Where did the other Fright Nights fail?

“The Fright Night story was very specific. It's about a teenager with a passion for horror movies who convinces himself that his neighbor is a vampire. True? That's how I was. And he was writing about the movies he loved when he was 15, 16 and 17 years old. And it was the AIP and Hammer Horror movies starring Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Vicent Price… and that's how you get Peter Vicent, the horror movie host. So I was writing about myself and how I was growing up. And I thought the film was strong and had human values, especially Peter Vicent, the character of Roddy McDowall. The story was strong and vampires were good at it. "

Although Fright Night: Resurrection already has one novel written by Holland, the director is still working on the script. The truth is that he is quite advanced and confesses that has already written 31000 words. And while the sequel is not expected to be a box office hit, it will be interesting to see the creator's vision in theaters. | Cinema, comics and series
