The Killer A.I. Trend Continues with ‘Afraid’ Trailer

Mark Hamill is fighting vampires with the original Fright Night (1985) cast and its director Tom Holland. This story comes to us from MovieWeb.

In 1985 Holland created the cult classic starring William Ragsdale and Chris Sarandon. The late Roddy McDowall portrayed Peter Vincent, a horror movie TV host who is recruited to fight Jerry Dandrich (Sarandon), a suave bloodsucker who goes head to head with Charley Brewster (Ragsdale) in order to keep his secret safe.

Hamill was cast as Vincent in The Table Read Podcast. He joined Holland and most of the original cast for the project. Hamill said at the time:

“I’m really looking forward to the episode, not only because of my love of Fright Night, but for the chance to play Peter Vincent & honor the legacy of the great Roddy MacDowall. I shared a dressing room with Roddy while doing a TV movie called Earth Angel & I’ll never forget his wit, charm & kindness, not to mention his memories of the Golden Age of Hollywood. I will treasure my experience with him forever & am humbled to join the wonderful original cast for this unique event.”

Holland, now 80, said the experience was a special one. 

“Bringing the original Fright Night cast back together with some very special guests for a reading of the film’s script on the Table Read Podcast has been an incredible experience. For the first time, we’ve reunited the original cast of this iconic masterpiece, bringing friends and creators together to celebrate both the past and the future.”
