Guess what guys?! Have you been dreaming about being instrumental in picking out the cover for the upcoming direct-to-DVD sequel to the unnecessary Fright Night remake from 2011? If you answered yes, then you live a sad life. But even still, I have good news for you because you can indeed help pick out the cover for the upcoming sequel, Fright Night 2: New Blood! Ooooh – they even threw in ‘New Blood’ to the title. How clever. Let me put my sarcasm back in my pocket for a minute and give you the synopsis for the movie:
When high school student Charlie attends a study abroad program with his horror-obsessed friend “Evil” Ed and ex-girlfriend Amy in Romania, he soon discovers their young attractive professor Gerri (Jaime Murray) is a real life vampire. Too bad no one believes him. In fact, Evil Ed finds it amusing, and it only feeds his vampire obsession. When Gerri turns Ed, Charlie seeks out Peter Vincent, the infamous vampire hunter (well, he plays one on TV) who is in Romania filming his show “Fright Night,” to teach him how to take down Gerri before she gets to Amy, whose blood will cure Gerri of spending eternity as a vampire.
Well – that sounds…..exactly like the original 1985 movie and looks like it disregards everything that happened in the 2011 remake too. So, Evil Ed is alive and instead of a head vampire named Jerry, we have a woman head vampire named Gerri. Oh I see what they did there with the name. Well played! Looks like my sarcasm came back out of my pocket. Anyway, all new actors will be playing the main roles, which can mean nothing but good things. If you are inclined to vote for your favorite mediocre DVD cover art to Fright Night 2 :New Blood, head on over HERE to vote and you can see the choices below as well.
***UPDATE*** Here’s the trailer for the movie below. It has some lesbian vampire action, so at least there’s that.
