Coming up in April, Horror Channel premieres two playfully affecting horror comedies that both pack a mighty punch.
After reviewing the 2011 remake of Fright Night, it never felt right that we hadn’t published our feelings about the 1985 original.
Daylight Fades is a dramatic tale of romance and relationships with a bite. Elizabeth and Johnny are a couple torn apart when Johnny has a horrible accident but just as everything seems doomed to end a mysterious stranger steps in giving him the gift of life but a curse which could tear them apart as that stranger is a vampire and now so is Johnny.
Now that Fright Night is reaping it in at the cinema I had the chance to sink my own teeth (I’m ashamed for using that pun) into some time with a couple of the cast members.
The original Fright Night was released in 1985 and told the tale of a teenage boy (Charley) who has the misfortune to witness one of his neighbours getting up to vampire stuff (you know, biting necks and killing people).
