The 1980s were totally rad for a lot of reasons (ruled, the two Coreys, slasher dominated, being PC wasn’t a thing, people actually spoke on the phone, and many more reasons). The decade also sucked for a lot of reasons (mullets, neon everything, parachute pants, Jheri curl, Cosby sweaters… ). I know my brief lists here suck and are far from inclusive, but that’s what I can come up with on a lazy Sunday.
Tom Holland’s 1985 classic, Fright Night, obviously falls into the former category of radness, but it also sucked, if you get my meaning. Fright Night was also very cool back in the day, and it’s since gone on to achieve iconic cult status as one of the best horror films on record. The thing had everything you could ask for: comedy, great effects, an amazing cast that truly captured the time, sex, and, of course, blood! So, it’s about time that it got its own documentary, and we’re happy to bring you extended trailer (above) for You’re so Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night.
Also, check out the poster for You’re so Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night after some additional information from the press release.
