Fright Night

Watched Fright Night over the weekend. I had never seen it, and so I figured it was time to catch up. I don't have a whole lot to say, largely because most of the themes have been thoroughly mined, and perhaps more successfully in other films. Some of the special effects were terrific, with a great sort of retro feel (for more discussion of why that's awesome check out Episode 18 of the podcast). One aspect of the film that really cracked me up was how they tried to sex up Amanda Bearse, who played the main love interest. Her haircut was tragically 80s. It should also be noted that Ms. Bearse was 27 at the time and playing an 18 year old (pretty convincingly) and would go on to star in over 200 episodes of Married with Children as Marcy only two years later.
