Finally! After years of high demand, Tom Holland’s directorial debut Fright Night, the iconic 1980s vampire classic starring Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale and Roddy McDowall, is getting a proper, non-limited edition US Blu-ray release!
The film has been released in the past by Twilight Time, a limited edition release that usually fetches over $100 on eBay, as well as by UK based company Eureka Entertainment, but that release was only suited for those with a region free player.
According to an Amazon listing, Sony Pictures will be releasing the Blu-ray on February 12th.
In Fright Night...
"Meet Jerry Dandrige.He's sweet, sexy, and he likes to sleep in late. You might think he's the perfect neighbor. But before inviting Jerry in for a nightcap, there's just one thing you should know. Jerry prefers his drinks warm, red and straight from the jugular! It's Fright Night, a horrific howl starring Chris Sarandon as the seductive vampire and William Ragsdale as the frantic teenager struggling to keep Jerry s deadly fangs out of his neck.
Only 17-year-old Charley Brewster (Ragsdale) knows Jerry's bloodcurdling secret. When Charley can't get anybody to believe him, he turns to TV horror host Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), who used to be the great Vampire Killer of the movies. Can these mortals save Charley and his sweetheart Amy (Amanda Bearse) from the wrathful bloodsucker's toothy embrace? If you love being scared, Fright Night will give you the nightmare of your life."
