    Misses some of the original's subtext, but adds plenty of its own. Updates what it needs to, but doesn't feel trendy. One of the best post-millennial horror remakes.

    A super fun vampire horror film, kinda of like Zombieland only with vampires instead of zombies. Oh and Colin Farrell is in it only he doesn't have an Irish accent which is probably why it gets a 4 instead of a 5

    Mīlu tos brīžus, kad uzduries necerēti labai izklaides filmai. Šī manās acīs ir teju perfekts paraugs tam kā arī bez liela budžeta un ambīcijām var radīt labu popkorna kino.

    The choice to modernize the original 1985 "Fright Night" doesn't like that bright an idea considering the current rule that all horror remakes suck, but somehow this became a unique effort due to diligent actors, a reliable director, and successful laugh and scare gags. It is, without exaggeration, the first great entry in the long line of atrocious horror remakes. It takes what we liked about the original and comes up some clever changes that update the story 30 years…

    I guess I was in a different place in my life when I genuinely enjoyed this movie and gave it 3.5 stars. The script is a mess, the CGI blood and 3D effects are gimmicky and ugly, and the story is fairly watered down from the original. But I get what it's going for - this movie is a callback to when vampires were scary in the 90s in the midst of the Twilight revolution. And the performances range from silly (Mintz-Plasse) to outright amazingly hilarious (Tennant).

    Having not seen the original, I can't imagine it being much worse. Then again, I've never been a fan of vampire flicks.

    Man, the special effects in this are awful. Space Jam looks better.

    Enjoyable kinda horror movie, especially if you are not a horror fan. I'm not one and enjoyed it. It's a better vampire portrayal than most modern vampire movies.

    I figured the original was about due for an update and this new version didn't let me down. Colin Farrell and David Tennant were spot on.

    A very underrated film in my opinion. It's dumb, it's goofy but it's incredibly entertaining and a hell of a lot of fun! 4/5.

    Una prueba de que no todos los remakes son malos. Una buena mezcla de suspenso, terror y retorcido humor. Colin Farrell se estaba divirtiendo, sin duda.
    Proff that not all remakes suck. Good mix of suspense, horror and a twisted sense of humor, Colin Farrell was having a blast, no doubt.

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

    The movie comes with a wonderful 3D presentation which fills the entire TV - down with black bars! - providing impressive depth and some fun pop-out moments. The only real downside sadly, is the film is really really dark thanks to it being native 3D. Since it's a vampire film, a lot of it takes place at night and so in some shots you genuinely cannot see what is happening which is pretty problematic. Not a horrible presentation overall but…
