Director Anthony DiBlasi has made a slew of horror movies over the past few years, from his 2009 Clive Barker adaptation Dread to this year’s Last Shift, the tale of a rookie cop (Juliana Harkavy from The Walking Dead), a closing police station, and a Manson-like cult, which is now available to buy on Blu-ray and DVD.

But what does DiBlasi recommend as the ultimate Halloween movie? The answer is director Tom Holland’s original, and much-beloved, 1985 vampire tale, Fright Night.

“The true spirit of Halloween is always captured for me by a great piece of special makeup effects and Fright Night hits all the right foam latex-filled chords,” says DiBlasi. “With one incredible creature design after another, and a synth score from Terminator theme creator Brad Fiedel that features an electric saxophone screeching like neon sex, Fright Night is a horror classic I make sure to watch every year.”

You can see the promotional clip for Fright Night, above, and the, rather more guesome, red band trailer for Last Shift, below.
