Worthy tribute to its forefather

"Welcome to Fright Night. For real."

In 1985's Fright Night, Peter Vincent pointed out that '80s movie-goers aren't interested in seeing vampires (or vampire killers) anymore; "All they want to see is slashers running around in ski masks, hacking up young virgins." In 2011, these words ring ever truer. The Twilight series has expunged any interest and menace that vampires once had, ... read more

This movie was better than I expected it too be. Being a fan of the original, I went into this one not knowing what too expect. And what I got was a pretty solid movie. I reminded me of a Buffy / Angel episode, and when I saw Marti Noxon wrote the screen play I knew why. I really enjoued the movie and will be adding it too my DVD collection when it comes out.

Okay, remakes can either be good or bad, and this one was pretty damn good. I loved that Chris Sarandon got a small part in it, as he was "Jerry" in the original (which I love). It also made a lot of sense to me that I really enjoyed this when I saw that Marti Noxon (Buffy/Angel) wrote the screenplay, which makes me really happy. The effects were pretty awesome, the movie has the right mix of s... read more

"It's okay for a horror remake but I still don't think it needed to be made. I have nothing against David Tennant, but....his portrayal of Peter Vincent was too...Russell Brand-like with a sprinkle of Criss Angel. When I hear the name 'Peter Vincent', I think of Roddy McDowell in the original and I certainly do NOT think of a 'Russell Brand Impersonator'. Also Collin Farrell is okay as Jerry but he's not as menacing or charismatic as Chris Sarandon was in the original. In the original Chri"

An average movie

“Since I kept hearing some good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Basically, it is yet another vampire movie dealing with some teenagers and even though it was more rewarding than 'Twilight', it was still not original enough to be really amazing but, still, I thought it was fairly entertaining. To be honest, I haven't seen the original version from the 80's but, apparently, they have changed most of the story. Anyway, there was a nice cast (Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Tonijn Collette, David Tennant, Imogen Poots, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Dave Franco and David Sarandon who actually played the Jerry character in the original version). Above all, Colin Farrell seemed to have a lot of fun playing this modern vampire. Eventually, even though they definitely” read more

“Fright Night is not a bad remake, some movies can be modernized and that is what they did here which turned out to a good idea. The movie is about Charley who finds out that, his neighbour Jerry is a vampire. The movie basicly sticks to the orginal, I like the acting more in the remake but I am a fan of Colin Farrell who plays Jerry. For a vampire horror film, it is not that bad and one you can watch.” read more

" viewed: February 27, 2013 It was definitely boring. I don't especially like trash about vampires, in total I don't know why I thought that this movie is a good idea for an interesting evening. I'm still trying to convince that vampire movies may be of interest to me, but it didn't work out. Beginning boring, then a little some action, hardly surprising events for me. Even Toni Collette wasn't able to save this movie (the only interesting action - punching a traffic sign into a vampire by the mo"

"This remake was surprisingly good. The original was better, but this movie was still entertaining. I thought the movie did a pretty good job on staying close to the original movie and the acting wasn't too bad neither. "

"Day 26 – A movie that you love but everyone else hates This is real. He's a real monster and he's not brooding, or lovesick, or noble. He's the fucking shark from Jaws. He kills, he feeds, and he doesn't stop until everybody around him is dead. And I seriously am so angry you think I read Twilight. Maybe not that everyone hates it, but they just don't love it as much as I do! :) "
