In Romania, Charley and his friends discover that their alluring art professor is a real-life vampire, hell-bent on completing an ancient ritual with Amy's blood. Are they all doomed to spend eternity as ravenous creatures of the night?
When a nice new neighbor moves in next door, Charley discovers that he is an ancient vampire who preys on the community. Can he save his neighborhood from the creature with the help of the famous "vampire killer", Peter Vincent?
Reluctantly, three troubled years after the blood-soaked events in Fright Night (1985), the now twenty-year-old survivor, Charley Brewster, comes to terms with the freakishly improbable incident that scarred his adolescence. Still struggling to convince himself after countless sessions of therapy that the undead creatures of the night were only figments of his imagination, Charley carefully stays away from his former vampire-slaying companion, Peter Vincent. However, when the cryptic and mysteriously alluring actress, Regine Dandrige, and her motley crew of oddballs arrive in town, suddenly, Charley's past creeps up on him to haunt him. Is history repeating itself?Written by
Soon after the filming was wrapped up, Roddy McDowall and Fright Night creator Tom Holland were scheduled to meet with Live Entertainment chairman Jose Menendez to discuss making a third film, but plans died with Menendez, who was infamously murdered by his sons. As a direct consequence of this horrific tragedy, Part 2 ended up losing it's planned country-wide distribution and playing only in one LA and another NY theater, which directly resulted in its poor box office results (even though its per theater results were pretty good) and being released almost straight to video. Since all of the movie's planned promos and ads were canceled as well, most people never even learned of the movie's existence until eventually noticing it at their local video store. See more »
Vampires cast no reflection and therefore are invisible in mirrors. TV video cameras use mirrors. Regime's vampire performance on Fright Night should not have been viewable on TV. See more »

Such a thing simply could not happen twice, Charley!

The Swedish version is cut with about 4 minutes. Scenes excluded are the maggots coming out of one of the vampires stomach, the death of the black vampire is shortened and Regines death is also cut in some places. Furthermore, Richie's death is also shortened to exclude a sequence of him being burned by holy water. See more »
I enjoyed this true sequel to the original Fright Night(1985).once again Charley Brewster(William Ragsdale)and Pter Vincent(Roddy McDowall)return to battle some new vampires.this film,unlike the original film has some humorous bits mostly courtesy of John Gries who played Louie.the musical score was once again done by Brad Fiedel,and was again very appropriate to the movie.the acting is good enough for the most part.i thought Traci Lind was good as Charlie's girlfriend.however,Julie Carmen,who plays Regine,really didn't do anything for me.I also thought the special makeup effects were inferior to the original.nevertheless,the movie is watchable and a worthy sequel.Fright Night Part 2 is a 6/10
