in the first Fright Night film, Charlie Brewster has been convinced by his therapist that there are no such thing as vampires, and yet when Jerry's sister Regine comes looking for revenge Charlie's only hope lies with Peter Vincent-Vampire Killer! With a new girlfriend for Charlie, a new crew of baddies, and no Evil Ed in sight, does Fright Night Part 2 live up to the original? And even if it did, could you find a copy to watch? Listen to find out!

Fright Night Part 2

Fright Night

EJerry and Billy would be great neighbors, were it not for all the apple cores they leave in the yard, and the bodies of dead prostitutes they take out in garbage bags. But while the rest of the neighborhood seems not to notice, Charlie Brewster realizes the truth--Jerry is a vampire. In 1985 Fright Night brought back the Vampire genre from the dead with its mix of horror and comedy. With Chris Sarandon as the evil, yet fashionable, Jerry, and Roddy McDowell as Peter Vincent, the fearless vampire killer, is this film's allure eternal, or should it have been buried in the 80's? Listen to Stuart, Arnie, and Brock to find out! Then come back to NowPlayingPodcast.com as we review all the Fright Night films, culminating with a review of the remake starring Colin Farrell!
