Fright Night Part II Plot Synopsis:

Charley Brewster, the impressionable teenager, reluctantly comes to terms with the freakishly improbable events that scarred his adolescence, convincing himself that the undead creatures of the night were only figments of his imagination. Three years later and after countless sessions of therapy, Charley carefully stays away from his former vampire-slaying companion, Peter Vincent, however, when a motley crew of oddballs led by the cryptic Regine come to town, suddenly, Charley's past creeps up on him to haunt him. Is history repeating itself?

Fright Night Part II (1988) Review

Fright Night Part 2 is the sequel to Fright Night with William Ragsdale and Roddy McDowell reprising their roles again to hunt vampires. In my opinion, I thought it would have improved much on the first movie, perhaps with a bigger budget but I was a little let down. This time, Charley has to fight the sister vampire (Regine Dandridge - Julie Carmen) of the vampire (Jerry Dandrige - Chris Sarandon), he killed in the first Fright Night. This time, they increased the vampires to a vampire clan with Charley and Vincent Price as the esteemed vampire hunters. Funny but not as funny as the last movie. I enjoyed Fright Night Part 2 but I just thought so much could have been done to improve the original.
