Fright Night 2 (2013) Review:
While I’m really enjoying foreign (as in not Romanian) movies set on Romanian ground, especially when they deal with our most famous monster, the vampire (thank you so much, Stoker), this one bored me to tears. At first, it did seem quite interesting, considering the low budget, and they did do some research before throwing themselves into a Countess Bathory story, but after initial vibe, it becomes clear that in the end, it will reach the grand status of fail… It fails on so many levels that I have trouble keeping up with them.
This not a continuation of the original Fright Night, not even of the remake Fright Night from 2011. No, this one is a remake of the remake. The setting is changed, the vampire is not played by Colin Farrell, but by rather a beautiful actress, who tries to play Countess Bathory as an enchanting and charismatic character and fails miserably, and there are a few bits and pieces a bit different.
The main character is still that insecure kid who is in love with a girl who will not really notice him until the vampire appears. His best friend is the same horror fan as in the first remake. This best friend also turns into the Countess’s minion. Just like in the remake. And you know the scene from Fright Night (2011) where Colin Farrell stops the car in the street? That scene exists in this one also. And the goofy magician coming to the rescue? He exists in this one too, under the disguise of some kind of Paranormal Activity show presenter.
It has a few points into its advantage. Some actors talked in actual Romanian, not gibberish like in Underworld (and many other movies), where they named the language Transylvanian (which does not exist). And like I said above, they did some research on the Countess, which I thought was nice since no one does research these days when making a directly on video, low budget horror flick.
