Fright Night is just...AWESOME fun!

"Welcome to Fright Night! For real."

Fright Night is good old-fashioned '80s cheese - there's no better or more accurate way to describe this classic horror-comedy hybrid. Written and directed by Tom Holland (who carried out the same double duty for Child's Play), this is a true B-movie in every sense of the word that brings a bunch of traditional B-movie clichés out to play: high ... read more

I've always been a fan of horror, I remember being a fan of Goosebumps and Are You Afraid Of The Dark as well as in addition to this developing an interest in werecreatures because of a website I went on that had various pictures specifically screencaptures from movies/tv shows/cartoons/anime that had monster/werecreature/transformation elements, and that's when I discovered Big Wolf On Campus (my... read more

For young Charlie Brewster, nothing could be better than an old horror movie late at night. Two men move in next door, and for Charlie with his horror movie experience, there can be no doubt that their strange behavior is explained by the fact that they are a vampire and his undead day guardian. The only one who can help him hunt them down is a washed-up actor, Peter Vincent, who hosts Charlie's favorite TV show, Fright Night. Vincent doesn't really believe that vampires exist, but does it for the money...

250 Of My Favorite Films From The 80's, y'all (250 movies items)

"What could be better for a horror fan than a fright night, in which old scary movies are watched late into the night? How about having a neighbor who will allow you to experience the real thing as opposed to just watching it on television? A modern day vampire flick made at a time when the mythos of the vampire was not yet twisted by the twirly Twilightisms that soon had all of Hollywood sucking out the classical characteristics that made the bloodsuckers the timeless true bloods that they "

31 Days of Horror (Halloween) 2020 (42 movies items)

" Date: 10/30/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: Happy Halloween everyone and I felt like the original Fright Night is a great way to end my 31 Days of Horror. I haven't seen this movie in a while and I did buy the Blu-Ray released by Sony last year. I don't consider Fright Night to be a masterpiece like some people do, but I still consider it to be a noteworthy movie. This was Tom Holland's directorial debut and he knocks it out of the park. I always like the characters in this movie becaus"

“I've always been a fan of horror, I remember being a fan of Goosebumps and Are You Afraid Of The Dark as well as in addition to this developing an interest in werecreatures because of a website I went on that had various pictures specifically screencaptures from movies/tv shows/cartoons/anime that had monster/werecreature/transformation elements, and that's when I discovered Big Wolf On Campus (my first major television show obsession). Basically one time I was looking through a magazine sort of like TV Guide in September of 2009 and there was a page about the movie channel specifically MGM having a vampire marathon (the four movies being aired were this one, Love At First Bite, Once Bitten and Scream Blacula Scream) and I had seen Once Bitten many times before and had become obsessed with” read more

"25.6. Netflix Kauhukomediat harvoin oikeasti toimivat hyvin kummallakin alueella. Tässä on hyvä tasapaino ja kokonaisuus oikein tyylikäs. Ei parodioi, eikä mun nähdäkseni edes kopioi, vaan viittaa ja kunnioittaa. Intertekstuaalisuus olisi varmaan korrekti termi, jos olisi kirjallinen luomus. Interfilmaattisuus?"
