      Nick Schager Lessons of Darkness Nothing more than a cheapo regurgitation of its predecessor. Rated: C- Apr 21, 2011 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review While it may not have all the charm or originality of Holland’s first entry, it’s a capably made sequel that contains some expected horror-sequel clichés and yet, in the end, stands as an entertaining and underrated follow-up. Rated: 3/4 Jul 18, 2022 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The film is supposed to be a gory horror thriller, but it's unintentionally funny more frequently than it should be. Rated: 4/10 Sep 6, 2020 Full Review Joe Lipsett Bloody Disgusting ...the main reason to watch this film is that there's a ton of batsh*t crazy on display. The sense of humour is much stronger in the sequel, particularly in sequences like the dormitory attack sequence Feb 22, 2020 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Without the "Rear Window" frame, "Fright Night 2," is just another forgettable buffoonish vampire movie.

      Mike P Watchable but shallow and unaffecting sequel to the 1985 Tom Holland classic...Young vampire slayer Charlie Brewster survives the events of the first movie...And he's moved on to college life..And he starts the movie steeped in denial...He's engaging in a little selective amnesia where his past vamp-battles are concerned...Because it's too hard to integrate it into the real world. (So he pretends it all didn't happen)... Meanwhile the sister of the vampire he killed in part 1; Regine Dandridge; is also stalking him...As part of a big revenge plot she's nursing to avenge her brother Jerry's death. And then Charlie slowly starts to piece it all together...But it's a little too little, and it's a little too late...So...Tommy Lee Wallace is a very capable horror director; but he doesn't have the same affinity and affection for this material that series creator Tom Holland did; and it shows. Also he's taking it all too LITERALLY...Holland understood that a lot of these tropes were metaphors for OTHER more serious issues, (kind of the way Buffy The Vampire Slayer did)...But this movie misses that. Also, while it's great to see William Ragsdale and Roddy McDowell again; this chapter is sorely missing Amanda Bearse...She couldn't come back because she was busy starring in Married With Children...But her absence is felt; and there's nothing really here to fill the void. Also the villainess here, Julie Carmen, isn't quite on the same level as Chris Sarandon in part 2...(They should have brought him back in dream sequences or something... And Carmen is really miscast here...If they wanted a scarey vampire lady, how about Uma Thurman, Sigourney Weaver, or Grace Jones?) Overall it's all not really bad, just meh. Not recommended. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/21/24 Full Review Wormhunter89YT Fright Night Part 2 is a wonderful film I'm not sure what the other watched certain wasn't the same film I watch as Fright Night and sequel are horror comedies they are not meant to be taken serious.An attractive woman is the sister of Jerry Dandrige named Regine Dandrige who seeking revenge on both Charlie and Peter Vincent played by wonderful Roddy McDowell.It's been 3 years and Charlie is convinced that event that took place didn't happen that Jerry Dandrige is not a vampire but a serial killer. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/17/23 Full Review Maddy L While this film may have suffered at the time due to a budget cut during production, it has aged in the way a solid 80s film does with decent practical effects. It is fun, and it explores a rarely-used trope in horror films: PTSD. The main character, Charley, struggles with what he experienced in the first film, convinced by everyone that it didn't actually happen. If you're looking for a fun vampire movie with a lot of humor and horror, this is really worth a watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Elvis D Esta secuela del clásico Fright Night continua la historia manteniendo el mismo ritmo y humor de la película original. Con Charly y Vincent siendo lo más destacable y buenos efectos especiales, tiene lo necesario para ser una buena secuela, pero un guion poco convincente. La hermana de Jerry como nueva antagonista no llega a ser tan entrañable como Jerry. Luce seductora, pero no tiene mucho. No está mal, pero lamentablemente es una película olvidable. A mí en lo personal mucho no me gusto y es una secuela completamente innecesaria que por suerte acabo siendo un film de culto. Mi calificación para esta película es un 7/10. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/17/23 Full Review adam r Better than it's predecessor for me. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review jeff l If you liked the first, then you should check this out. Not as good as the first, but a fun vampire flick. The makeup effects are once again, really good. Like the first movie, it's fun, campy, cool ,just to a lesser degree.
