    Fright Night is a really fun horror film with cool violence and great performances.

    The original "Fright Night" movie from 1985 was a fun, affectionate, well-made horror romp that attracted a reasonable cult fan base. The remake, however, while an efficient enough movie, is a bit of a soulless, dead-eyed charmless affair. The basic storyline from Tom Holland’s original film remains intact with only relatively minor tweakings and upgradings, so in this version we have we have Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) as a nerdy horror-obsessed teen, who is convinced that a vampire is at large…

    As if I need to say it but "not as good as the original" but also not as bad as it could've been.

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

    I love the original "Fright Night." It's my all-time favorite vampire movie. So I went into the recent remake expecting to hate it. The characters seem overly hipped out and the cast included Anton Yelchin and Colin Ferrial, two actors I've never liked. I figured this was just an example of a studio trying to cash in on the vampire craze and whatever name recognition they figured an underseen cult classic from the mid-eighties had.

    And it's mostly all of…

    Pretty fun actually. Decent performances all around, good pacing and mostly fun visuals and screenplay.

    Surprisingly well done. It only lacks the fun factor of the original (It's not "dark and brooding", but less a comedy than the original) and works best, whenever it tries to be its own movie.

    Almost everything that was imported from the original, feels out of place here. Peter Vincent is completely useless (and his backstory is ridiculous) and Evil Ed's character arc is rushed and could have left on the cutting room floor.

    That said, all actors are good…

    Vampires are inherently fascinating, but the films that depict them rarely are. Jean Rollin's filmography and Kathryn Bigelow's Near Dark are the main exceptions. HBO's True Blood reigned supreme in this genre for seven wondrous seasons while Hollywood movies redefined vampires as those pale and dangerously sexy. It's ideas that vampire films have lacked and those stories are compelling precisely because of ideas. Where would vampires live? How would vampires behave in society? What type of relationships could vampires have…

    For many years now, Hollywood has been churning out remakes of once popular movies (with particular aim at the horror genre) with only one thing in mind: money. Very few remakes released on the past 15 years have failed to do more than just tell the same basic story again, leading to boring and uninspired pieces of filmmaking. This is why films such as "Fright Night" are a huge relief to see after enduring so many crappy horror remakes. What…
