The original Fright Night written by Tom Holland.
In the outskirts of Las Vegas Charlie’s mum fancies the man who has moved in next door, but he finds out that the object of her interest is actually a vampire who has a young woman imprisoned. The only person who believes the story is a magician who has a vampire stage act – but who packs his bag in preparation for escape rather than lending a hand.
We also see the vampire at work, biting young women’s necks and some of magician’s environment which involves actresses in their underwear. There are severed limbs, and vampires being staked, at one time with an estate agent’s sign, and a lot of time in the dark in various places.
I did not see the original, and so have nothing to compare this with, but it was fun, and we were to find out quite early on that this vampire is “very strong” and so cannot be dealt with using traditional anti-vampire techniques. If you like this sort of thing, give it a go.
