The fan fave 1980s horror classic debuts in 4K ULTRA HI DEF with over 4 hours of special features.
Meet Jerry Dandridge, he’s sweet, sexy and likes to sleep in late. You might think he’s the perfect neighbor. But before inviting Jerry in for a nightcap, there’s just one thing you should know, Jerry prefers his drinks warm, red, and straight from the jugular! This horrific howler starring Chris Sarandon as the seductive vampire and William Ragsdale as the frantic teen neighbor struggling to keep Jerry’s deadly fangs out of his neck.
Charlie Brewster knows some-bloodcurdling secrets but when Charlie can‘t get anybody to believe him he turns to TV’s horror host Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall) who once was known as “The Great Vampire Killer” in the movies.
Writer/director Tom Holland has fun parodying Universal’s vampire/Dracula mythos. It’s a well-worn formula that works best for an undemanding audience,
Can these mortals save Charlie and his sweetheart (Amanda Bearse) from the wrathful bloodsuckers toothy embrace? If you love being scared, this silly but earnest movie might be for you. It starts slow but the third act is bloody and action never lets up! The “movie within-the movie” premise works here. There are extensive extras. SONY. Blu-ray.
