The picture firmly belongs to Roddy McDowall, an absolute delight as a TV horror-show host who's unwillingly dragged into the whole frightful affair.

[Holland] serves up the oldest horror-yarn cliches with a straight face, keeping the action good-natured and even humorous until the gory climax.

Not just an eighties horror classic, but a horror masterpiece...
October 7, 2013
Neatly parodying Hitchcock and John Hughes movies, writer/director Tom Holland litters his rattling story with as many laughs as jolts.

Fright Night dances on a tightwire between satire and terror, glittered by special effects and a with-it nonchalance.

Chris Sarandon is terrific as the vampire, quite affable and debonair until his fingernails start to grow and his eyes get that glow.

Tom Holland's directorial debut is a wildly entertaining concoction that perfectly blends horror and comedy. Roddy McDowall steals the show as TV horror host Peter Vincent.

It shouldn't even begin to work, and yet, strangely, it does, sort of, thanks to the assured handling of writer/director Holland.
