Entertaining remake of the 1985 vampire flick of the same name. Young up-and-comer Anton Yelchin takes the lead as high-school student Charley Brewster who, after a series of strange goings on, including the disapearances of several classmates, becomes convinced that his new neighbour is a creature of the night. That neighbour just happens to be Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell) and soon Charley has a fight on his hands to stop Jerry from charming his way into his mum's affections and making a meal of her. This is pretty standard fare, bu the cast seem to be enjoying themselves and the script provides enough wit to keep viewers happy. It isn't particularly scary though - the most menacing thing in it is the wig worn by former Dr Who David Tennant, who is superb as a Las Vegas magician. Also starring Toni Collette and Imogen Poots. 4/5. d;-)
Fright Night is a refreshing change from the normal vampire movies
no one person believes in vampires especialy about the guy next door. The effects are brilliant and continuety is at its best.
David Tennant puts the five star into the film. Im sure it will make you jump gasp and laugh. A very enjoyable film.
Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell are brilliant together. Some beautiful girls, and dumb guys make the film funny. The sound track is brilliant, great music worth every penny; entertainment at its best.
Excellent remake of the 80's original. Not normally a big fan of re-makes but this gets it spot on, keeping the humour of the original but with the advantage of modern techniques to give it a really good horror look and feel. The casting is superb, Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette and Imogen Poots all outstanding but David Tennant steals the show with a great performance, at first he's unrecognisable. A very strong horror film with plenty of good one liners - it wont disappoint. Enjoy
I watched this last night, and from start to finish a very enjoyable film! I loved the original one and kept comparing it to it, they did a fantastic job, and Colin Farrell is perfect for the part!! Watch out for Chris Sarandons cameo when he crashes into the back of the car!!
This movie is actually quite a gem of horror vampire remake, I was not expecting much of this movie but was pleasantly surprised to find it is brilliant, the story is quite different from the original in certain ways but still keeps most similarities, its a fun story thats well paced and has plenty of good action and very good performances from Colin Farell and David Tennant, its not mega gory or anything but does have its dose of blood and cool vampire effects, worth checking out for sure, great movie!!
