Ah, Fright Night. I've seen that movie more times than I can even count. I was just happy to have a DVD with widescreen aspect ratio -- I don't think there are enough of us to justify a Special Ed.
Yes, Fright Night II original ratio was standard 1:33. The DVD quality is sub-par at best, but it beats my old VHS copy.... barely.
I swear there was a time I watched that movie (the original) at least once a week. No, that wasn't a typo -- at least once a week. My girlfriend at the time put up with it. I even own all of the comics. Man, do those suck.
i used to watch fright night all the time...about once a week also. you're so cool brewster!
I cant rewacth movied like I used to when I was a kid.
I never saw part 2.. how was it?
I disagree with this statement.....If Columbia can make an SE of 'Candyman' (another good horror film), I'm sure that they can easily gather the materials for Fright Night.
That's the aspect ratio on disc, but it's not the original aspect ratio. The disc is panned and scanned.
I'd kill for a SE of Fright Night, one of my favorite horror films ever! And Fright Night 2's AR is 2.35:1 so the current DVD is worthless.
Are you guys sure? I swear that I read 2 was 1:33 and was matted for the theater. I'll have to watch the DVD again for panning.
Lots of films are shot in 1.33, but are intended for presentation in other AR's.
Unless it was supposed to be originally Made-for-TV, it should be in widescreen. No one was shooting theatrical features in the 1980's with the intention of projecting them in Academy ratio.
I'll gladly purchase FN2 when it comes out in anamorphic widescreen. But I'll pass until then.
The back of the FRIGHT NIGHT II DVD box is wrong.
The film was shot in Panavison 2:35 to 1 widescreen, and the DVD is hideously panned and scanned.
Since Roddy McDowall is gone, I don't know that a special edition of the original would be all that worthwhile. What would we get...an audio commentary with Stephen Geoffreys talking about his gay porn flicks?
I'd buy that!
I think you could get the 3 kids together, chris sarandon, maybe the guy who played the live in housekeeper. And have a feature on the effects of the movie. Trailers, any possible deleted scenes, and a documentary with interviews.
I'd definitely buy that.
The sequel at least needs a widescreen transfer. The only DVD I own that is honestly VHS quality...
You wouldn't want anything bad to happen to them... would you, Charlie?
Yes, Charlie. I think you've caused your friends enough
Ah, I love the first one. The second one was mediocre at best. My favorite guy was the vampire who didn't know how to do anything right. Got a kick out of the bowling alley too. (You're supposed to bite her on the neck, asshole.)
Speaking of Fright Night, why is the soundtrack always so damn expensive on eBay?
"Charlie... I'm ready..."
" Ooh your'e so cool brewster".
Yeah, I'd love just to be able to get the 5.1 mix released in the US.
I don't know why the soundtrack is so expensive either. It wasn't in print very long, I know that, so it's pretty rare. I'm figuring some artist's fans are grabbing them up, I'm just not sure whose. Brad Fidel? Devo? J Geils? Sparks?
I was tempted to buy it on CD when it first came out but passed. Have it on vinyl tho.
I hate to break it to dvdcompare.net but, the R1 is anamorphic. Even though they'd really like to think that their edition is so superior.
