Monster of the Day #1031

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, that’s the stuff.

  • Gamera977

    Yes, what an awesome ending!

  • Beckoning Chasm

    Well, the first pic is technically from “Lifeforce” isn’t it?

  • Yes. Yes it is. You can see the metal shaft sticking in the space vampire.

    What a great movie.

  • Flangepart

    Hummm…the downside of being a Vamp…being a guy with no ‘Hangin’ downs’, if ya know what I mean.

    Interesting so, did they use a little stock footage in Fright Night or is just this collage?

  • Eric Hinkle

    I remember thinking that ending (for Fright Night) was amazing the first time I saw it. The vamp gets blasted across the room by sunlight and fried to ash as it shrieks and howls like a bat from Hades. Great stuff!

  • Beckoning Chasm

    Remember, it has to be leaded iron. And not in the heart, but in the energy center two centimeters below the heart.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    I think both Fright Night and Lifeforce were made the same year, so using the latter as stock would be problematic…I have to admit, though, it’s been a while since I’ve seen FN.

  • The bat was never that big in Fright Night I don’t think. They might have shared FX teams

  • You would have thought that with all the times I’ve watched that film, I could have gotten the quote right. But nope! Not even close.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    Probably not, as Lifeforce was made in England, and Fright Night was made in California. It may just be that if you’re going to have what looks like a skinned bat, there are only a couple of ways of presenting it.

  • SteveWD

    There was, supposedly, a “too scary” rejected librarian ghost puppet from Ghostbusters used in Fright Night. Most of the same FX crew worked on those. I think Fright Night was probably Boss Films first visual effects credit. They did some awesome stuff in the 80’s/90’s.

  • The Rev.

    Yeah, by that point I already knew I was going to be watching this movie again and again. That was just the final nail in the coffin, so to speak. Just a spectacular ending.

  • Marsden

    What is this, the fourth Batman reboot?
    (Joking, I know it’s Fright Night. Vampires were so much better back then.)
