Everyone has neighbors. Even all the creeps. Every creepy thing, every creepy creep… all live next door to someone. Do you know who your neighbors are? Do you ever see them out? In the daylight?
In the Fright Night films, Charley Brewster gets a new neighbor with strange sleeping habits and a weird diet of fruit… and people. Well, people’s blood anyway!
Lend these guys some sugar?
With all the fad diets out there, you never can be too careful. Maybe you should adjust your diet too… just add some garlic to everything.
David Tennant as Peter Vincent in the 2011 film thinks that’s an excellent suggestion.
You may want to watch Fright Night (1985) and Fright Night (2011) to see how Charley handled the situation along with help from famed vampire killer Peter Vincent. Both films are available at the Media Library.
In an October Scare-A-Day post last week, we mentioned Tom Savini for his work on Dawn of the Dead (1978).
Tom Savini is a master of movie makeup, gore, special effects, and visual effects. You have also seen him acting in several spooky/gorey flicks such as From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror, and even in a special cameo of the Dawn of the Dead remake in 2004.
Did you catch the reference?
Take a look behind the scenes and gore, fake blood, and latex as Savini himself talks about his gruesome craft in this Video on Demand available through the UNT Media Library, “Horror Effects Hosted By Tom Savini“.
If you want a little more, “I Heart Monster Movies” is also available for online viewing and features an interview with Tom Savini along with other big horror buffs, including Sid Haig, Doug Bradley, Bill Moseley, Dee Wallace, and many others.
Don’t be scared to check out the online videos available through the UNT Media Library. There’s something for everyone!
