Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 11

I don't think I've actually seen "Fright Night" in over 10 years, but I know I loved it when I first saw it at age fifteen. It had a good combination of laughs and scares, the dude who played the vampire (Chris Sarandon) was kinda hot, and it was obviously made by people with an appreciation for horror movie history (see Roddy McDowell's role as aging horror movie icon "Peter Vincent"). While it's on Flix today at 11am, I fear it won't be a widescreen showing, and this 2.35:1 ratio movie loses a lot when panned and scanned. If that's the case, perhaps it deserves a space in your Netflix queue?
