We're talking about the movies YOU grew up with!

Ep. 029 – TFFP: Fright Night (1985)

Fright Night (1985)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!
