    Having spent the afternoon watching a dismal, pretentious indie drama that made me want to claw my eyes out with boredom and annoyance (which, unfortunately, I'm not allowed to vent about at the minute), I was in dire need of an antidote.

    I didn't see this when it came out but remember hearing vaguely positive things about it and it looked like it could be a big dumb horror romp, which was exactly what I wanted.

    Sadly not. It just…

    i saw this in the cinema when it came out in 2011 because colin farrell looked hot in the trailer and i wanted to see that ass IN 3D goddamnit

    it's now 2016 and that's still the only reason why i'm rewatching it... charismatic bastard... who does he think he is with his vests and his open shirts

    all farrell-ness aside, it's actually a pretty funny movie tbf

    I wish I was lying when I say this is my favorite kind of movie. Also Colin Farrell can bend me over a table any day.

    The ONLY good reason to watch this is to see David Tennant swear.

    Doesn't really add anything to the original, but I've seen far worse horror remakes in my time.

    I've never seen the originals but I've seen the sequel/remake Fright Night 2: The New Blood, so I'm working my way through these in reverse apparently.

    The plot is basically the lifetime movie of the week plot of "weirdo moves in next door" only this time said weirdo is a vampire slowly killing his way through the neighbourhood. Thankfully his first victim is the awful Christopher Mintz-Plasse who I find incredibly annoying so it earns marks for giving him a…

    There have been a lot of poor and unnecessary horror remakes over the last decade and it seems Hollywood is now having to delve into the more obscure realms of camp 1980s horror-comedy. Fright Night is the remake of the 1985 film and is directed by Craig Gillespie starring Anton Yelchin and David Tennant(Doctor Who) along with Colin Farrell(In Bruges) as the ancient vampire next door causing chaos in the small Nevada town.

    Charley Brewster (Yelchin) is a small town…

    Enjoyable, silly fun. Farrell and Collette great, David Tennant a stand out.

    Remake/update of the '80s vampire flick follows the same plot as the original - dorky teenager thinks a vampire is living next door, enlists a "vampire hunter" to help him destroy it - but it tweaks & changes things just enough to make it stand on its own and worth a watch. Colin Farrell is a cool vamp and the guy who plays "Peter Vincent" in this one is a hoot.

    Don't blink, or you'll miss the brief cameo by Chris Sarandon, who was the vampire in the original movie!

    One of the better remakes, combining actual humor with an intriguing reinterpretation of the original story.
