Heartwarming / Fright Night (1985)

Go To

  • Amy never stops caring about Charley, despite his mind being so focused on Jerry Dandridge. She comes to his house to find his room covered in crosses and sees him sharpening wooden stakes, and tries to talk to him in a way that she hopes will get through to him, considering his mental state at the time. Nonetheless, there is some sincerity in her voice when she tries to talk him out of killing Jerry.
    Charley: You don't believe me, do you?
    Amy: I love you, Charley.

  • Peter finding himself unable to let Charley and his friends die. He's scared shitless, of course, but seeing how he previously tried to run away after he discovered that vampires are real, it counts for something.
  • Once Jerry is destroyed, Charley, Peter, and Amy all share a group hug. After all the adversity they faced throughout the movie, it's just ... awwwww.
  • At the end, it's heavily implied that Charley and Amy have sex, which is heartwarming in that Amy was so distant from Charley at the beginning and kept trying to refuse his advances, while over the course of the movie, he kept blowing her off because of his obsession with his new neighbor. Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other indeed.
