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 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 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.

This time around the action is set in Romania and the vampire is a chick. Aside from that, it's more or less the same story as before.
So let's talk comparisons. How does this one stack up against its predecessors?
Here's the cons: it's a straight to DVD flick so it feels somewhat cheaper than the last film. That's not a big deal though. What is a serious problem is the sloppy writing. Now, I know that the writing had never been the series' strong point, but in this version the bar noticeably drops a couple of notches. This applies to the plotting, which is painfully contrived at times, but more importantly also effects the characters. Put simply: this is the first time in the series that I genuinely didn't care about -indeed, even disliked!- our heroes. Ed is the worst casualty, in this regard. In this version Ed is reduced to a horny douche along the same lines as the guys from the Hostel films. In the previous Fright Night flicks, Ed was so pathetic that I found myself feeling sorry for him. His attention-grabbing pranks were obviously just a mask to hide his insecurities. Not here though. In this one, Ed's changed from being a sad loser to being a generic, obnoxious jerk. Not only does he fail to make any connection with the audience, he doesn't even seem to have much of a friendship with Charley either!
Now on to the pros: Jaime Murray (who you might remember from the second season of Dexter) steals the show as the villain. She's never given much material to work with, but she sure knows how to grab the viewer's attention. Likewise, one gets the impression that Sean Power's macho rendition of Peter Vincent could have been a lot of fun, if he'd been given more screen time.Read more ›
Fright Night 2 was the sequel to the original Fright Night and featured the original Charlie Brewster and Peter Vincent and a female vampire who was the sister of Jerry Dandridge.
This Fright Night 2 is just an unnecessary remake of the remake of Fright Night set in Romania. It could have been a different film with different characters to much better effect. The only change is to make Jerry into Gerri. Why have yet another failed TV vampire hunter? How about a Romanian priest? I'm sure you get the picture and it let down the whole film despite the hard work of everyone involved.
Fright Night 2 arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC @ 32 Mbps 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The film appears to be filmed digitally and exhibits a stylistically dark ambiance. To see the details requires a completely dark room and your TV with good native contrasts. This dimly lit movie exhibits a rather subdued colour palette. Resolution is revealing during close-ups. This is a generally satisfying horror experience with engaging stylished visuals. (4.5/5)
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio soundtrack is terrific: the thudding LFE effects accompanying jump cuts, the whooshing sounds of fast moving vampires, the slow trickle of blood out of a body. Fidelity is excellent. The atmospherics and sound effects are highly directionalized and panned throughout the soundfield. The music score is densely orchestrated with a wide and deep soundstage that extends into the surrounds. Dialogue manages to stay intelligible above the intensified sonics. This is a very loud soundtrack. Therefore it is wise to turn down the volume at the beginning and then fine tune to your acceptable volume. (5/5)
Fright Night 2 is supposed to be the sequel to 2011’s surprisingly enjoyable remake. Director Eduardo Rodriguez injects some level of entertainment with plenty of stylised visual flare that pulsates with energy. The screen is steeped with a sensual charismatic romance of the Romanian locations and oozes in eroticism much like the blood freely-flowing from the killer's victims. Jaime Murray's hypnotic performance is outstanding. However, the script is quite weak. The Unrated version (100 minute) is only available on blu-ray, while the R-rated version (99 minute) is available on DVD. This blu-ray version comes with strong and detailed picture quality, while the loud soundtrack really rocks. This is a satisfying horror experience in my completely dark home theatre. This set is recommended.
