I’ve not seen this movie since I was a teenager. Abruptly, tonight, it’s on TV. I text a bunch of mates all roughly my age and get a whole-heartedly epic response. Everyone’s watching it. Fab flick from the 80′s and really reminds me of the vibe I got from Salem’s Lot (original) and being into all this spooky shit in my younger years; and how that’s shaped my vocation as a writer 25 years later. Utterly loved the 80′s soundtrack. This tune in particular by Ian Hunter, “Good man in a bad time.”
Then Dr Nano text’s me back to say, “When? Now?! Do you want to go watch the new one?”
I respond, “New one? WTF?!”
Bloody Hollywood! Not another remake. Oh well…
Here’s the trailer to the original 80′s Fright Night.
And here’s a contemporary one complete with standard shitty blue-smog-tint filter on the creepy scenes and zero atmosphere.
