Leeder, Murray."Forget Peter Vincent: Nostalgia, Self-Reflexivity, and Genre Past in Fright Night." Journal of Popular Film and Television Winter. 36.4 (2009): 190-199.
Leeder argues that Fright Night is an important horror film that is frequently overlooked by critics and was revolutionary in its postmodern approach to the genre. He discusses Jameson's theories on postmodernism and their presence within the film and reflects on how the film is rich with nostalgia and self reflexivity. Leeder's call for further reflection on the postmodern films of the 80s and his approach to topic of postmodernism within the Gothic genre is both insightful and fascinating.
