Okay, the trailer just hit the net for the upcoming FRIGHT NIGHT 2. Problem is, it doesn’t appear to be a sequel at all. Based on what I’m seeing it appears to be yet another remake of the classic original with no mention what so ever of the 2011 remake (which while completely unnecessary, wasn’t really that horrible).
The synopsis explains:
When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror obsessed friend â€śEvilâ€ť Ed and ex-girlfriend Amy in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show â€śFright Night,â€ť to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, whoâ€™s blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.
Interesting making Jerry with a J into Gerri with a G. Turning the lead vampire to a female lead could lend itself to some interesting developments. The trailer does a decent job of showing where they are heading with things.
This one is direct to DVD and will be hitting on Oct. 1st.
