"Evil Ed" is the vampire alter ego as well as nickname of Edward Thompson. He is the tertiary antagonist in the 1985 horror movie Fright Night and the secondary antagonist in the 2011 3D remake of the same name. He is the servant of Jerry Dandridge and partner of Billy Cole.
He was portrayed by Stephen Geoffreys in the original film and Christopher Mintz-Plasse in the remake.
Before his transformation, Ed was Charlie's best friend, though he was sometimes more of a bully than a friend and he often made fun of him. When Charley told him about his suspects about Jerry being a vampire, Ed laughed at him, but he also gave him informations on how to protect himself from vampires.
One night, Ed pranked Charley in front of his girlfriend Amy pretending he had been bitten by a vampire. The two teenagers argued, then Ed took a shortcut. The kid was stalked by Jerry, who managed to bite Ed, transforming him into a crazy and violent vampire.
Vampire Ed tried to kill Peter Vincent, the actor who wanted to help Charley to fight Jerry, but Peter protected himself using a cross and leaving Ed with a wound. Later, Ed transformed into a wolf and tried again to kill the actor, but was impaled and apparently killed by him.
