80s HORROR HIT “FRIGHT NIGHT” CAST AND CREW REUNITE FOR MIDNIGHT SCREENING
FIRST LOS ANGELES GROUP APPEARANCE SINCE 1985
September 8th, 2008- "Fright Night", the quintessential 80’s horror-comedy, will have its first Los Angeles cast and crew reunion on Friday, September 19th, Midnight at the Landmark’s Nuart Theatre, 11272 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Los Angeles.
“Fright Night” writer-director Tom Holland (“Child’s Play”) will be joined by the film’s stars Chris Sarandon (“Dog Day Afternoon”), William Ragsdale (“Living Proof”), Stephen Geoffreys (“Heaven Help Us”), and Jonathan Stark (“According to Jim”). Composer Brad Fiedel (“Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”) and Academy Award winning special effects artist Randall Cook (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy) will also reunite with the film’s cast and creator.
Released on August 2, 1985, “Fright Night” opened to strong theatrical business and has since achieved cult status, as evidenced by a recent revival screening presented by Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (“Juno”) at L.A.’s New Beverly Cinema. The upcoming Midnight Screening at the Nuart will mark the first time that the film’s writer-director, cast and crew have reunited for a Los Angeles screening. Fans can expect a brief introduction, post-show Q&A, and the rare opportunity to personally meet and have mementos signed by the creative team behind this vampire classic.
Said Holland, "I’m delighted to be able to get together with all the great folks who made this picture with me almost twenty-four years ago here in Los Angeles. And it’s great for us to be able to meet for an actual screening of the movie, with the faithful audience who’s turned it into something of a cult movie, and all at a classic Los Angeles movie house — the Nuart. I’m looking forward to having our “Fright Night” family back together, getting to see the movie again with them, and meeting our extended fan family as well. I think there will be lots of laughs and maybe even a chill or two."
Writer-director Tim Sullivan (“2001 Maniacs”) will host the event in conjunction with horror website IconsofFright.com. Seizing the historic occasion of the reunion, Sullivan will record an exclusive audio commentary track for the film with the cast and filmmakers before the screening, which will be made available as a free download via Sullivan’s “Shock N Roll” web column at www.IconsOfFright.com.
Said Sullivan, "Fright Night” is a definitive horror film from the 1980s, a true time capsule of its era that’s also a valentine to the vampire movies of the 50s and 60s, and the TV horror hosts of the 70s who kept them alive for little monsters like Tom Holland and me to discover on late night television. As a die-hard fan long disappointed with the film’s "bare bones" DVD release, I’m thrilled to help preserve the film’s history by offering fans this exclusive audio commentary. Much like the iconic bloodsuckers in the film, Tom Holland’s “Fright Night” will simply not die."
