Fright Night gets right to it
5 second plot: Charley finds out that his new neighbor is a vampire. And he's killing someone every day. Everyone thinks Charley's imagination is running wild because he's a fan of monster movies. But the threat is real and soon enough Charley gets himself into a whole lot of trouble.
5 second review: This movie's got that awesome teenage '80s vibe. Add the fact that it's an old school fun monster movie and you've got a winner. There are some flaws here and there and it's sometimes overly dramatic. But it's still pretty decent and it's got some great memorable visual effects.
