At first glance, Fright Night looks like another cheesy vampire film: a young man figures out that a vampire has moved next door, no one believes him, the vampire comes after him, his only hope is an old horror actor, etc. It's pretty predictable, right down to the whole thing about the boy's girlfriend bearing a striking resemblance to one of the vampire's old flames. So yes, in its own way, Fright Night is cheesy. At the same time, though, it is oh so much more than you would expect - an entertaining, somewhat creepy vampire film that features some great acting and some really impressive special effects. You expect to see really bad, noticeably cheap special effects in a film like this, but Fright Night hits a home run in this department.

William Ragsdale plays Charley Brewster, a typical horror-loving kid who just so happens to find out that his new neighbor is a vampire - naturally, no one believes him, including his friend Evil Ed (Stephen Geoffreys in a truly annoying performance) and his girlfriend Amy (Amanda Bearse, who went on to play Marcie on Married With Children). For some reason, Charley decides to be open about his suspicions, thus letting the vampire know that he knows his little secret - not a smart move, as Charley soon learns courtesy of a little visit from the new guy in town. This vampire, I must say, looks nothing like your typical Count Dracula; he actually looks like a reject from Dance Fever, making it a little hard for me to take him seriously (although the threat of "Deney Terrio" busting out some disco moves in the film's one night club scene certainly had me feeling uneasy). In desperation, Charley goes to the only man he thinks can help him - Peter Vincent, Vampire Killer (Roddy McDowall).

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Dec 31 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is a one of a kind classic. As cheezy and cliché it may seem, you have to keep in mind it was released in 1985. But the story is very good, the caracters are charismatic. This film is a "must".

5.0 out of 5 stars Meet Jerry Dandridge... Feb. 23 2004
By Zacc
He's sweet, sexy, and he likes to sleep in late. You might think he's th eperfect neighboor. But before inviting Jerry in for a nightcap, there's just one thing you should know,. Jerry Prefers his drinks warm, red-abd straigt from the jugular! It's FRIGHT NIGHT, a horrific howl starring Chris Sarandon as the seductive vampire and William Ragsdale as the frantic teenager struggling to keep Jerry's deadly fangs out of his neck. Only 17-year-old Charley Brewster knows Jerry's bloodcurdling secret. When Charley can't get anybody to believe him, he turns to TV horror host Peter Vincent, who used to be the "Great Vampire Killer" of the movies. Can these mortals save Charley and his sweetheart Amy from the wrathful bloodsucker's toothy embrace? If you love being scared, FRIGHT NIGHT will give you the nightmare of your life!

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining and amusing March 18 2008
By falcon
as vampire movies go,this one is quite fun and entertaining.it even has
some humor mixed in with everything else.sure,it is a bit hokey by
today's standards,but it's still a very good movie.there are a few
good,and gross transformations and there are some genuinely creepy
moments.Chris Sarandon,who plays Jerry Dandridge(the vampire),William
Ragsdale as Charley the next Door neighbor and Roddy McDowall,as Peter
Vincent,vampire killer and are all really good here.Amanda Bearse,as
Amy,Charlie's girlfriend is also good.but for me,it was Ed,Charlie's
friend,who i thought provided some great laughs,as did Dorothy
Fielding,as Charlie's mother who had a very small part but was
nonetheless funny.i also thought Jonathon Stark was very good,as Jerry
Dandridge's companion/man servant.i also thought the music for this
movie was terrific,adding some style to the proceedings.for me,Fright
Night is a 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars the best horror movie July 19 2004
By Stephen
this is no doubt the best horror during the eighties. i watch quite a lot of horror movies due to the fact that they are my favourite kind of movie. Although i watch horror movies they never seem to scare me but "fright night" has been the 1 and onli that has scared me. It is a brilliant film to watch. Hope u have the same pleasure as i did
