Did You Know?
- Tom Holland had total control in the casting decisions. The only suggestion he got was from Guy McElwaine who asked Holland to meet his friend Roddy McDowall, who'd be cast. In an interview Holland said that "it was a terrific suggestion".
- When Peter Vincent knocks on Jerry's door, Billy Cole answers it. While Peter's arm is still raised to continue knocking, Billy offers his hand to Peter. Peter lowers his hand, yet in the next shot it is back up in the knocking position.
- [Evil Ed asks Charley if Amy found out what he's really like]
- Evil Ed: So, did she find out what you're really like?
- Charley Brewster: Get lost, EVIL!
- Evil Ed: Oh, call me anything you want. Only you're the one failing trig, not me.
Atom User Reviews
Fright Night is not a distinguished movie, but it has a lot of fun being undistinguished.
Fright Night is pleasantly, if effortlessly, well-acted and gently scripted. And when the ghoulish special effects and wry comedy aren't on screen, there's the occasional in-joke for viewer distraction. [06 Aug 1985, p.4C]
