| You're So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night: 50% isn't bad right?
I really enjoyed Fright Night (1985) I consider it a true cult classic that has aged extremely well, it's sequel however I found went the other way entirely and I try to forget about its existence.

This extremely difficult to get hold of documentary covers both movies and stands at around 3hr 40 minutes which is pretty hefty. I'd say each movie get's about 50% of the time and that's where the problem lies.

I really enjoyed the first half, the interviews were brilliant and the story of the movies creation was arguably the best I've ever seen. Play by play, scene by scene it told the story of Fright Night almost as well as the movie itself and was a joy to behold.

Then the second half kicked in, and it all fell apart. I'm bias I know, because of my dislike for the second film but almost 2hrs of interviews and stories about a film that poor was painful.

If you enjoyed Fright Night I'd heartily recommend this to you as it really is excellent, but if you are of the same mind as me that the sequel was a pathetic cash grab then turn it off about half way.

The Good:

Highly indepth

Great interviews

Brilliant behind the scenes stories

The Bad:

Second half was pretty lame

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Charlie Sheen was nearly Charlie!

William Ragsdale had a broken foot for most of the film

Some props from Fright Night had been used in Ghostbusters (1984)
