Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Though less of a delightful humor-horror medley than its predecessor, this vampire sequel still boasts a sturdy script, a winning cast, and stylish production design that makes the most of a modest budget. Roddy McDowall and William Ragsdale reprise their respective roles as a bumbling old Van Helsing wannabe and his youthful sidekick. Even if the in-jokes about The Fearless Vampire Killers weren't explicit, the picture would still fall squarely in the long, proud tradition of films that simultaneously cherish and ridicule the tropes of vampire cinema. Traci Lind's stuffy girlfriend role isn't much fun for either the actress or the audience, but Julie Carmen makes a fetchingly boho vampire babe, as do her various colorful minions. She's nowhere near as outlandish as Grace Jones in Vamp, nor is Fright Night Part 2 an improvement over the zeitgeist-capturing Lost Boys. Still, with its inventive effects and sultry atmosphere, the film proves to be an enjoyable piece of workmanship, especially for a sequel.

I always heard bad things about it but it was pretty good for a sequel. The first one is obviously better but it is still good.
