October 6, 2014 at 9:29 pm
I am from the future and I can still say that it doesnt matter.
One of my all time fav movies!
lol I actually saw Fright Night some time ago!
October 19, 2010 at 3:15 am
I love the Monster madness series, so much good old films to watch before Halloween!
October 19, 2010 at 3:16 am
This one looks kind of cool. Going to have to watch it sometime.
October 19, 2010 at 3:22 am
A classic! There is a remake slated for next year.
October 19, 2010 at 3:24 am
I wish there was a show like are you afraid of the dark nowadays.
October 19, 2010 at 3:25 am
You should do a “where are they now” for the cast of this movie…. heheh.
October 19, 2010 at 3:26 am
That WAS a good movie.
Haven’t seen it in two years though. O_O
October 19, 2010 at 3:28 am
I love Fright Night! It scared the shit outta me when I was a kid and still holds the nostalgia feeling. Great review, James!!!
Man, I hope NIGHT OF THE CREEPS gets some love this Monster Madness.
October 19, 2010 at 3:39 am
Well done on your research James, you really have put the spotlight on some great films and its wonderful to see you review such a classic. http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/thread.php?id=17424&ref=65348
October 19, 2010 at 3:42 am
Fright Night holds a special place on my shelf of classic 80s horror.
October 19, 2010 at 3:46 am
wow is it about time you did this now all you need to to id the omen i dont know how you missed that so many time.awesome review as always
October 19, 2010 at 3:56 am
This is a Great movie, Is really entertaining and freaks you out at parts
The one thing I hated is when his friend becomes a vampire, What A freak, and his laughing is so bad, I wanted to punch him,
James is right the movie has some really good special effects,
and Is really nice how they say If you don’t believe in god or have faith, Having a Cross with you doesn’t save you, so even if you have one they could attack you, I really liked that because is the only movie I have heard about the whole faith thing, I am NOT religious, but it was a nice change for the vampire myths.
The one thing I have to say is that, I was terrified of the cover art, for years when i was young I used to be so scared of that demon face it gave me nightmares, I hated having to see it whenever I went to rent movies, when I finally saw it when I was 14 I was like, This was it? seriously the cover art for this movie is scarier than the movie itself, Don’t you miss the good old days, Nowdays is a photoshop hell anytime I see a movie poster.
Killer klowns for outer space next?
October 19, 2010 at 4:04 am
Interesting movie, I wonder if the next movie you will review will be Killer Klowns from Outer Space?
October 19, 2010 at 5:01 am
Im excited but at the same time scared about the remake.
October 19, 2010 at 5:41 am
Easily in my top 5 favourite horror films of all time. Loved it too much as a kid.
October 19, 2010 at 5:47 am
Sweet review, remember watching this one late night as a kid. Good stuff.
October 19, 2010 at 5:58 am
SHIT-FUKCING-YEA! FRIGHT NIGHT!
james dude, you rock. Ive been a fan from 2007 but ive never posted until now. This movie is the reason i like horror movies today. Im pretty sure i pissed my pjs watchin this when i was 6…
keep it up, i watch your playlists over and over, its like watchin these gems without watchin the whole movies.. keepin them fresh in my brain.. plus youve covered some crazy shit ive never even heard of this year.. way-to-fucking-go.
shout-out from australia! woot!
October 19, 2010 at 5:59 am
its like the the monster squad but not all the monsters. But I did like watching this movie when I was younger and one of my fav raper use a small clip of this movie for his song. Just see it its good.
October 19, 2010 at 6:07 am
Good job on the review. Fright Night is a very good movie. The remake is going to be very different. The guy who played McLovin in “Superbad” is going to be in it!
October 19, 2010 at 6:18 am
I actually would love to check this one out! 🙂
October 19, 2010 at 6:19 am
You forgot to mention that there is a sequel……..FRIGHT NIGHT : PART II and it is pretty damn good!
October 19, 2010 at 6:30 am
Wow, I’m surprised how many scenes I recognize from this movie, despite not having seen it in over 20 years.
October 19, 2010 at 6:31 am
I loved this movie when I was a kid. Also, Hell Night, Monster Squad and the one with the monkey w/ the cymbals.
October 19, 2010 at 6:42 am
Thanks, James, for posting such a kick ass movie on my birthday! No, I haven’t seen it, but I sure as hell will check it out.
October 19, 2010 at 6:48 am
This is a great film that brings back fond memories of being a kid in the eighties when I young enough for it to scare the hell out of me. James probably knows this and chose not to acknowledge it, but it may surprise some of you to know that if you look up the filmography of Stephen Geoffreys, the guy that plays Evil Ed, you’ll find a shitload of gay porn right in there w/ Fright Night and 976-EVIL (an 80’s horror movie he was in directed by Robert Englund).
October 19, 2010 at 6:50 am
Nice video, I don’t think I have seen fright night and I have seen most of the 80s horror movies…. Also lol the intro “Monster Madness” sounded like Scott Stap lol
October 19, 2010 at 7:21 am
My mom really loves Fright Night. I love it, but not as much as her.
October 19, 2010 at 7:25 am
Are you affraid of the Dark. No way! We had the show in Quebec and me and bro use to watch every saturday morning. Man!!! Damn right that was awesome!
I been looking for this movie….
October 19, 2010 at 7:47 am
Lol i remember when i saw this was on tv long ago, shame id didnt watch it.. But im sure gonna check it out this time.! Thanks James. Its Cinemassacres Moooooonster Maaaadnes! <3
October 19, 2010 at 7:49 am
Gotta say I used to read ‘Goosebumps’ and watch ‘Are you afraid of ther dark?’. I miss that show, though still have the ‘Goosebumps’ collection.
October 19, 2010 at 8:25 am
oh sweet i have this movie lol
October 19, 2010 at 8:30 am
Cool for doing the Movie Fright.. U almost Scared me.. When I saw Fright Night I had thought U where going too give it a bad movie reveiw.. Espeacially when U where talking abt just doing “B” movies.. Great too see U enjoyed this 80’s Classic..
October 19, 2010 at 8:40 am
I loved and still love this movie. I have owned it and part 2 on DVD for 7 years now and religiously watch it every season. Also Nice reference to Are you Afraid of the Dark. A lost treasure from Nick’s hey day. More of those shows should be released on DVD.
October 19, 2010 at 9:08 am
i loved this movie when i was a kid. Awesome review, and i thought u were gonna review shitty ones only.
October 19, 2010 at 10:10 am
James, I do hope that you’re aware that it’s illegal to look with binoculars through other people’s windows 😉
One of my favorites….. James, review the Phantasm films.. plz.
October 19, 2010 at 10:11 am
Oh … and why not a couple of Dario Argento movies?
James please , you have to review The Lost Boys , i really want to hear your opinion.
October 19, 2010 at 10:16 am
I loved this movie as a kid. I must have rented it from the video store a hundred times. It’s got Herman, from “Herman’s Head”, Marcie from “Married With Children”, homoerotic undertones, and a future gay porn-star. What’s not to like?
Have you checked out the sequel?
October 19, 2010 at 10:26 am
doesn’t anyone think it’s pretty obvious that the first movie he’s gonna do from the 90’s is Troll 2? xD
October 19, 2010 at 10:55 am
I think the vamp genre is due for another modernization, since, well, you know. it’s most previous modernization failed. horribly. plus, I never liked the vampire myths that had to do with religion. can we please take the Christianity myths out of the vamp genre, please? they’re just stupid. I like the sunlight one and the weakness to garlic, those are okay, but the mirror thing and all the dumb church stuff I never liked. it’s a movie genre, not Sunday school. plus, what if a NON-christian was attacked by an evil vampire. what would they do, huh?
October 19, 2010 at 11:14 am
Yeah! James reviewed Fright Night on 19 Oct, my birthday
October 19, 2010 at 11:43 am
Surprise Surprise, they are making a remake of Fright Night, just like they remake EVERYTHING in Hollywood.
October 19, 2010 at 11:49 am
Fun fact. A rejected for being too scary version of the librarian ghost puppet from Ghostbusters appears in this movie.
October 19, 2010 at 11:57 am
Actually the director of this film “Tom Holland” directed the first Child’s Play
Actually, another funny thing is that Tom Holland’s nephew is Dexter Holland from the punk band “The Offspring” who was in a cheesy teenager horror movie called “Idle Hands”
Maybe James should review that 😀
October 19, 2010 at 12:03 pm
Got this on DVD, it’s a good movie. Glad you bought this one up James, it’s like the Lost Boys movie but with a bit of Hammer Horror thrown in.
October 19, 2010 at 12:19 pm
I wanted to see this movie when it was at blockbusters , I was eight years old at the time. Well , if I see this at fye , best buy or Wal Mart I’ll pick it up.I give your review *****
October 19, 2010 at 12:23 pm
I have to be the only person that didn’t like this film. Don’t get me wrong, the special effects are likeable and that Movie Host is good, but the rest of the film is just terrible. It’s overly cliche, poorly written and terribly acted.
October 19, 2010 at 12:28 pm
Yeah this was one of my first vampire movie when i was a kid, i still love this movie
October 19, 2010 at 12:43 pm
I now need to see this.
October 19, 2010 at 12:45 pm
SCREW THE REMAKE!!! This will always be my favorite vampire movie ever! When Tom Holland and Chris Sarandon work together, the results are an awesome movie. I actually disagree though. This movie is classic to at least horror fans! I help run a horror facebook group where we made a list of must see movies to help other members expand their horror movie watching horizons and this was one of the first added right away!
October 19, 2010 at 12:46 pm
my second and much better avgn article. please check it out http://cinemaroll.com/horror/avgn-2/ appreciate thanks. comment/like if avgn inspires you as much as he inspires me. (:
October 19, 2010 at 12:53 pm
Mmm, used to watch this film as a kid with my mum. I used to think it was a good movie though I haven’t watched it in a good while. I remember there also being a sequel which also had its moments but wasn’t (IMO) even close to the quality of the first.
October 19, 2010 at 1:03 pm
You used my intro submission! Made my morning.
October 19, 2010 at 1:06 pm
what if a NON-christian was attacked by an evil vampire. what would they do, huh?
Good question. Well in “Dracula Has Risen From the Grave”, the main character is an atheist who must face Dracula. As you can imagine, it’s not easy for him.
October 19, 2010 at 1:09 pm
i might check it out
October 19, 2010 at 1:31 pm
James, I was hoping in this year’s Monster Madness, you would finally review the 1983 film “Sleepaway Camp.” Maybe you could write a short comment on here that says your opinion on the film? Please?
October 19, 2010 at 1:37 pm
I love that movie! Thats the kind I grew up with. I saw that the other day and it was as awesome now as it was then
October 19, 2010 at 1:41 pm
A remake actually sound like an interesting idea, although, lets face it, remakes most often times suck ass. I’m okay with remaking movies as long as they’re not something classic and timeless like Psycho.
I like David Tennant but he seems a bit young for someone like Peter Vincent. I’d rather have an old guy in that role.
Anyone else feel the original film had some odd anti-homosexual overtones?
October 19, 2010 at 2:29 pm
The Anne Rice Vamps never seemed to have a problem with religious symbols.
But seriously though…dude, chill the fuck out.
I’m an Agnostic and you don’t see me throwing a whiny bitch fit about religious themes and symbols.
So calm down and enjoy the movie. Geez, the only thing as annoying as fundamentalist theist is a fundamentalist atheist.
Personally, I like those religious symbols and themes. They are part of the lore and are part of the classic vampiric character.
October 19, 2010 at 2:42 pm
Looks entertaining. The picture at the beginning is awesome.
October 19, 2010 at 3:12 pm
I didn’t know you read R.L. Stine!!! I own every Goosebumps book! That is so cool!
October 19, 2010 at 3:41 pm
oh and who did the opening Monster Madness saying? …Jack Black? lol
October 19, 2010 at 3:59 pm
This is a great movie! 😀
October 19, 2010 at 4:13 pm
James, a wonderful movie review and an awesome movie. It was my first vampire movie I ever saw. Snuck into it at the movie theaters and came out wishing I hadn’t seen it cause it scared the crap out of me LOL.
Got suppressed issues much? Taking out the religious icons in vampire lore would be like taking out druids from Celtic lore. You can’t have one without the other because they coincide with each other. Maybe study the history of where the vampire stories began and you’d understand more. In the future, please keep your ignorant comments to yourself.
October 19, 2010 at 4:15 pm
@Zelda_Boy: That question is actually addressed in the novel version of “I Am Legend,” which, believe it or not (And you probably don’t if you saw the Will Smith movie) is actually about vampires. The protagonist’s friend is Jewish so the cross has no affect on him.
October 19, 2010 at 4:28 pm
The cover art for this movie is very similar to Return of The Living Dead Part II.
October 19, 2010 at 4:34 pm
ive been wanting to watch this movie for awhile but nobody i knew had seen it, thanks James for reviewing now i def wanna see it!
October 19, 2010 at 5:07 pm
I wondered when you were going to do this one.
October 19, 2010 at 5:30 pm
One movie that I would love to see reviewed “Silent Night Deadly Night part 2”. You want terrible horror movies! Nothing beats this one! I would pay money to watch James’ reaction to “Garbage Day”!
October 19, 2010 at 5:46 pm
God, I love this movie! I was so happy to see a great review of it too. 😀
October 19, 2010 at 5:56 pm
omg before i even begin to wach this vid i have to give the guy that did the intro monster madness some love for making me laugh. that was a hillarious cinnemassacre intro. sing it dude!!! you rock! lets make a band…
October 19, 2010 at 6:23 pm
Excellent!! I loved this movie when I was a kid… I think I rented it at least a half dozen times.
October 19, 2010 at 6:33 pm
Nice one James
October 19, 2010 at 7:18 pm
hey James, I guess you can the christian symbol of a cross to your list of “things in movies I must censor when reviewing as not to offend my audience.”
October 19, 2010 at 7:20 pm
oh yeah, forgot to mention, looks like some athiest is getting worked up over this review.
October 19, 2010 at 7:54 pm
OK you recommended an awesome movie and reminded me the Goosebumps books years, this was amazing.
October 19, 2010 at 8:00 pm
hell yeah, great movie
October 19, 2010 at 8:11 pm
This movie is awesome!!!
October 19, 2010 at 8:12 pm
YES!!! Another great horror flick reviewed from my childhood. Amazing! I haven’t thought about this movie in forever. I fucking love October
October 19, 2010 at 9:10 pm
@ Butch Bitch- Happy B-day! (If you ever see this!)
Other then that it looks good. If its on Netflix I’ll watch it instead of the worst movie of ALL time. A Troll in Central Park, “Perfect” Halloween movie!!!!!!!!
October 19, 2010 at 9:18 pm
YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE FAITH!!!!! LOL
Crazy…I haven’t seen this movie since I was a kid and didn’t even remember the title. But I did remember that it had some great boobs and plenty of gore…I definitely have to watch this flick again.
Thanks James for a nice review and some great old memories. 😉
October 19, 2010 at 9:45 pm
i love these reviews
October 19, 2010 at 9:46 pm
October 19, 2010 at 10:46 pm
“hey James, I guess you can the christian symbol of a cross to your list of “things in movies I must censor when reviewing as not to offend my audience.””
Someone’s got sand in their vagina. Stop bitching and enjoy the videos.
Great job James. Just remember for every one person that bitches, there are one countless others like myself who wait all year for Monster Madness, and thoroughly enjoy it.
October 19, 2010 at 11:05 pm
To be fair, I think that guy was actually talking about some troll who went on some bitch fit about how much he hated religion (just because vampires were weak against crucifixes in this movie) a few pages back.
October 20, 2010 at 12:08 am
Why don’t you read what I wrote under my first post. In case you didn’t it says this ” looks like some athiest is getting worked up over this review.”
I’m not said athiest. Fuckin read next time instead of heading straight to the comment box without thinking.
October 20, 2010 at 12:28 am
Takes me back. Thanks for your awesome movie review love the old R.L. and Are you afraid of the Dark series.
October 20, 2010 at 1:14 am
While we’re on the subject…
James, are you ever going to talk about “Are you Afraid of the Dark”?
Is it cheesy? Yeah. But it still sticks out in my mind as one of the earliest attempts to bring horror to pre-teen television audiences.
October 20, 2010 at 1:28 am
Does anyone figured out what kind of Demon/Living Dead Billy Cole was?
BTW the red eyes at the end made me have nightmares as a kid.
October 20, 2010 at 2:05 am
Oh and, Zelda_Boy : if you dont like the “Christian stuff” then stay away from vampire movie.
Personally, The mirror part was one of the scariest part of the movie, and the glowing eyes at the end of course.
October 20, 2010 at 3:51 am
WHY. DIDN’T. YOU. MENTION. THE. REMAKE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
October 20, 2010 at 8:24 am
When i spent the night at my friends house (he had a hot mom who did aerobics) this was the only movie he wanted watch, and it was on laserdisc. Amazing what a crappy movie do to bring back memories.
Again, torrent is up, no ads or bs just watch the movie.
October 20, 2010 at 9:30 am
My sincerest apologies. Now that I read it again it’s kind of obvious.
October 20, 2010 at 1:10 pm
Actually you posted it after that and couldn’t you have posted it in the same comments to avoid confusion?
October 20, 2010 at 1:13 pm
Fuck me, sorry didn’t read forgot to add sorry.
October 20, 2010 at 2:18 pm
It seems my comment has caused a shit-storm.
@Jason no problem
October 20, 2010 at 3:02 pm
holy shit i thought i was the only one who remembered are you afraid of the dark! i used 2 love that show as a kid. also i loved reading the r.l. stine books
October 20, 2010 at 3:17 pm
Well well, this looks like a pretty good one, and if it’s in the vein of Goosebumps, which you awesomely mentioned, and looks back as well as starting something new, it is probably definitely worth checking out!
October 20, 2010 at 3:54 pm
The 80s had the best horror movies. In my opinion.
October 20, 2010 at 11:28 pm
omg I brought back 3 memories in one review! Thankyou!!!
Loved this movie, loved R.L stine and loved Are you afraid of the dark!!!!
Danm I miss those days.
October 21, 2010 at 12:50 am
James, you’re pounding through all the horror films I consider to be classic.. Great job but you should have mentioned Fright Night 2, a decent sequel. This definitely brings me back though. ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ is also a classic to me. I just purchased the complete series.
A few other classics from our day: House (with George Wendt), House 2, Wax Works 1 & 2, A few Stephen King flicks/made for TV movies, Dolls & Demonic Toys. I’m sure there are a few more, but for now, that’ll do.
October 21, 2010 at 11:51 am
Great movie. Any chance of you reviewing the sequel? Not quite as great, but still pretty damn good.
October 21, 2010 at 8:03 pm
I love this movie. Best vampire death I think. They are remaking it though, so it’s probably gonna suck.
October 22, 2010 at 2:47 pm
this is on the campy list??? this movie is solid.. i would put vamp on the list of campy before i put fright night… i love this moie tho.. UR SO COOL BREWSTER
October 23, 2010 at 6:57 am
hey this looks pretty good might check it out
October 23, 2010 at 9:55 pm
I just registered. Long time AVGN/Cinemassacre fan, first time poster.
I felt kind of stupid not putting 2 and 2 together when James said “I know we’re going with campy…” and the fact that he’s at a camp site and the movies are campy.
It was a little weird at one point, as I was formulating my comment in my head and watching the vid, I thought of “Are you afraid of the dark” just before it was mentioned in the vid. The intro reminds me a bit of AYAOTD.
October 24, 2010 at 1:36 am
Showed my wife this review tonight, next thing you know we are watching it in the Netflix instant queue. Thanks for the always wonderful reviews, you point out so many experiences that are not to be missed.
October 25, 2010 at 11:06 am
lol. “Are You Afraid of the Dark”? I used to watch that one. What happened to that show?
October 26, 2010 at 1:36 pm
It’s about damn time 😛
October 28, 2010 at 12:43 pm
WOOOW!! Other one most view!! 80’s are great X3 Thanks James ^-^
October 28, 2010 at 7:55 pm
R. L. Stine ftw
October 31, 2010 at 12:35 am
nice, an old movie i didnt remembered the name.
ill go rent it !
Will you ever do zombi 2 by lucio fulci, or even romero’s zombie movies like day of the dead or dawn of the dead.
Why not The Beyond by Fulci again ? man that was one epic movie from the same era
October 31, 2010 at 3:23 am
I was going to say… isn’t he reviewing bad/campy movies?
This is a good movie!
You’re so cool, Brewster!!
November 3, 2010 at 12:57 pm
Anyone who saw this movie last Halloween on Encore HD can understand what makes this movie perfect for the holiday. It’s scary, humorous, full of great special effects, and all around brilliant horror comedy!
December 17, 2010 at 4:20 pm
Such a great blend of classic horror and new horror. Just wondering if the forth coming remake will do it justice?
February 9, 2011 at 8:55 am
why didn´t he mention amanda bears at all? :/
March 15, 2011 at 7:21 pm
i have to agree with your review its a classic
