|Fright Night 2|
Granted, the original is far superior, but Fright Night 2 brings the beautiful people and the special effects, and the story isn't a bad backup. In fact, it delves even more deeply into the retelling of the Dracula tale than perhaps the first, which was basically a rehash (though also stylish, effective, and "updated"), but it focuses more on images than anything else.
But, wow! Those images are exceptional. Despite its flaws, there isn't a more recent flick that carries the stylish horror show any further, any better, than Fright Night 2.
