Fright Night 2: New Blood - Unrated

Excerpt: Before we can even delve into any criticism of “Fright Night 2: New Blood” (2013), it must first be defined in regard to where it stands in this series. In 2011, the original “Fright Night” (1985) was rebooted with a cast of mostly-familiar famous faces inhabiting the classic roles.
Conclusion: I was strangely intrigued by what Fright Night 2: New Blood was going to bring to the table, so I am a bit more disappointed than I thought I could have been after actually seeing the film.
Excerpt: A purported sequel to the 2011 remake of Fright Night ( 3D Blu-ray review ), this movie is a loose retelling set in an entirely new locale, Romania. Fright Night 2: New Blood is not a true sequel, but a reimagining of the franchise using a new cast.
Excerpt: Ahhh, vampires. Seemingly everywhere you turn, you can’t escape them and – here’s the kicker – they’re not even real! As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews for vampire movies, they’ve been around for ages and it would appear that right now it’s the most opportune time to cash in.
Conclusion: Supposedly meant as a follow-up to 2011's surprisingly enjoyable remake, 'Fright Night 2: New Blood' is a head-scratching mess that combines the two original vampire movies from the late 80s while also feeling a lot like a remake of Gillespie's movie with Colin Farrell.
Conclusion: The filmmakers seem to think that offering a female vampire is some sort of new idea, which begs the question of whether they've heard of any number of films from Dracula's Daughter to The Vampire Lovers .
Summary: Fright Night 2 er noget mere gyser-agtig end sin forgænger, men det gør egentlig ikke noget. Det er en god fortælling, der fungerer godt med det ungdomsmiljø, der udspiller sig i. Jeg var fint underholdt, men man skal være forberedt på, at det er en blodig fornøjelse.
