    Shitty script and bland direction are generally nails in the coffin for any Horror movie but then adding the fact that this is a nought-teen remake of a beloved 80's horror flick is like rubbing garlic in the wound.

    This is a fun, gory, pointless and pedestrian remake but sometimes in life I like to grab myself a greasy burger and cheesy chips instead of fillet steak and fine wine. A perfectly enjoyable way to spend an evening if you don't mind lowering expectations and dealing with a lacklustre David Tenant.

    Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) is your everyday teenager who has evolved far enough up the foodchain to be considered one of the 'cool' kids. He even has a 'cool' girlfriend in the form of Imogen Poots. All he had to do was ditch his previous nerdy lifestyle, including his best friend, 'Evil' Ed Lee (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Life is pretty sweet. Except, Charley lives next to a vampire who looks suspiciously like Colin Farrell. And 'Evil' Ed has disappeared. Who can…

    I just wanted to get my David Tennant on. Other than that, don't bother, stick with the original.

    Surprised at how well this worked. Really captured the spirit of the original and is one of the few horror remakes of the past decade that didn't feel like a total cash-in.

    Original y muy divertida. Muy fan de Anton Yelchin como héroe flojeras (al igual que en Odd Thomas). Y, joder, Colin Farrell será un gilipollas pero hay que quererle.

    Loved the original when I was a child so it was nice to see an appearance from the original Jerry Dandridge... Getting a taste of his own medicine.

    Colin Farrell does a pretty good job of blood sucking.

    This is an all round entertaining modern take on the film.

    A decent, light hearted vamp remake with a surprisingly good turn from Colin Farrell. In no way is this scary but rolls along nicely with some solid CGI. Nice nod to the original with the cameo.

    No, this was not a great movie. I cannot even say it was decent. There were some funny scenes and lines from various characters, but I found no interest in what was happening on screen whatsoever.

    Watching this one again with some of the shine off of it makes me see some things that bug me, and it's more in the way it was filmed, which was with 3D in mind, which is fine if you're watching in 3D, but when you're watching 2D it looks almots comical and not in a good way. The story is still fun, most of the shots look great and the cast is genuinely fun and you care about them…
