I'm re-watching it now on Netflix. It's so great— scary, funny, so 80's, and of course has the wonderful Evil Ed who steals the show.
Fun Fact: Stephen Geoffreys (Evil Ed) didn't leave acting altogether after Fright Night but started (or continued?) doing gay porn and low budget horrors, and seems to have enjoyed himself. I'm sad for me that we didn't see more mainstream performances by Stephen Geoffreys, but he definitely put in a memorable performance as Evil Ed, and for that, I thank him heartily.
