Download Two FRIGHT NIGHT Commentaries! For Real!
As promised in my Stephen Geoffreys interview, IconsofFright has posted two (2) "guerrilla" commentaries for your listening delectation.
Click here to download both of 'em!
Originally, Tim Sullivan, the man largely responsible for the recent flurry of FRIGHT NIGHT-related material around these parts, was gunning for one cast-and-crew reunion commentary, but Chris Sarandon had to bow out at the last second due to unforeseeable circumstances. Fortunately, Sullivan was able to get Sarandon to record a "vampires only" commentary with Jonathan "Billy Cole" Stark and writer-director Tom Holland before he left town. These commentaries would've been woefully incomplete without Jerry Dandrige.
The second commentary features writer-director Holland, William Ragsdale, Stephen Geoffreys and f/x maestro Randall William Cook (three-time Oscar winner for LORD OF THE RINGS). It's "hosted" by Sullivan and kinda-sorta moderated by, um, me. I really do hope you enjoy it. And I apologize in advance for slipping up right out the gate by crediting Holland with the wrong PSYCHO sequel. Obviously, I know the difference; he did the one without Jeff Fahey.
And keep your fingers crossed for a FRIGHT NIGHT DVD announcement sometime in the near future. You never know what might be in the works!

The DVD currently on the market sucks, so thanks for giving us a little extra. Love this movie!

Such a great movie.

Geez, how can one of the greatest vampire films get neglected for so long??? I ask this.
Sept. 26, 2008, 3:15 p.m. CST
The scene where Amy looked up at the camera with that cool makeup job that made her mouth look impossibly wide made the theater audience scream and jump. Prosthetics, baby!
Sept. 26, 2008, 3:32 p.m. CST
that just creeps me out.

The Sci Fi Channel recently aired a rip off of Fright Night with Kevin Sorbo playing the Roddy McDowell part. They used werewolves instead of vampires, but copied the Fright Night almost scene for scene. I would be interested to see them follow up on that as it was such a clear copy, as well as a rotten attempt at filmmaking.

I've refused to buy a copy of Fright Night until it gets a special edition. Love that movie, though.

I know this was posted in previous talkbacks, but if you haven't seen it, here's a recent video interview with Stephen Geoffreys talking about why he passed on Fright Night II... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrfP72xufgg Remove the spaces or go to youtube and look up: Stephen Geoffreys Fright Night Interview

This is a geeky classic.

Another forgotten vampire movie from the 80's.<br> That movie was trippy as fuck - Grace Jones as a vampire stripper.<br> Tarantino shamlessly ripped of the concept years later for From Duck Till Dawn.
Sept. 27, 2008, 2:23 a.m. CST
You know, the long lost, Tarantino sequel to Howard The Duck.<br> Or should that have been From Dusk Till Dawn?<br> I blame the weed myself. Sorry

I would love to blame the weed for something, but my area has been excrutiatingly dry for the last two weeks.

It's been years since I've seen Fright Night, and although I love Roddy to death, I don't remember being very impressed with this flick. Is it really worth a second look?
Sept. 28, 2008, 5:22 p.m. CST
Special edition would be fantastic. I can only take so many "Evil Dead" special releases...

Why doesn't AICN do this kind of thing once in a while? I mean, just as a goof...Harry, Beaks, Moriarty, Quint, Massa, Vern, whoever...get two or more of the regular idiots together, watch a classic that currently has no commentary track on DVD (or all the principals are dead) and do an informal MP3 commentary to be downloaded online at the site? I know it's a bit of work, but if you're going to be watching the movies anyway...or perhaps, at least, the Butt-Numb-A-Thon reaction track to any particular movie? I dunno, doesn't have to be a commentary a day or anything like Quint does, but maybe once or twice a year? Just throwing that out there.

... that doesn't sound dumb. Not at all. That's actually a really cool idea.
