When 17-year-old Charley (William Ragsdale) discovers that his handsome, charming next-door neighbor Jerry (Chris Sarandon) is actually a bloodthirsty vampire, he enlists the aid of Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), a has-been horror film actor who now hosts "Fright Night," a local TV show. Together, the duo set out to rid Charley of his coffin-dwelling neighbor—but their plans go awry when the transplanted Transylvanian realizes they're on to him. Co-starring Amanda Bearse, Stephen Geoffreys and Jonathan Stark. Written and directed by Tom Holland (Child's Play, Thinner).
