Vampires in the house!

The 1985 cult horror hit Fright Night will come to 4K Ultra HD in a limited edition Steelbook in time for Halloween viewing, according to a report on collider.com. Check out the trailer for the film on this page.

This new release–available Oct. 4–boasts more than 14 hours of bonus material–including multiple audio commentaries, panel discussions, deleted scenes and a cast reunion table read of the movie.

Fright Night–written and directed by Tom Holland–follows 17-year-old Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale), who finds out his next-door neighbor Jerry (Chris Sarandon) is really a vampire. Not surprisingly, no one believes him, so he enlists the help of a TV show host who acted in films as a vampire hunter to help him.

The film–which also featured Roddy McDowall, Amanda Bearse and Jonathan Stark–raked in $25 million on a budget of around $8 million and found a huge fan base through the years.

The original gave birth to Fright Night Part 2 in 1988, a 2011 remake and Fright Night 2: New Blood in 2013. Holland also confirmed he is working on a direct sequel to the original entitled Fright Night: Resurrection.
