Fright Night Part 2

Fright Night Part 2 ★★★

I was never a big Fright Night fan, it never clicked, but I revisited it earlier this year and loved it, so ever since I've been curious about the sequel, plus Elric Kane over at the Shock Waves podcast has been championing it for years, so I finally decided to give it a shot, and guess what? KANE WAS RIGHT! This is a good movie!

It picks up some years after the events of the first film and it sorta rehashes the same plot, but it adds enough new elements and Ragsdale and McDowall both return so it ends up being totally fun, the special effects and monster gags are great, including bat creatures, Jon Gries as a werewolf, Brian Thompson as a bug eater, and a vampire on roller-skates!. Fun stuff, add me to the petition to get this movie released on blu-ray!
