Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
With the remake coming up soon, I figured it was time to run a nice little Fright Night picture. Fright Night and The Lost Boys together made up my first real impression of what vampires were as a kid. It wasn’t until later that I delved into the Lugosis and Lees. So, my own personal nostalgia is really high for this flick.
I love pics like the one today, with director Tom Holland and star Roddy McDowell working just off camera. I love them because you can tell what kind of actor the star of the movie is. Look at McDowell here… he’s not on camera, but he’s 100% in character. That’s Peter Vincent, not Roddy McDowell and he’s doing it for the benefit of the actor in front of the camera, which doesn’t happen as often as you’d hope in this business. So, you can take away that McDowell was a team player and a stand-up guy… which should be obvious anyway, but it’s good to have this confirmation in photo form.

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic will jump back in time a good four decades.
