Fright Night Part 2

Fright Night Part 2 ★★★½

Ohhhboyyy it's October 2021 - 28 of 31(?)

Pretty fun! I feel like the Fright Night fanatics I've encountered over the years never talked about it, and I'm not sure why. It's nearly as good as the original if you ask me. Even though I miss Chris Sarandon, the new supporting cast is solid and the additional freak squad members are amusing. It's a little tedious watching a character have to slowly realize vampires exist again (this time a fresh out of therapy Charley), but once you get over that initial speedbump this thing rules to the end. And the payoff with the therapist is pretty funny. Last stretch of this has some rad lookin creature deaths. My favorite might be Peter Vincent spraying holy water in a vampires mouth and it just gushing out of his neck like a waterfall.

Between this and TerrorVision my Jon Gries appreciation has skyrocketed this month.
