    Similar to the 1985 Original

    The original vampire antagonist, in the 1985 film, (played by Chris Sarandon) was also named Jerry Dandridge but the main villain in it's 1988 sequel was his vampire sister Regine (played by Julie Carmen). I know I saw both films but I don't remember much about the second movie. So I can't say if this new sequel is better than it, or not, but I do know that this 2013 film much closer resembles the 1985 original (than it's 1988 follow-up). All of the characters names are the same, including 'Evil' Ed (who was originally played by Stephen Geoffreys), except for the slight spelling change of Gerri. The film was directed by Eduardo Rodriguez, and written by Matt Venne. I have no big problems with the film, it has some decent gore and frights, but it's just not very involving and is a little dull. For me the best thing about it is it's villain. It's not a bad sequel but it's also not nearly as good a film as it's predecessors.

    I have seen all the fright night movies, the classic 1 and 2 versions the remake that went to theater and now this one, In my opinion this should have been the one to be a remake and go to theater, but for some reason just went straight to dvd, I loved it more than the one that went to theater, the special effects are awesome, right from the start of the movie i was on the edge of my seat and end was also perfect, and i can't believe the blu-ray cost under 20 bucks, so if your a fan of the other fright night movies believe me you donot want to miss out on this one!

    Going in, I had absolutely no expectations, even though I love the original movies. After all, this was a straight-to-video so-called sequel to a mediocre remake at best. Well, I have to say that while the film does have its flaws (lots and lots of 'how did he get there/get out of there' kind of moments), it's surely a fun movie, and I would even say that it's better than the theatrical remake. I am puzzled as to why they decided to call this FN2, since it is *not* a sequel to the Colin Farrell movie.

    This new slant on Fright night is refreshing however I am a big fan of the originals. This put a nice bow on the first one (as did the original) and kinda paints the finishing touches on a picture, These movies of this age seem to be spit out with substantially less acting effort than the older ones. CGI has taken the forefront to true acting and it's hard nowadays to find a true hit. I am however easily entertained and love sexy female vampires so I'm in!

    WENT STRAIGHT TO DVD

    Fright Night 2: New Blood is almost an exact clone of the original Fright Night movies. There are several elements in this film that are very similar, thus this is a Straight to DVD title that suffers from being predictable and clichéd. Being a huge fan of Tom Holland's 1985 original film, I am greatly disappointed in this film. They never should

    Decent, but not great.

    This is less of a sequel, but rather a remake of the remake. They changed the settings, and the gender of the main villain, but it's still the same story of the original and the recent remake. That's not to say that fans of the series won't enjoy it, but keep in mind there is no new ground that was broken in this chapter.

    Remakes are a dime a dozen. Re-tellings tend to be hit or miss with their doing any justice. That said, Fright Night 2 is a decent re-telling. I'll admit; I never watched the remake Fright Night because I heard bad things. When I saw that this was a re-telling, I was open to giving it a chance, and it was worth it.

    I liked the remake of Fright Night, I must admit. It wasn't as good as the oroginal, but I enjoyed it. I had hope for this one also. That hope was shattered after minutes and it just never got any better. Might be worth watching free on cable if you're a glutton for punishment, but don't waste your money buying it.
