S.1 E.2 - Fright Night (1985)

Welcome back to another episode of Tracks of the Damned where Patrick asks an important question: If a sexually frustrated teenage girl wants to run away with her geeky boyfriend's hunky next door neighbor, is it really so wrong just because he's a bloodthirsty vampire? This is the sort of adolescent philosophical discourse you get into when you watch Tom Holland's Rear Window meets Dracula classic Fright Night (1985)

With a cast full of queer actors and a tone to match, Patrick dives into Tom Holland's Hitchcock-inspired direction, the history of Dracula lore, and just what a good soundtrack full of songs written expressly for the film can accomplish. He also answers a round of listener questions, including finally determining once and for all if An American Werewolf in London is a horror film or a comedy.
