Given its status as a bonafide horror classic, it’s quite surprising that 1985’s beloved vampire flick Fright Night wasn’t released onto Blu-ray many years ago. Just in time for its 30th anniversary, that wrong has been righted, as the Blu-ray is on its way.
Courtesy of Twilight Time, this 30th anniversary Fright Night Blu-ray is limited to just 5,000 copies worldwide, as most of the company’s exclusive horror offerings are. The film joins previous Twilight Time Blu-rays such as Night of the Living Dead (1990) and The Blob (1988).
The limited edition Blu-ray went up for grabs tonight, and I can guarantee you that it won’t long last very long. The aforementioned previous releases from the company sold out within a matter of hours and have gone on to sell for ridiculously high prices on eBay, so you’ll want to jump on this one ASAP.
To grab your copy, head over to Screen Archives Entertainment. The discs are limited to 3 per customer, and are selling for $29.95 each. This is a pre-order only, and orders will begin shipping out on January 20th.
Fright Night (1985), writer/director Tom Holland’s homage to classic horror films, stars Chris Sarandon as the suave vampire next door and Roddy McDowall as the washed-up actor turned vampire killer who attempts to thwart the ambassador of evil’s designs on a peaceful suburban enclave. This cult favorite features superb visual effects from a team headed by Richard Edlund (Ghostbusters) and Randall Cook (The Lord of the Rings), and is presented here with an isolated score track by composer Brad Fiedel.
