Fright Night 2: New Blood may sound like a sequel to the 2011 remake of Fright Night, but don't be fooled. It is actually a remake of the original 1985 horror-comedy Fright Night. The movie was directed by Eduardo Rodriguez with a script written by Matt Venne. It was produced by Gaeta/Rosenzweig Films and released direct-to-video on October 1st, 2013. Although this film adheres to many of the tropes of the original movie, there are also noticeable changes, not the least of which includes gender-flipping the central antagonist from the previously male Jerry Dandridge, once played by Chris Sarandon, to the now female Gerri Dandridge, played by actress Jaime Murray. The role of the film's protagonist, Charley Brewster is played by Will Payne, with Sacha Parkinson taking on the female leading role of Amy Peterson, Chris Waller as the goofy "Evil" Ed, and Sean Power as Peter Vincent.

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • This movie is rated-R. It contains excessive profanity, female nudity (topless and full-frontal), and copious amounts of blood and some explicit gore.
  • No previous members of the original film cast or the 2011 remake cast appear in this film.
  • This is Chris Waller's second film role and his second horror movie. He also played a character named Dwight in the 2011 horror-comedy Inbred.
  • In the original Fright Night Evil Ed's full name was Ed Thompson. Here it is Ed Bates.
  • This film establishes that not only is Gerri Dandrige actually Countess Elizabeth Bathory, she is also Countess Dracula, implying that the historical Dracula was actually a woman, and not Vlad the Impaler as popular tradition would have it.
