Craig Gillespie‘s Fright Night underwhelmed at the box office, but it did well enough that someone decided to greenlight a follow-up. Just, y’know, not one that actually makes it into theaters.
Though the title suggests it’s a sequel, the direct-to-DVD feature Fright Night 2: New Blood comes across more like a remake of the 2011 Fright Night — which, of course, was itself a remake of the the 1985 film by Tom Holland. To make things more confusing, it seems to have no connection with the other Fright Night sequel from 1988.
The big difference in New Blood is that Jerry, the seductive bloodsucker played by Colin Farrell in the last incarnation, is now Gerri, an even more seductive lady bloodsucker played by Jaime Murray. Watch her make out with lingerie-clad victims and lick blood off of a sword after the jump.
