Its tone is never exactly comedic and its horrific touches are more disgusting than scary.

Basically this movie was made, a lot better, by Roman Polanski back in 1967 as The Fearless Vampire Killers.

Fright Night is not a distinguished movie, but it has a lot of fun being undistinguished.

A darn solid little vampire flick. Mixes horror, comedy and affection for the genre into one tasty dish. And Roddy's just great in this one.

Makes up for a dearth of scares with cheeky self-referentiality.

A run-of-the mill vampire film buoyed by Sarandon's tragic villain and McDowall's wonderful would-be Van Helsing

Not just an eighties horror classic, but a horror masterpiece...

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.
