This is a tough movie to sell to you because it has two big problems:
1.) It’s a remake. Counterpoint: While remakes are often thoughtless cash grabs, Fright Night has the benefit of being written by Marti Noxon who wrote several episodes of Buffy. So the script is clever, well-rounded, and occasionally surprising.
2.) It was transferred into 3D. Counterpoint: Okay, yeah that sucks. The film is 10x as dark as necessary because of the shitty digital transfer. A bunch of splatter stuff flies at the screen, but it’s campy, so at least they aren’t trying to be “cool” about it. Just turn your TV brightness up and watch it after sundown.
Those two things aside, this movie is fun…
