Silly, idiotic, curious me, always has a need to watch movies i’m told not to watch.. because sometimes those who tell me not to watch them are wrong..
but not this time..
this had popped up on Netflix as a recent add and i thought, let’s see what kind of story for a second movie of the Fright Night remake has in mind..
so i’m pretty sure this was a direct to video kind of movie and it’s not a sequel to the remake.. in fact, it’s a reboot of the remake.. it’s the same characters, different cast, and a brand new story of them meeting up with vampires, like they have not gone thru any vampire related at all.. WTF?? why the hell is is called Part 2 then?? i’m not sure.. and Jerry Dandridge is Gerri Dandridge and a woman, who is an art history professor at a university in Romania, that Charlie, “Evil” Ed and Amy go to.. in one of their classes it was discussed that Bram Stoker got Dracula wrong because Dracula was actually a.. woman.. ???? and so the hilarity ensues..
Peter Vincent is a paranormal reality star, who stages all his effects and meetings with “supernatural” creatures for FRIGHT NIGHT and he’s a complete coward.. even tho at the very end of the movie he does save the day..
Gerri Dandridge is Elizabeth Bathory, who was placed under a curse that she will be a night stalking vampire until she drinks the blood of a virgin who was born at midnight under a blood moon, then she will be able to walk in the daylight and still be a vampire.. she has a pool of blood that she keeps draining female victims’ blood into and she submerges herself in it for a while and she comes out young and beautiful because in her true form, she is an old ugly hag..
of course, Amy is the destined virgin..
ok.. ok.. given the modern times, the FX are very good, with lots of bloody gore all over the place.. thumbs up for that..
Gerri is a bit too cheery as a vampire.. she’s always smiling and always says such lines that refer to sexual innuendo or cryptic vampire.. and she has a sonar ability that helps her find her prey in tunnels..
i really am kicking myself for wasting my time watching this movie.. but it was really filmed in Bucharest Romania, so that’s another thumbs up for that..
i implore you.. DON’T WATCH THIS MOVIE!
