Synopsis


Fright Night
A suburban Las Vegas teenager realizes that his new neighbor is a charismatic vampire in this remake of the 1985 horror comedy hit. After years of climbing to reach the top of the social ladder, high school senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally rules the roost. Just as Charley ditches his best pal, "Evil" Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and starts dating the most popular girl in their class, however, a handsome new face appears in the neighborhood. It belongs to Charley's new neighbor Jerry (Colin Farrell), an outwardly amiable guy with a quick smile and a sharp wit. But when Ed vanishes without a trace andCharley sees a side of Jerry that everyone else seems to miss, the nouveau popular teen becomes convinced that the nice-guy act is a cover for something truly sinister. Unable to convince his mother (Toni Collette) that Jerry is a genuine bloodsucker, Charley turns to Las Vegas magician Peter Vincent (David Tennant) to help exterminate the demon before he drinks the entire neighborhood dry. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    It is sad to say that this is one of the last movies to star Anton Yelchin but this is one of his best. This is a reboot of an older movie. And this one has a lot to like about it. Colin Ferral is great as the vampire that has just moved into the neighborhood. Anton is the hero in the movie. The movie has lots of action and comedy throughout it. If you like vampire movies you should give this one a try.

    Highly Enjoyable Vampire Flick

    I was pleasantly surprised with this film. I'm a real fan of the original, and was expecting a pretty much frame for frame remake updated for the 30 years difference. This version adhered to the general plot, but enough changes were made to make the film more of an homage rather than a remake of the original. I'll watch it again next Halloween season, a day or two after watching the original.

    There's a lot to like about this remake, but at the end of the day it's not better than the original. It has a very good cast and does some clever things in updating the source material, but at the end of the day feels a little too slick and polished, lacking most of the goofy charm of the original movie. It's fine, but not something I'd revisit as much as the 1985 Fright Night.

    I watched the original as a kid in the 80s and loved it ever since. This remake starring Colin Farrel is actually quite good. It follows the same basic "vampire next door" story and manages to keep the same character names as the original. No its not an Oscar winning film, but its fun, has some genuinely scary moments and is a great update of a cult classic.

    This movie didn't blow the box office up and it isn't a classic by any means, but, I do think its a solid new age "horror" flick. I think the cast and plot is questionable and small, but, again for what they had this movie with it is a serviceable effort and an alright viewing if you choose to give it a look. On a side note I enjoyed the music in the movie but thats just me and a tiny part of the overall product.

    A lot of ghosting throughout the movie.

    Too much ghosting/blurring throughout the movie. The plot was a little weak. The best part is when the vampires blowup, especially at the end of the movie -- totally fantasic. The movie started out real slow. Still probably worth watching just keep in mind that you need to watch it through to the end to make it worth it.

    for a remake of the 1st one, this one was good and the updated verison was not a disappointment to me nor did it try to change the plot from the original as I said earlier only to give it a more updated verison. Though I like this one, I still immensely enjoy the original, which you also check out.
