A day late in posting - to be expected about this time of the month. I end up getting too busy to both watch a film and write a review (which can sometimes take up as much time as seeing the film!).
In any case, by the time Sunday evening rolled around, I knew I wasn't going to get a written review in but I really, really, really wanted to watch something that screamed: a fun day deserves a fun, freaky, film for the evening.
I looked no further than Fright Night.
I hadn't seen in nearly 20 years and it just sounded perfect for the evening.
Folks, this film has it all:
A love story (in a way...)
A caring single parent - devoted friends (in a way...) - a horror host down on his luck - and a young man who's just looking out for the betterment of everyone.
This is a fun, fun, fun movie. Although it looks like it was remade in 2011 for some reason (I haven't seen that version yet) I'm standing by this classic in providing a really entertaining adventure for all*.
There are some downright creepy moments, and I have to hand it to the effects team - well done. Very well done.
*All is relative, of course.
Fantastic pick for a (garlic) pizza and popcorn movie night. Have plenty of apples handy, some shattered sticks of wood, and settle in for some laughs, screams, and feel-goods.
I watched this film on Crackle or use the Find It! Watch It! links on Horror Habit's side bar to locate where else you can find this screamingly fun feature.
