"Fright Night," is a very campy flick but campy in a good way. A teenager named Charley Brewster thinks that his neighbor is a vampire, so he tells his mom who doesn't believe and his girlfriend and friend, they then think that he's going crazy until they see that the neighbor is actually a vampire. Now they must stop him before he kills anyone else in the neighborhood. That's pretty much the movie, the mix of horror and comedy works well throughout the movie.
Chris Sarandon starred as the suave but yet killer vampire, who by the way makes the movie. He also makes us believe he's innocent though the watcher knows exactly. Who also makes the movie is Roddy McDowall as the horror host that Charley recruits to help him defeat the vampire but he's also quite cowardly. His name Peter Vincent takes from the classic actors, Peter Cushing and Vincent Price. Anyway, Our teenagers were played by William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse (as the girlfriend) and Stephen Geoffreys (Evil, the friend) all were in the movie.
The vampires in the movie look like killer sharks or something with all the teeth, terrifyingly hookey. It's neat though the way the vampires look though. For this reviewer the movie is just the perfect 'teenage' horror picture, it's up there with other 80s vampire films like for example, "The Lost Boys." The movie is between 3 1/2 stars to 4, it's campy but yet it's that perfect mix of humor and vampires in it. It's one of those 80s films hat everyone should watch at least once or in this reviewers case like 10 times.
