Fright Night’s story of a vampire moving into a suburban community had made it a huge hit during the ’80s, and this has just earned a few limited Blu-ray releases. Sony will now be releasing the new Blu-ray for this movie, which will be loaded with many special features, and this has been confirmed by Broke Horror Fan. Fright Night will release on Blu-ray on February 12th.
In this movie,
“Teenage Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale) is a horror-film junkie, so it’s no surprise that, when a reclusive new neighbour named Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon) moves next-door, Brewster becomes convinced he is a vampire. It’s also no surprise when nobody believes him. However, after strange events begin to occur, Charlie has no choice but to turn to the only person who could possibly help: washed-up television vampire killer Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall).”
The special features will be as follows:
-Audio commentary with writer/director Tom Holland, actors -William Ragsdale and Stephen Geoffreys, and special effects artist Randall Cook, moderated by journalist Jeremy Smith and filmmaker Tim Sullivan
-Audio commentary with writer/director Tom Holland and actors -Chris Sarandon and Jonathan Stark, moderated by filmmaker Tim Sullivan
-Tom Holland: Writing Horror featurette
-You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night – 2016 documentary
-Fright Night Reunion Panel at Fear Fest 2
-Rowdy McDowall: From Apes to Bats featurette
-Vintage EPK with behind-the-scenes footage
-Shock Till You Drop presents Choice Cuts with writer-director Tom Holland and journalist Ryan Turek
Twilight Time had originally released this movie on Blu-ray, though the smaller distributor had emphasised limited releases and, with the popularity of Fright Night, the set had sold out pretty fast. The company, Eureka Entertainment had released a Blu-ray of this movie, yet all the fans in the U.S. need a region-free player to watch the release. This 3.5-hour documentary will explore the making of this classic film and the lasting effect that the film has made on pop culture.
What makes the Blu-ray set exciting is that it will include ‘You’re So Cool, Brewster!’, a 3.5 documentary that will explore the making of this movie. Franchises like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street have earned extended documentaries as well.
