"There are some very good reasons to be afraid of the dark."


  • Director: Tom Holland
  • Genre: Horror, Thriller, Comedy
  • Studio: Columbia Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 130 Mins

In this hugely entertaining horror spoof, teenage B-movie buff William Ragsdale becomes convinced that new neighbour Chris Sarandon is a vampire responsible for a spate of brutal killings. Only when best pal Stephen Geoffreys has become Sarandon's slave and girlfriend Amanda Bearse has also fallen under his spell does Ragsdale succeed in enlisting the help of "fearless" TV vampire hunter Roddy McDowall to end Sarandon's reign of terror. Neatly parodying Hitchcock and John Hughes movies, writer/director Tom Holland litters his rattling story with as many laughs as jolts. He is well served by his cast, notably Sarandon and McDowall, who ham with gusto.
