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.

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

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

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