    Wow, what a surprisingly fresh vampire movie, especially for all of the current vampire movies. Before watching this, I was deciding whether to watch this one or the 1985 version. Call me shallow, but the new one looked more pleasing.

    Mezcla de terror y comedia, remake de una peli ochentera, a mi me ha sorprendido gratamente. Empieza creando tensión y poco a poco va dejando paso a la comedia (aunque sin pasarse). Collin Farrell como vampiro carismático y socarrón destaca junto con un David Tennant pasado de vueltas el la piel de un "experto en ocultismo" que tiene mas de showman que de cazavampiros. Muy entretenida.

    An otherwise forgettable supernatural thriller, this 2011 remake of the 1985 semi-classic is complemented by solid performances all round, but elevated far beyond expectations by Farrell's powerful, playful, confident turn as suburban vampire Jerry.

    A winning mix of Brando intensity, Elias Koteas tics and Farrell's own easy charm, Jerry is a monster, but one with wit, humour and a curious affection for his intended victims.

    The movie drags considerably when Farrell is off-screen but is occasionally enlivened by the inclusion…

    Deliciously wicked. Camp, funny, gory in places, with a very watchable cast. It's only Tennant that doesn't fare as well in the edit. Hugely enjoyable.

    Lo mejor es la primera parte donde esta bien manejado el suspenso con el lado cómico que tiene también la versión original, Collin Farrel realmente lo borda y me parece que deja muy mal parados a los actores juveniles.

    Una vez que el caza vampiros entra en acción la película a mi parecer pierde todo fuelle, la parte cómica se torna tonta y sin gracia, el suspenso desaparece para dar paso a una acción mas bien chusquera, una lastima porque…

    Ya know what? It's fun. And Colin Farrell is mega weird in it, which makes it awesome.

    David Tennant (and Colin Farrell).
    I've got nothing more to say.

    I would argue this is just as good-if not better- than the original. Anton Yelchin is an excellent Everyman hero and David Tennant is great as Peter Vincent. But the movie belongs to Colin Ferrell. He is obviously having a blast with the material and delivers one of his strongest performances,
    Not perfect by any means but well worth a viewing. Underrated and under seen.

    [English/ Spanish review]

    Part of the "Dad, let's watch something scary together" (again)

    My daughter asked me to re-re-watch it again with a friend, and we had a very good time indeed. I still prefer this version to the original in some ways (forgetting about the silly 3D effects, which fortunately are not too annoying): the movie retains the main bits of the original story, with a bleaker tone and a very solid cast, from the 'serious characters' (Anton Yelchin,…

    An inferior remake (duh) that still manages to do enough new things to keep itself entertaining. All the gore from the first one is replaced with terrible looking cgi, and the cautious, subtly threatening Jerry is replaced by a dude who blows up houses and punches through cars. The main saving grace here has got to be the Peter Vincent character again, who has been smartly reimagined for the modern era from a washed up old Vincent Price-esque actor into…
