News and Reviews
Oh, boy...this is just rich. Last month we broke the news that Eduardo Rodriguez was going to be at the helm of a direct-to-DVD sequel to the Fright Night remake. Shooting begins in Romania this month and, today, Bloody-Disgusting learned that Jaime Murray (Dexter season 2) was going to star.
But this is where things get funny/sad. The plot synopsis the site received mirrors the events of the '85 film/remake except, this time, it's on foreign soil. Even a character who died in the original/remake returns...seemingly alive and well.
It makes my head hurt. Head inside for the plot synopsis.
When the original Fright Night hit in 1985, fans of the Tom Holland film would not see a sequel until three years later in '88 when Fright Night Part II opened, reuniting its main cast members Roddy McDowall and William Ragsdale.
Now, it appears the 2011 Fright Night remake is spawning a sequel of its own, Fright Night 2, however, don't expect Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin to make a return. ShockTillYouDrop.com pursued rumors that hit over the weekend that a follow-up was in the works and learned that Eduardo Rodriguez (Curandero, Fear Itself, Stash House) is in line to direct.
The direct-to-DVD sequel will be a stand-alone story and begin shooting in Romania soon.
