I know the rating says that this movie is bad, and it is, technically speaking, it's just not as bad as one would imagine. Perhaps the problem with this, and many other movies like this, is that they take a generic script, make some slight changes to it so it fits with the name of the famous franchise that they're attaching to it and voila. I'm 99.9% certain that this script did not start out as the sequel to Fright Night's remake. I'd be willing to be on that. They just called it Fright Night 2 because it might entice some people to give it a shot, because they enjoyed either the original (or the sequel to that) or its remake. That's the only way. The changes to the film are pretty much the same stuff you saw in the original or the remake. Guy comes across vampire, nobody believes him, guy recruits an 'expert' on these mythological creatures, expert helps guy gets rid of vampire. It's, essentially, the same shit here and that's where, I think, the movie falters. Instead of, at least, trying to carve its own path, in however limited that path may have been, they instead went with what worked two previous other times. I never saw the original's sequel so I have no idea what that film did. It's not like anybody would've expected this movie to set the world on fire, it's a movie that was meant to cash in on the name of a successful horror movie, so I think you can take some sort of risk while still fulfilling Universal's goal of trying to cash in on the franchise. The movie's 'selling', if it can be called that, based on the name and not on the content. That's just a matter of fact, so part of me wishes that they would've taken some more risks in trying to differentiate itself from a lot of the other direct to video sequels. But it is what it is, but the fact that they tried to appease to fans of Fright Night instead of trying to do something is one of the lamer parts about the movie. The acting isn't great, the cinematography is substandard and the gore isn't strong either. But it doesn't really take itself that seriously and that added some sort of B-movie enjoyment to the proceedings. You know it's not great, they (being the cast and crew) know it's not great, so you can just sit back, relax and just laugh at or with the movie, as long as they get a reaction out of you. So at least the film knows its place. And, thankfully, there's not the usual 'it's over, but it's not really over' trap that so many horror films fall into. The movie just ends and it's over. That's refreshing. I will say that this movie isn't boring and I think that a horror flick being boring is the worst sin possible. Yes, this isn't a good movie, but at least it's campy and that adds something to watching this. Not much, of course, but it does. What does hold it back is its unwillingness to do something fresh. Neither the acting nor the writing is anything to write home about. So there's that. I can't recommend it, of course, but I've seen considerably worse films like this out there.

Steve W (nl) wrote: A very decent outing for Chan in his early years. A unique plot where Jackie Chan plays the class clown in a Shaolin Temple, but after a villain steals a valuable book on how to do the 7-Fist Style and kills an important man, he mus take action by learning to fight from ghosts.Jackie is taught the long lost 5-Fist Style bythe ghosts and then must face the villain, but only after defeating the Lo Han monks in a test of worth. This action scene alone is worth viewing this chopsocky kung fu movie.A crazy ending action sequence and a cheesy villain reveal end it all. A decent kung fu movie with really funny dubbing.

Christopher S (fr) wrote: Interesting, but somewhat uninvolving adaptation of H.G. Wells' prophetic opus. Director William Cameron Menzies crafts an impressive visual spectacle, especially considering when it was made. But a number of intriguing ideas aside, the bland characters are just devices for pushing forward a plot that's more concerned with preachy idealism than compelling storytelling. But still, a fascinating classic for science-fiction fans.
