This movie was a rewrite of the original Fright Night 1980s. I did not understand why it had to be a Fright Night Movie. Other than using the names of the characters from the original movie, it could have been marketed as a different vampire movie. This was a good vampire movie. I thought this version of Fright Night was a better movie than the remake with Colin Farrell and Toni Collette.

This review is from: Fright Night 2: New Blood (Blu-ray Combo Pack) (Blu-ray)
After nearly 30 years, the original Fright Night is still my favorite vampire movie, so I was excited to learn that a new movie was joining the franchise.

The Blu-ray combo pack contains the unrated version of Fright Night 2: New Blood. This is not a sequel to the recent remake, Fright Night, nor a remake of the first Fright Night Part II, rather a reimagining of the original concept.

The new movie has Charley Brewster, Evil Ed, and Amy Peterson in Romania, on an educational trip. The professor is a female named Gerri Dandridge. (The female vampire is the only connection I saw to the original Fright Night II.) This time Peter Vincent is the host of a paranormal investigation series that explores eerie locales searching for monsters. He also happens to be in Romania, filming a new episode of Fright Night.

While obviously filmed on a budget, the movie had some great set pieces and atmosphere. The characters don’t have the great arcs they did in the original, but the movie was more suspenseful than I expected it to be.

Jamie Murray did a great job as Gerri Dandridge. While some of her performance reminded me of Chris Sarandon, and some of Colin Farrell, some of the moves she made reminded me of the Terminatrix from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. My favorite performance though was that of Chris Waller who portrayed Evil Ed (this time out, Ed’s last name was Bates). Waller played Ed somewhere between Stephen Geoffreys and Christopher Mintz Plasse, and was quite enjoyable. The rest of the cast was adequate.

There were quite a number of call-backs to the original, which I enjoyed seeing. I did miss the outfit Amy wore as a vamp in both of the other Fright Night movies, and the missing great line, “Oh, you’re so cool, Brewster!”

All in all, a solid entry in the Fright Night universe. The differences in setting and story made this enjoyable, suspenseful and exciting. Definitely worth repeat viewings for the Fright Night fan.

I haven’t had the opportunity to watch the extras yet, but these include a commentary track and some “webisodes” of this Peter Vincent’s Fright Night series.

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO FANS OF THE FRIGHT NIGHT MOVIES AND THOSE WHO LIKE VAMPIRES THAT KILL TO SURVIVE.
