HOLLYWOOD—Just in time for Halloween, the sequel to the 2011 remake of “Fright Night” arrives on DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, Oct. 1. It is unrated.
Titled “Fright Night 2: New Blood,” this direct-to-video sequel feature an all-new cast.

Charley (Will Payne) and “Evil” Ed (Chris Waller) must stop Gerri from drinking and bathing in the blood of a “new moon virgin,” which just so happens to be Charley’s ex-girlfriend, Amy (Sacha Parkinson). They enlist help from Peter Vincent (Sean Power), the vampire hunting host of a reality show called “Fright Night,” to drive a stake through Gerri’s plan and save Amy from a fate worse than death.
Bonus features on the Blu-ray (which have the DVD and Digital HD Ultraviolet versions as well) include audio commentary by director Eduardo Rodriguez and producers Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta, “Fright Night” Webisodes and “Dracula Revealed.”
