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

This is a great remake of the classic Fright Night movie. Really enjoyed Collin Farrell and Anton Yelchin in this film. I would have purchased a 4K version, if it was available, but the picture and sound quality on this Blu Ray version is very good.
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.
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.
I found this remake more entertaining than the original. Colin Farrell is creepy as the main antagonist, and Anton Yelchin's performance was a good counter to Farrel's villain. David Tennant is a great addition.
Compared to most modern films about vampires, this one takes the old-school rules and applies them to modern day life instead of rewriting or ignoring them. The story is well paced and the characters are all fun to watch.
