In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, we ‘d like to welcome you to… FRIGHT NIGHT (1985)! Written and directed by Tom Holland and starring William Ragsdale, Chris Sarandon, Amanda Bearse, Stephen Geoffreys, and the late, great Roddy McDowall. So, the real question remains: does Fright Night still hold up after all these years?
Fright Night tells the tale of Charlie Brewster, a high school kid with a penchant for spying on his new neighbor. Unfortunately for Charlie, this neighbor ain’t no wife killin’ Perry Mason.
Nope, it’s Jerry Dandrige, a bloodsucking creature of the night! And when no one else will believe him that he’s in a battle for his life with the undead neighbor, he calls in the only man who can help: Peter Vincent, vampire killer!
