Check Out the Trailer for Fright Night 2

Jason McDonald

Everything about the sequel to “Fright Night” is just plain weird.  Though I enjoyed the recent remake (blasphemy, I know) it’s no surprise that it didn’t get a theatrical sequel.  During it’s theatrical run in 2011 it only made $18 million on a budget of $30 million.

It didn’t seem like the sort of movie that would generate enough interest for a follow-up film, even one that was  direct-to-DVD which is what “Fright Night 2” will be. Then the studio behind the film decided to release the trailer by handing it out to people during San Diego Comic Con and letting them upload it to the web.

And to top it all off, this upcoming sequel to a remake seems more like a remake of a remake based on the description.  It’s craziness! But there’s one thing that this film has going for it and it’s how amazing Jamie Murray looks in it.  Check it out below.

When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror obsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex-girlfriend AMY in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show “Fright Night,” to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, who’s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.

        The Trailer didn’t look too bad, but why evil ed, why is her name gerri (Jerry) dandrige isn’t that the vampires name in the first one ? so this is just another remake of the first just a female vampire and I bet she is not even related to colin ferrel’s character from the first one….Cheap Cop-out! WB sounds like something FOX would do! Shame On You!

        Trailer looks kinda cool, so okay. And I even enjoyed the remake with Yelchin, Poots and Colin Farrell. But why replicate an exact do-over of the original plot with characters that were supposedly killed off in the previous one and then still name it Fright Night 2? Isn’t this suppose to be a sequel after all, or what??? Sheesh. Guess that’s how direct-to-video sequels work nowadays. They really should’ve re-introduced a brand new cast of characters instead, and also could have tied in the relationship of the female vampire (Murray) in this one to Farrell’s vampire character from the previous Fright Night. That sure would have made much more sense from a fan’s point of view. I suppose if a movie studio can completely reboot Spiderman after only just a couple years, then anything’s fair game.

        I really enjoyed Anton Yelchin in the first remake and in Odd Thomas. So glad he didn’t sign on for this crap.

          I agree Anton Yelchin was great. I am not sold on this one at all although it doesnt look horrible.
