By day Gerri Dandridge is a sexy professor, but by night she transforms
into a real-life vampire with an unquenchable thirst for human blood. So
when a group of high school students travel abroad to study in Romania,
they find themselves ensnared in Gerri's chilling web of lust and
terror. Charley and "Evil" Ed must stop Gerri from drinking and bathing
in the blood of a "new moon virgin," which just so happens to be
Charley's ex-girlfriend, Amy. They enlist help from Peter Vincent, the
vampire hunting host of a reality show called "Fright Night," to drive a
stake through Gerri's plan and save Amy from a fate far worse than
Again another vampire movie ....
I really didn't like the remake in 2011 of the original cult film from 1985. And this sequel is also for me just a lame excuse to bring in money, feeding on the cult sounding movie title. There is absolutely nothing innovative or original in this film. It's just another story about vampires with all the familiar cliches. Just like its predecessor, the SE's are standard and nothing spectacular. Besides one thing that I have never seen in such movies : the production of sonar-like waves to locate the two students in the dark tunnels. That was an original contribution.
The functional nudity and eroticism was taken to a higher level than in the movie from 2011. Murray as the biting vampire herself is one to bite and nibble on. Enormously tasteful to watch. But her delicious nudity isn't shown explicitly. What a pity. However, I think that this strategic move is a way to cover up the lack of talent.
This movie isn't a complete disaster and ultimately the whole movie industry is only interested in one thing, and that's money. So I have no problem with the fact that there is a weak decoction made with a huge low budget, in order to hit the market with this product for the fans of such movies. Haven't you seen a Fright Night episode before, good advice, skip this one and watch the original.
My rating 3 /10
