Fright Night 2011

Fright Night

Critics Consensus

It may not have been necessary to remake the 1985 cult classic, but the new Fright Night benefits from terrific performances by Colin Farrell and David Tennant -- and it's smart, funny, and stylishly gory to boot.

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

    Really stylish from start to finish, but not so that it ever borders on art-house. The story is Lost Boys meets Disturbia and is held together by the film's performances, particularly from the brave casting choice of David Tennant as a narcissistic celebrity vampire slayer which actually works out rather well towards the middle of the film - at first its hard to accept Tennant in the role. Farrell is on peak form as the film's heartbreaker and bloodsucker antagonist.

    I was hesitant to watch it at first, now I'm happy that I've seen it. It's old school fun in new packaging, a pretty neat packaging at that. Don't take it too seriously and it will entertain you. Super turns by Yelchin and of course Farrel.

    Why was this a dud at the box office? Lack of promotions? Wrong release date? Oh boy, one thing is clear though, Fright Night was a 'fun' movie! - which is lacking from nowadays i-take-myself-too-seriously horror movies. The movie offers a light plot accompanied with great cast such as Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz, Toni Collete and the breathtakingly beautiful, Imogen Poots as the main character's girlfriend. Throughout the movie, I can't help but get the 'campy' 90's horror movies feels mixes with Buffy The Vampire Slayer episodes. I frickin love this movie! 8/10.
