No Fright Night remake

01.07.2009

There are so damn many remakes getting stuffed into the pipeline, it's almost impossible to keep track of them all. For example, I'd practically forgotten an update of the memorable 80s vampire flick FRIGHT NIGHT was in the works.

But that's apparently one less to worry about (for the moment), according to STYD, who says that the remake has been staked. It seems that Screen Gems couldn't sink their fangs into a script they liked, and so the update has been stuffed in the coffin for now.

The original involved a young man who is (rightfully) convinced his new neighbor is a bloodsucker. It was followed by a less-succesful sequel and a cast that went on to stuff like "MARRIED WITH CHILDREN" and porn.

The temporary demise of a new FRIGHT NIGHT follows the halting of another attempted remake, NEAR DARK. But don't worry, I'm sure there are plenty more horror remakes on the horizon -- STYD says a redo of the 1981 flick HELL NIGHT is in the works, while my money is on a new version of VAMP.

Extra Tidbit: FRIGHT NIGHT director Tom Holland also directed CHILD'S PLAY and Steven King's THINNER and THE LANGOLIERS.

Fright Night 3 would have been welcomed-but...

Probably a good thing this remake idea got trashed. I do wish that years back there would have been a "Fright Night 3" the second film wasn't as cool as the first but not bad,seein' Roddy McDowell(RIP) was still around then...too late now though.

Shocking! Thank God though. This is definitely a movie that doesn't need remade/modernized.

Chris Sarandon ruled when he walked down the stairs and mockingly said "Welcome to Fright Night...(silence ensues he goes down another step and leans against the railing and says more somber) "For Real".. It ruled.

Please leave Fright Night Alone

Fright Night ruled and was probably one of the best 80's horror movies. Can we please leave these movies alone, I mean Im already dreading The Lost Boys remake starring the Jonas Brothers.
