Reluctantly, three troubled years after the blood-soaked events in Fright Night (1985), the now twenty-year-old survivor, Charley Brewster, comes to terms with the freakishly improbable incident that scarred his adolescence. Still struggling to convince himself after countless sessions of therapy that the undead creatures of the night were only figments of his imagination, Charley carefully stays away from his former vampire-slaying companion, Peter Vincent. However, when the cryptic and mysteriously alluring actress, Regine Dandrige, and her motley crew of oddballs arrive in town, suddenly, Charley's past creeps up on him to haunt him. Is history repeating itself?Written by
After he landed the role of Richie, Merritt Butrick was diagnosed with AIDS, which was considered an instant-death-sentence in those days. He wanted to do the movie before he died and was candid with the crew about his health, since little was known about how the disease was transferred. Great precautions were taken to ensure that the vampire fangs wouldn't actually prick his skin and draw blood. See more »
Vampires cast no reflection and therefore are invisible in mirrors. TV video cameras use mirrors. Regime's vampire performance on Fright Night should not have been viewable on TV. See more »
The Swedish version is cut with about 4 minutes. Scenes excluded are the maggots coming out of the ghoul's stomach, the death of the black vampire is shortened and Regines death is also cut in some places. Furthermore, Richie's death is also shortened to exclude a sequence of him being burned by holy water. See more »

Second bite in the right direction! "Welcome to Fright Night for the last time"
"FRIGHT NIGHT II" is a great sequel to one of the best Vampire movies ever. The original "FRIGHT NIGHT" has to be the best Vampire movie of the 80's, and that helped the late 80's release of part II succeed.
Charlie Brewster is back ,this time he's not a geek anymore and he has a new and hot girlfriend, but he denies the existence of vampires. That's his main problem because vampires couldn't me more alive this time around! Everything is going alright in Charlie's life until he meets Regine. Regine is the kind of woman that every man would like to have in their home: she's hot, sensual, and she knows how to be sexy. Now, there's a little problem with her: She's a vampire, and she wants to take revenge for her brother's death. Unknown to Charlie, Regine is Jerry Dandridge's sister and now he has to pay for Jerry's death. The same thread goes for Mr. Peter Vincent "The Vampire Killer" who helped Charlie in the previous film.
Charlie and Mr. Vincent team up again for a second and last time in a deadly battle against vampires... Unlike in the original "FRIGHT NIGHT", this time they are ready and they have no fear for vampires.
FRIGHT NIGHT II is a great vampire/horror movie. In some moments, you can feel the spirit of the original FRIGHT NIGHT, and that makes this movie better. A rolling skater vampire, a vampire that eats insects, and some Evil Ed style weirdo are present to irritate Charlie and Mr. Vincent before they face the sexy (but deadly) Regine Dandridge in the last FRIGHT NIGHT battle.
The ending is great, I won't give away it but you have to check it out carefully. Peter Vincent's last scene is stuff for legend, and he's still the best Vampire Killer in a movie. Check out this movie with high expectations, it won't disappoint you.
