One of the best 80s vampire outings, this auteurish genre piece is watchable and entertaining with its perfect pacing, traditional tropes, peerless performances and upbeat scariness. Half the fun is seeing how William Ragsdale’s Charley Brewster tries to convince his friends (Amanda Bearse and Stephen Geoffreys) of his debonair neighbour’s penchant for a drop of human blood. Roddy McDowall is hilarious in vignette as the late night horror movie host Peter Vincent, and Sarandon plays the boy next door with all the suave sophistication of a young Vincent Price. Shame about the nightclub scene but, when it comes to the crunch, this is superior vampire fare.
