This new Fright Night film seems to be less a sequel and more a remake with the main vampire now being a woman. While the recent Colin Farrell film was not as good as the original it was a damn site better looking than this. I would have loved to have seen more of David Tennant’s Peter Vincent.
By day Gerri Dandridge (Jaime Murray) is a sexy professor, but by night she transforms into a real-life vampire with an unquenchable thirst for human blood. So when a group of high school students travel abroad to study in Romania, they find themselves ensnared in Gerri’s chilling web of lust and terror. Charley and “Evil” Ed must stop Gerri from drinking and bathing in the blood of a “new moon virgin,” which just so happens to be Charley’s ex-girlfriend, Amy. They enlist help from Peter Vincent, the vampire hunting host of a reality show called “Fright Night,” to drive a stake through Gerri’s plan and save Amy from a fate far worse than death.
The film stars Chris Waller, Will Payne, Sean Power, Jaime Murray, Sacha Parkinson, John-Christian Bateman, Liana Margineanu, Alina Minzu, Adi Hostiuc, and Joelle Coutinho.
Eduardo Rodriguez directs.
