Not what was explained "A lot or a little"

I has horrified with the amount of blasphemy, and revolting speech of teenagers. A LOT OR A LITTLE? The SEX you described...… was in fact NOT correct. Woman in lingerie, breasts, bumps.. that to my understanding is in fact degrading, objectifying and should have been mentioned by CS. I am very disappointed in the information you provided towards, not only this movie but a few others I have also noticed you were not on par with but I chose to accept you can also make mistakes, however.... I am very disappointed in you CS as I pay for a service that is sometimes NOT safe.

Not too scary and a good vampire film

I haven't seen the 1985 Fright Night but I think this one is worth checking out. I'm not a fan of the horror genre so I can say this film is definitely not as scary as I thought it would be (I expected to not be able to sit through it). However, it has some violence especially towards the end. I think anyone over 16 can handle it and have fun with it. There's some comedy throughout that felt refreshing and I liked a lot. Fans of traditional vampire stories will definitely be pleased. The performances are great as well!
