    ★★★★½ Rewatched by Michael Raine 28 Jun, 2015

    Few movies are this cool, and even fewer remakes reinvent a concept this brilliantly. Everything makes more sense, down to Jerry the Vampire living in Vegas, and covering his tracks as a night time construction worker. Charlie, the nerd who got the babe, and Jerry represents the jock here to take her from him. Colin Farrell is always under appreciated, and this is him swinging his dick in his hand; in a way that shows only that he knows he's…

    Imogen Poots' charisma is quite simply off the charts in this. Can someone cast her in some major movies?

    ★★★ Rewatched by Nymphomaniac Vol. XI 23 Jun, 2015

    Just a few years later and the CGI is already super dated. That's why you don't use it unless you absolutely have to. Um, I'm a fan of this movie and I haven't really checked what other people think yet but I remember quite a few negative and really underwhelming reviews for it. I know it's movie nerd sacrilege but I actually like this quite a bit more than the original. It's appropriately tense and occasionally actually pretty creepy. Plus…

    Living with his divorced but still 'ripe' mother Jane (Toni Collette) in a new housing community outside Las Vegas, teenager Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) is a bundle of nerves, still not quite able to believe that beautiful Amy (Imogen Poots) is actually, willingly, his girlfriend. In the absence of a father, our virginal hero has long put behind him his boyhood friendship with the geeky 'Evil' Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), but now finds himself caught…

    I just love the grim atmosphere of this movie. Gillespie bleak directing enhances the experience plus the cast is all around great. If you want a neo 80's horror throwback this film might be the answer.

    + Imogen Poots is a total babe.

    It's been far too long since I saw the original Fright Night, so it's hard to compare the two films. I do remember really enjoying that one though and I kind of enjoyed this one too for the most part. It has a nice feel to it, with the suburban setting. Colin Farrell does a decent job as the vampire next door and David Tenant is good as the off the wall Peter Vincent character and is a lot of…

    clever dialogue, funny, phenomenally acted, relatively successful in creating suspenseful sequences, good music and direction.

    Wow a remake that is almost on par with its predecessor? It's true folks. This Fright Night gives the story you know and love, a modern twist but with the same entertainment value.

    Have to be honest though, Evil Ed was way better in the first one.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Colin Farrel shoulda used his regular Irish accent

    Not better or worse than the original, but different enough to stand on its own. Reminded me of the Dawn of the Dead remake and I appreciated this movie because of that.
