Product Description

If I rated the movie alone, I'd give it five stars. Unfortunately, I have to warn anyone who wants to buy this DVD format from Artisan. I own over 150 DVD's and I've never come across such a sad excuse for a DVD. The picture quality is HORRIBLE! If you look closely, you can see that it was taken from a tape source, and not the original. Plus, Artisan claims on the back of the box that it is formatted from its "original" aspect ratio, and that it was shot in full screen. That is a blatant lie. It was shot in letterbox widescreen, just as the first film was. You can even tell when you watch it that it has been cropped to death, and at certain moments the screen moves from right to left to catch what's missing. The audio is 2.0 Dolby surround, which is fine. However, when you turn the volume up to hear the more quiet parts of the film, you hear tape hiss. Beware of Artisan releases on DVD. Their transfers are usually like this. I have a few other older films released by them, and they're pretty poor in the quality department. It is a great film however, and is worth having no matter what. I guess this DVD is better than not having it...Almost.

From the Back Cover

Welcome to Fright Night Part II. Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), "The Great Vampire Killer," and Charlie Brewster (William Ragsdale) are back in the long-awaited sequel to the box office smash hit Fright Night. And so are the bloodthirsty creatures of the night. Charlie has just met Regine Dandridge (Julie Carmen), an exotic, heart-stopping beauty with a deadly taste for things warm and red. He can't stop thinking about her...dreaming about her. Not even Charlie's girlfriend, Alex (Traci Lin), nor Peter Vincent can keep him from being mesmerized by her fatally seductive powers. As the irresistible Regine drains the blood from his veins, Charlie is suddenly jolted by the spine-chilling reality that there's only one thing more terrifying than fighting vampires - becomng one. Director Tommy Lee Wallace (Halloween III) has surpassed the fright of the original film to create a tantalizing shocker in Fright Night Part II. This time the suckers want more than blood. They want revenge!

Customer Reviews

The picture quality on this DVD is worse than the VHS and Laserdisc!!!
Chad Brymer
Liked how the vampires used echo-locator, other than that and having not too bad monster (at the end of the movie) it was nothing new.

Others have commented on the generally poor quality of the DVD by Artisan.

I have bought a few cheapie $3.99 DVD movies. Though the picture was far from great, thery were no worse than VHS picture quality. I recently bought Fight Night Part II on DVD for $10.99 and the picture quality is atually worse than the VHS that I have! What the hell happened! Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that Artisan Entertainment is digging and releasing some old classics from their vaults, but if your going to release them like this then don't bother! This is by for the worst from Artisan. Bride of Re-Animator, Waxwork, and Lair of the White Worm were disappointents because of the poor picture quality, no widescreen formats, and lack of supplemental material, but Fright Night Part II takes the cake as their worst release! MGM may be getting lazy too and only releasing their titles only in Full Screen format, but at least their movies have good picture quality! Artisan needs to shape up or get out! Artisan should sell the rights of their older movies to Anchor Bay Entertainment so they could be properly released!

WHY WHY WHY don't companies like Artisan recognize that horror movie fans, being basically nerds (like me), are more fanatical about video and sound than anyone else? Anchor Bay - bless 'em -gets it, and so can mainstream studios ("The Fog" release is brilliant).
But not Artisan. Instead of admitting that we're very intelligent film-goers who don't live in our parents' basements (well, most of us), they throw us the lowest common denominator garbage like this worthless DVD of a very good film. (Which for me very nearly equals the original; Roddy trapped atop the elevator while the bat-Regine claws her way up remains very effective.) All quibbles about wide-screen aside (I don't know which is true, but I did see it in the theatre and it sure seemed wide-screen), the picture quality is amazing for its sheer awfulness. I'm so sick of throw-away presentations like this. They put out the least possible amount of effort to get by, and assume that fans will be happy to have the film in any form.
Well, no more.
Boycott this DVD! Power to ignored and maligned horror fans everywhere!

Bootleg. This guy purchased a promo DVD that I purchased at a convention and sold to him on eBay. He has re-released it as an "official" release of his own. However, the promo DVD that was originally sold to him on eBay was from Paramount. Paramount did a remastered print of the film in 2008 and currently hold the HDTV rights to this release, as you will note Paramount's logo which appears at the end of the credits. I will be sure to make Paramount aware of this unauthorized bootlegger asap. P.S. This "seller" aka bootlegger is also selling these on eBay claiming they are originals.

A few years ago while still in High School, Charlie Brewster killed the vampire Jerry Dandridge with the help of his long time idol, film hero Peter Vincent, The Great Vampire Killer. Charlie's therapist has since convinced him that he did not kill a vampire and there are no such things as vampires. The therapist is wrong and Jerry Dandridge's sister is in town to even the score. William Ragsdale and Roddy McDowall reprise their roles as Charlie Brewster and Peter Vincent in "Fright Night Part 2". Julie Carmen plays Regine Dandridge, the sister of the late Jerry Dandridge. Regine is posing as a performance artist and takes over Peter's show "Fright Night". She then proceeds to take steps to make Charlie a vampire, which she feels will be the ultimate revenge for what he did to her brother. Charlie finds himself fighting the vampire nature that is rising within him while he and Peter race to save Charlie's girlfriend from the vampires and to keep Charlie from joining them. It's a worthy follow-up to the original movie.

Format: DVD
Fright Night Part II is, IMO, very nearly the equal of the first movie, which itself is my favorite horror film of all time. That said, I have been waiting for a few years (ever since the release of the first FN film by Columbia TriStar in '99) for Part II to become available on DVD.
I'm not disappointed that the presentation is full-frame, 1.33:1, as from what I understand, the film was originally shot in this aspect ratio. I'm not even disappointed that there aren't any extras to speak of (extras being rare for any sequel DVD, really).
No, the problem lies with the ABOMINABLE transfer. The movie seems to have been mastered directly from whatever print Vista had lying around--it's very grainy and looks about the same, or perhaps slightly worse than, an SP speed VHS copy. For DVD, it's absolutely hideous. Artisan should know better than to release such product without at least attempting a remastering which would have tightened up the picture and made it worth the DVD release (look at the 2 films' DVD releases side-by-side...nothing to compare!).
If you're a Fright Night completist or just really really like the movie, buy this DVD. It'll keep your VHS copy (you know you have one!) from withering away. Don't buy the disc looking to be wowed by the digital format, you'll disappoint yourself (I did).
The movie: 4 stars (out of 5)
The DVD: 1 star
Average rating: 2.5 stars
