Oh, You're So Cool Brewster
Fright Night (1985)
Dir - Tom Holland
When I got home from seeing the remake I had to watch the original again because it had been too long. Still absolutely love this movie and it bitch slaps the remake in possibly every way. But it would be hard to beat this movie that I've loved for about 26 years (I believe I saw this in the theater originally, if not as soon as it was in the video store).
Anyway, the Peter Vincent character in this film is so much better. Hell, all of the characters are better here and more developed than their remake counterparts. Evil's turning sequence is like nothing in the 2011 version but here it's touching. Even the poster - look at that awesome poster above.
