Fright Night (1985) - Tom Holland

Fright Night is a really cool 80's movie that has tremendous re-watch value. I like how this movie is set in "The Real World" and things like Vampires, Werewolves, Mummies, and whatnot only exist in the "Movie world". The movie stars Chris Sarandon, Roddy McDowall, Steven Geofferys, William Ragsdale, and Amanda Bearse (Marcy D'Arcy from Married With Children) as the love interest and damsel in distress. The entire film has this whole John Hughes feel to it that makes it really fun to watch. You could really watch this movie back to back with something like Ferris Buller and be pretty content. 
The movie is about a boy that knows that his new neighbor is a vampire. He tries to get everyone around him to believe it but, of course, they don't. He knows that its only a matter of time before this blood sucker next door pays him a visit and he has to do something about it, and he enlists his girlfriend Amy, friend Evil Ed, and former vampire movie actor Pete…
