This is so cool, Brewster.

Last year saw the release of a limited edition Fright Night Blu-ray from Twilight Time, which quickly sold out and has subsequently been fetching ridiculous prices over on eBay. The Blu-ray, limited to just 5,000 copies, often sells for well over $100, but if you decided to hold out rather than drop that kind of money, we’re happy to report that your patience is now rewarded.

UK company Eureka Entertainment will be releasing a brand spankin’ new Fright Night Blu-ray on April 10th, 2017, and the special edition offering boasts a 4K restoration that we cannot wait to sink our fangs into. The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is already up for pre-order, so if you don’t yet have a region free player, we’re thinking now is the perfect time to grab one.

Special features, you ask? We’ve got you covered:

  • 4K digital restoration
  • Original stereo PCM soundtrack and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio options (on the Blu-ray)
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired

In Fright Night:

He’s sweet, sexy, and he likes to get in late. You might think he’s the perfect neighbour. But before inviting 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!
