“Welcome to Fright Night”.

The classic 1985 horror film Fright Night is getting a 4K release. According to the Twitter account The Disc Father, (with artwork TBD), the film is coming to 4K Ultra HD. Fright Night was written and directed by Tom Holland. It stars Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Roddy McDowall, and Stephen Geoffreys. It follows a teenage boy who has a vampire move in next door to him. After witnessing the vampire murder someone, no one believes him, so he goes to a famous horror host, Peter Vincent, to get his help.

It’s an absolute classic of a vampire film from the ’80s, and this is the first 4K release of the film. Previously, there was a Blu-ray release with plenty of extras from Eureka. That release is region-free and can be played in any Blu-ray player. Thankfully, 4K is also region-free.

We’re all still waiting for an official release of Fright Night Part 2 on Blu-ray or 4K, so hopefully, this one is a precursor to that release. We’ll keep you updated as this develops with the special features and other details.
