Eureka Entertainment is bringing Tom Holland’s 1980s vampire classic Fright Night to Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK.
The iconic film, which stars Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale and Roddy McDowall, will be available in a Limited Edition Dual-Format SteelBook on 26 December 2016, and a Special Dual-Format Edition on 10 April 2017.
He’s sweet, sexy, and he likes to get in late. You might think he’s the perfect neighbour. But before inviting Jerry (Sarandon) in for a nightcap, there’s something you should know. Jerry prefers his drinks warm, red, and straight from the jugular!
Only 17-year-old Charley Brewster (Ragsdale) knows Jerry’s bloodcurdling secret. When Charley can’t get anybody to believe him, he turns to TV horror host Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), who used to be the “Great Vampire Killer” of the movies.
Can these mortals save Charley and his sweetheart Amy (Amanda Bearse) from the wrathful bloodsucker’s toothy embrace? If you love being scared, Fright Night will give you the nightmare of your life…
The film spawned a decent sequel which reunited Ragsdale and McDowall, as well as a disappointing 2011 remake, but this release will allow fans to re-enjoy the peerless original in HD.
