Day 15

Movie: Fright Night 2
Starring: William Ragsdale, Roddy McDowall
Genre: Horror, Comedy,
Year: 1988
Format: VHS

Plot: Charlie is in college and dealing with the memories from three years before, when his neighbour, Jerry,  had killed his girlfriend and best friend.  Now, the killer's sister is out for revenge, the only trouble is that both Jerry and his sister are vampires. Charlie, his new girlfriend Alex and their friend Peter Vincent have one chance to save their town.

The set for the apartment that the character Peter Vincent has, is itself a vampire fan's dream come true.  The displays of vampire posters and tools {almost all the posters in the movie are for "fake" films the character of Vincent starred in} makes you feel like you are in the house of a former movie star.

FN2, is not as dark as the original movie was,  as it has a more stylized pop-culture approach; but still manages to keep enough of the horror.

What do I think I learned from this film?
When you think about something enough, you draw it to you. You have to face your responsibilities head on, and if it sounds completely crazy then it's most likely the best answer.  And some vampires like to go bowling for leftovers.
