Retro DV-Debrief:

Fright Night - 1985

Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group

Have you ever found yourself wondering why Hollywood decides to remake movies from the past. You know the ones that you thought were cool when you were a teen. Well, we decided since there was a new Fright Night we would take a look at the original 1985 version. For those of you who don’t know about the Fright Night that came out in the ’80 let me tell you a bit a bout it. It was about a teenage boy who learns his next door neighbor is a vampire as soon as he starts telling people about it no one will believe him. It stars Chris Sarandon (as the vampire), William Ragsdale (as the boy next door), Amanda Bearse (as the girlfriend to the boy next door) and Roddy McDowall (as the vampire killer). Listen in as Shady the biker, Mike and I discuss if this movie stood the test of time. You may be surprised about what you hear.

Feature Flicks:

Movie Fright Night

DreamWorks Studios

Like I mentioned before Fright Night, the new version, is in theaters now. This time it’s about a teenage boy who suspects his new neighbor is a vampire. The plot is not that much different from the first movie. The difference in these two movies is the writing and the performances. In the new modern Fright Night you will find Anton Yelchin (as the boy next door), Colin Farrell (as Jerry the vampire), Toni Collette (as the mother to the boy) and David Tennant (as Peter Vincent the Vampire Slayer). Be sure to listen in to find out what we think of this remake. We would also love to hear what your thoughts, of this newer version. Let us know by leaving a comment below.

Conan the Barbarian

Lionsgate Studio

The other Feature Flick that was discussed on the show was Conan the Barbarian, not the 1982 version but the one that just came out. Square Ross takes this review on solo style. That’s right we sent Square out to the theater all by himself (not really his wife Jess when with him) to view this movie and then report back. According to IMDB this movie is a “… tale of Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village.” It stars, Jason Mamoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan and Ron Perlman. Enjoy the review…

Thanks again for stopping by. It was great having you here and be sure to catch The Show live. Until next time…
