55: Fright Night (w/ Padraig Reynolds)

May 30, 2019

Oh dear. Another potentially divisive episode! It's Episode 55, in which Andy and Mitch are joined by the director of Rites of Spring, The Devil's Dolls, Open 24 Hours and the upcoming Dark Light... It's Padraig Reynolds


His chosen film? The 2011 remake of Fright Night!

Yes! We are back in remake territory! Just when you'd got over the unpleasantness of Carrie, we are back with this, Craig Gillespie's remake of the beloved 1980's vampire flick. Is it any good? Is Colin Farrell in a vest better than Chris Sarandon in a sweater? Let's find out!

The Synopsis is as follows:

Charley is a high-school senior who's in with the "in" crowd and dating Amy, the most sought-after gal on campus. But trouble enters his world in the form of Jerry Dandridge, a charismatic new neighbor. After witnessing some unusual activity next door, Charley concludes that Jerry is a vampire. Of course, no one believes him. After seeking advice from illusionist Peter Vincent, Charley sets out to destroy Jerry himself.

Please note that this episode contains strong language, conversations of an adult nature and EXTREMELY Scottish accents.
