Fright Night: Origins audiobook is read by Fright Night star Chris Sarandon

A few months ago, we let you know that Tom Holland – not the guy who plays Spider-Man, but the one who wrote and directed the 1985 vampire classic Fright Night (watch it HERE) –  had teamed up with A. Jack Ulrich to write a novel called Fright Night: Origins, which is available for purchase THIS LINK. Now the audiobook version of Fright Night: Origins is also available for purchase (get it HERE)… and the audiobook is read by Chris Sarandon, who played the vampire Jerry Dandridge in the original film!

Fright Night: Origins has the following description: You think you know the whole story, don’t you? High school isn’t going well for teenage horror fan Charley Brewster, still dealing with the loss of his father, he finds himself in his first serious relationship with the vibrant and beautiful Amy Peterson. If new love wasn’t complicated enough Charley is also failing Trigonometry. Late one night while cramming for a test Charley spies something suspicious in the yard next door, two men carrying what be a coffin. What’s going on in the old Victorian House and who are Charley’s new neighbors?

Tom Holland returns to the world of Fright Night along with A. Jack Ulrich to lay the groundwork for a brand new trilogy!

Sarandon’s involvement with the Fright Night: Origins audiobook was officially announced in this Twitter video:

Holland provided the following statement (via That Hashtag Show): “A couple years ago I sat down to write a novel of my original story Fright Night, but as I came close to finishing, I realized I had so much more to tell. There were elements I was not able to convey in the original film because of time constraints, and I was compelled to take us back to the origins of Fright Night and beyond. I’ve written something I truly hope the fans of Fright Night will love and intend to take the Fright Night universe far beyond the story the films have told. This story and the characters are deeply personal to me, and I hope the fans have as much fun reading it as I did writing it. Fright Night forever!
