Fright Night Part II Movie Review

The original Fright Night is a mini classic of gore and gags -- so why wouldn't you follow it up with a sequel?

Fright Night Part II picks up three years later, after Charley (William Ragsdale) has been therapized into believing that vampires don't exist, which does him little good when the sister (Julie Carmen) of Chris Sarandon's vampire from Fright I, comes after him for vengeance. Soon enough Charley's turning vamp himself... so it's Roddy McDowall's vampire hunter to the rescue once again.

Fright Night Part II went pretty much straight to video in 1989, but fans of the original will find something worth watching here. It's main failing is in the humor department -- the jokes are stale and err on the side of one-liners instead of anything truly memorable. The remainder of the script is a fairly standard slash-and-grab vampire movie, with the usual "I can't eat garlic" revelations, culminating in a showdown of epic proportions.
