Class of 1989: Let’s Celebrate The Year When Robert Englund Was Everywhere

[We're celebrating some of the most memorable horror and sci-fi movies of 1989 this month in Daily Dead's Class of 89 retrospective series! Check back on Daily Dead throughout the rest of August for more special features celebrating the 30th anniversaries of a wide range of horror and sci-fi films!]

By 1989, Freddy Krueger and actor Robert Englund had become fully woven into the fabric of pop culture, as the Nightmare on Elm Street film series was thriving, Freddy’s Nightmares had completed its first season on TV airwaves, and Englund had even crossed over to the realm of music after rapping on the Fat Boys song “Are You Ready for Freddy?” the previous year. And while all of that is exceedingly impressive, I feel like it was in 1989 when Englund truly came into his own, appearing in both A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child and Dwight H. Little’s adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera, with Robert taking the directorial reins on 976-Evil and also appearing throughout the second season of Freddy’s Nightmares as well.

Make no mistake—in 1989, Robert Englund was Everywhere, and it totally ruled.

It was in March 1989 when Englund’s directorial debut,

Fright Night Is Finally Coming to Blu-Ray in the States, Will Include Over 3 Hour Documentary

Fright Night Is Finally Coming to Blu-Ray in the States, Will Include Over 3 Hour Documentary
Tom Holland's vampire movie Fright Night might be a beloved cult classic, but finding it on Blu-ray can prove to be difficult. In the United States, the movie had a limited release on the format from Twilight Time, only to very quickly sell out. Although it's since been released in the UK, Fright Night still hasn't had another proper Blu-ray release in the Us. Fortunately, that's finally changing, as Sony is going to reissue the movie on Blu-ray very soon. Better yet, the fully-loaded set is going to come with a particularly awesome bonus feature, as the extensive documentary You're So Cool, Brewster! will be included on the disc in its entirety.

Released in 2016, the documentary is produced by Fright Night writer/director Tom Holland and features many of the cast and crew members from the movie. Using prosthetic makeup to look like late actor Roddy McDowall, Simon Bamford portrays

‘Check Point’ VOD Review

Stars: Kenny Johnson, Bill Goldberg, Mindy Robinson, Tyler Mane, William Forsythe, Kane Hodder, Krista Grotte, Michelle Lee, Fred Williamson, Olga Safari, Ricky Harris | Written by Thomas J. Churchill, Aj Perez | Directed by Thomas J. Churchill

Apparently “inspired by true events” (or so the opening title card says), Check Point is the latest film from Thomas J. Churchill who – until now – has worked extensively in the horror genre. Here he not only brings his experience to the action movie genre, but also some acting talent too – the film features Jason Vorhees actor Kane Hodder and former Michael Myers, Tyler Mane, too! But that pair are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Check Point‘s cast: just look at the cast list above – it reads like a who’s who of genre talent. Old school performers William Forsythe and Fred Williamson share screen time with the likes of

To Horror, with Love: Cinema’s Biggest Genre Fans – Mark Petrie in Salem’S Lot (1979) and Charley Brewster in Fright Night (1985)

[Hello, readers! To celebrate Valentine's Day, the Daily Dead team thought it would be fun to do things a little differently this year. We're putting the spotlight on our favorite horror-loving characters from genre cinema—people who have represented our own fandom on screen and, in many cases, helped bring our passion for horror into the mainstream. Be sure to check here for more of our tributes to some of the greatest horror fans to ever grace the big screen.]

As a kid, while I loved every possible monster out there, I was a total vampire nerd through and through. I’m not sure what it was that completely drew me in—perhaps it was their power, their bloodlust, their uninhibited nature, or even their immortality—but vampires were where it was at, as far as I was concerned during my childhood. Which brings me to my picks for my favorite horror fans in cinema: Mark Petrie from Tobe Hooper’s miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s ’Salem’s Lot, and Charley Brewster from the original Fright Night. To be honest, it was hard for me to choose between the characters, simply because they both meant so much to me growing up, so I felt like I needed to give each of them their due here.

Mark Petrie (Lance Kerwin) was my first encounter with a Monster Kid. While I

Examining Hollywood Remakes: Fright Night

  • Cinelinx
We’re back to dissect another remake and this time we’re taking a bite out of a vampire movie. The original version was a classic but the remake does not quite measure up. This week, Cinelinx looks at Fright Night (2011).

When the remake of the classic vampire film Fright Night (1985) came out in 2011, the initial reaction was very positive because it was such a relief to have truly evil vampires back. After the brooding and sparking vampires of Twilight started a trend of angst-ridden or lovelorn or depressed vampires, fans were thrilled that the blood-sucking antagonist of director Craig Gillespie's new Fright Night remake and his fellow vamps were hard-core predators with no reservations about chowing down on their next-door neighbor. The Fright Night creatures-of-the-night were more Dracula than Edward. It was good to have the badness back. However, upon reflection, the 2011 version doesn’t hold up that well.

Fright Night: The Enduring Appeal of the '80s Vampire Classic

Don Kaye Aug 4, 2019

"You're so cool, Brewster!" More than 30 years later, Fright Night still has power over us.

Written and directed by Tom Holland and starring William Ragsdale, Roddy McDowall, Chris Sarandon, and Amanda Bearse, the original Fright Night follows a young man and horror fan named Charley Brewster (Ragsdale) who discovers that his next door neighbor, Jerry Dandridge (Sarandon) is a vampire. Frustrated by his disbelieving girlfriend Amy (Bearse) and best friend “Evil” Ed (Stephen Geoffreys in a one-of-a-kind performance), Charley tries to enlist his favorite TV horror host, Peter Vincent (McDowall) to help him stop Jerry before it’s too late for all of them.

The movie was a hit when it came out, earning just under $25 million at the box office (in 1985 dollars) and becoming the second highest grossing horror film of that year after A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. It spawned a sequel,

Mr. Hush (2011)

Written by: David Lee Madison

Directed by: David Lee Madison

Cast: Brad Loree (Holland Taylor), Edward X. Young (Mr. Hush), Stephen Geoffreys (Stark), Steve Dash (Mac), Jessica Cameron (Julie), Connie Giordano (Debbie)

I don’t want to reveal my hand to early on this one, but then again you guys probably know by now that I don’t rip into any film to tear it to shreds. Typically, it’s for two reasons. I see what they were trying to do with a limited budget. The heart is there, but the money ain’t. Also, I’ve had to double back on my opinions of films on the first watch. Hating it in the beginning, and then seeing something or things on another viewing that shows me that I had a gross error in judgment. Well, “Mr. Hush” puts me into a purgatory of indecision.
