Well, I do, frankly, and considering I'm at this very moment attending a horror movie convention with nearly the entire cast - this must be the choice for tonight:
One of my very favorite horror movies from the 80's - a smart, funny, and scary movie about young horror movie fan Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale) discovering his handsome and charming next door neighbor Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon) is really a vampire!
Charley can't get his girlfriend Amy (Amanda Bearse) or the school weirdo "Evil" Ed Thompson (Stephen Geoffreys) to believe him, so he manages to enlist vampire movie actor turned TV horror host Peter Vincent (the late great Roddy McDowall) to help him destroy the bloodsucker. But that's not going to be easy - Jerry's smart, and he has help - the sinister Billy Cole (Jonathan Stark) - who can get around in the daylight.
I have been a huge fan of this movie since seeing it in the theater - and it holds a place of honor in the video vault. We could be checking it out any night but tonight - because I'm at the show - but any other night you're not afraid to venture out after dark - come watch it with me!
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Wooden Stake, Cause I Am Outta Here!
