Parker’s Pics

Just in time for Halloween, Parker’s Pics serves up two terrifying films: The 1985 cult classic, Fright Night and the legitimately scary 2005 Japanese chiller Noroi: The Curse

First up, the fun horror romp that is the original Fright Night. The plot is pretty simple, a teenage nerd is forced to confront a vampire who has moved in next door. Of course, being a teenage, no one is willing to believe his wild stories that the charismatic bachelor living next door is a blood thirsty vampire responsible for a string of disappearances. Unable to convince the cops or his mom, he turns to the only man he could think of…a washed-up actor named Peter Vincent who hosts a local horror TV show called Fright Night.

The film in of itself is a great teenage horror movie, with solid performances from the cast and some good special effects. What really makes the film a must-see cult-classic is Chris Sarandon performance as Jerry Dandrige, the vampire. Jerry has been on this earth a long time and comes at things with a relaxed pragmatism. At one point he just admits that he’s a vampire to our protagonist and tries to hash out a live-and-let-live deal. Sarandon is a lot of fun in the role, managing to be both charming and at times incredibly dangerous. Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for something that’s more fun than scary.

Noroi: The Curse on the other hand is a movie for people who are looking for some actual frights. The film is a Japanese found-footage horror epic featuring a plot that can be best described a sprawling. Here’s the basic premise: following a house fire that killed his wife, Masafumi Kobayashi, a famed paranormal researcher, has gone missing.Months later, a local TV studio receives a tape of Kobayashi’s final investigative documentary titled, “The Curse”. What starts off as an investigation of a disturbed woman living in Tokyo quickly spirals into a fight against an ancient evil, possessed TV personalities, suicide cults and many dead birds.

Noroi is definitely not for everyone.

  • It’s in Japanese, so subtitles.
  • It’s a found-footage movie (so a lot of shaky camera work),
  • It’s nearly two hours long and
  • There is a character in it that’s so annoying that it nearly sinks the whole movie.

Saying all that, Noroi is an impactful horror experience, filled with disturbing imagery and an eerie, dread-inducing atmosphere and certainly worth a watch

Fright Night is currently available for digital rental on Youtube or for free with a cable subscription on AMC.
Noroi: The Curse is streaming exclusively on Shudder.
