This creepy and well-made drama offers up a few light-hearted moments to go along with its scares.

Fright Night is an easily digested horror that doesn't rise above being just decent.

The script by TV writer-producer Marti Noxon is so unimaginative that people are actually called "douchebag!" in four different scenes.

Can a 3D horror movie be a thing of beauty? In the case of this gorgeously shot remake, the answer is "Yes!"

Remake or not, if you're going to make a vampire movie in 2011, you'd better at least try to do something original. Something. Anything.

Overall, this is an improvement over the 1985 version of the film, but there are still some issues with the story that needed to be worked out.

...just another in a long line of needless horror remakes...

Just a messy reworking with no grasp on its premise or its concept.

IGN DVD

Fright Night has some rough patches, but the film is entertaining through-and-through, largely thanks to Colin Farrell's predatory performance.

Groucho Reviews

While it's unspooling, it has enough visual snap, narrative tension, and humor for a satisfying 'drive-in movie' diversion. [3D Blu-ray]

It's not that the Fright Night remake is that bad. It's just not that good.

... A tight little horror movie, well staged and acted, and with a fair amount of comedy sprinkled among the scares.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

Just because it's more than 25 years old doesn't mean a movie needs to be remade. The 1985 movie 'Fright Night' is still enjoyable and quite entertaining. Now here's an above-average remake that adds a few changes, along with 3-D.

A cast limited in number but overflowing in healthy cell count and talent makes for a superior bloodfest here.

Another week, another remake of a 1980s flick! As someone once said it is as if Hollywood is deciding which movies to make by flipping through their DVD collection!

Be it in two dimensions or three, Fright Night is a bloody bucket-load of fun.

Film Experience

The movie peaks far too early in its battle of wills over property lines but a good time at the movies is as infectious as vampirism, and more highly recommended.

The Age (Australia)

Fright Night 3D qualifies as a successful entry in a tricky genre - blending flip humour and emotional intensity in a way that feels true after its fashion to the facts of teenage life.

Takes inspiration from the 1985 film but runs its own race with a few nice tweaks.
