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 HEREto vote and you can see the choices below as well.
*I think we could all use a drink after looking at those choices*
***UPDATE*** Here’s the trailer for the movie below. It has some lesbian vampire action, so at least there’s that.
Aha! Further proof that my initial findings insinuating that those involved in the upcoming possession flick, The Last Exorcism Part II, know that the movie is going to suck. As I previously reported with my crack journalism, TV spots that are running right now for the unnecessary sequel, clearly say “The Last Exorcism” in the voiceover at the end of the spot, even though the film is clearly called, The Last Exorcism Part II. And as I mentioned in that previous post, it simply has to be a subliminal mind game to get you to think that you’re going to see a better movie than you’re actually going to see! Meaning that the original was actually pretty good and also meaning that this new one is going to blow.
*extreme measures taken to stop her embarrassing bedwetting problem*
Well now the ante of a possible conspiracy has just been upped a few notches and we now learn that the popular movie review site, Rotten Tomatoes, may be in on it! Knowing that The Last Exorcism Part II is coming out on March 1st, I decided to venture over to RT and see if any reviews were popping up. To my astonishment and equal bewilderment, the site said that it already had one “Fresh” review! And we can thank Steve Newton from the prestigious Straight.Com for that:
Date of the supposed review: February 15, 2013. But click on the link and the date now says: August 25, 2010. How can that be you ask? Because it’s a review for the original Last Exorcism movie! Scandal! Outrage! Overreacting on my part! So those involved with The Last Exorcism Part II are so desperate for good buzz, that they have to put positive reviews from the first movie up on the new movie’s Rotten Tomatoes page, tricking readers into thinking it will be good. First, the trickery of the TV spot voiceover and now this? For shame! We’ll see on March 1st how many moviegoers will be duped into supporting this sequel. That’s on March 1st when The Last Exorcism Part II will be in theaters everywhere. March 1st people. Go see The Last Exorcism Part II on March 1st. Oh no…..why am I promoting this movie? These evil sonsofbitches have gotten to me too! My God….no one is safe.
