Fright Night Gets a Comic Book Sequel!
Holland Brought the charming story of love, friendship and the vampire next door, back in 1985, and it was quickly followed up by a sequel in 1988. But that was pretty much the end for Charly Brewster, Amy Peterson and Peter Vincent. However, back in 2017, Holland dropped the bomb that he was writing a third film, in the form of a novel, that would certainly bring back both Charley and Amy.
Charley and Amy yes. Not sure who lives next door now but I bet he has fangs…..

Several years on, and the book has morphed into a screenplay sequel to Fright Night. We had an update last year, and we honestly couldn’t be more exited. The project is now know as Fright Night 2: Resurrection, and will bring back nearly all the cast from the first film, including Jerry Dandridge.
“Of course, Charlie’s back, and so is Evil Ed. I’m bringing back everybody I can. I’m calling it Resurrection because we’ve got to resurrect Billy Cole and Jerry Dandridge. And now I’ll say no more,”
But what of Peter Vincent. Sadly actor Roddy McDowall passed away in 1998, so it’s very unlikely we will see him back on the big screen. However, his character certainly will live on, as the promised comic book sequels are finally on their way. Holland announced in 2018 that he would be re-visiting the classic Fright Night comic books that would continue the adventures of Charly, Amy and Peter.
If you dug the ‘Fright Night’ comic book series back in the day, I have good news. I’m bringing it back! New stories and illustrations are under way. Stay tuned for more tales from Peter Vincent! #FrightNight pic.twitter.com/7LUHZpE6gP
