Zavvi and Eureka are bringing us a jam-packed new Steelbook release of “Fright Night” in December
UPDATE – Zavvi have confirmed that they will be cancelling bulk orders by profiteers who were listing this on eBay within minutes at over double the price. The spare stock will be made available for sale again – we’ll update as soon as we know when.
On December 26th you’ll be able to get your hands on this great looking and fully loaded steelbook release of the cult classic Fright Night.
Pre-orders went live briefly in error, before being pulled, but we can now confirm they will be officially live at 6pm UK time on Sunday November 6th, so ignore the ‘sold out’ button before then.
He’s sweet, sexy, and he likes to get in late. You might think he’s the perfect neighbour. But before inviting him Jerry in for a nightcap, there’s something you should know. Jerry prefers his drinks warm, red, and straight from the jugular! It’s Fright Night, a horrific howl starring Chris Sarandon as the seductive vampire and William Ragsdale as the frantic teenager struggling to keep Jerry’s deadly fangs out of his neck. Only 17-year-old Charley Brewster (Ragsdale) knows Jerry’s bloodcurdling secret. When Charley can’t get anybody to believe him, he turns to TV horror host Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), who used to be the “Great Vampire Killer” of the movies. Can these mortals save Charley and his sweetheart Amy (Amanda Bearse) from the wrathful bloodsucker’s toothy embrace? If you love being scared, Fright Night will give you the nightmare of your life!
