This Fright Night manages to stay true to the original's tone, while enhancing the material, resulting in a fun little horror flick with a nice, creepy vibe.

While not quite as cheese-filled as its predecessor, the remake maintains the tongue-in-cheek kitsch that made the original work so well.

All in all it's a wild ride, and while the risks are few, the rewards are plenty. If you're looking for a fun time at the movies, don't wait.

This movie is a fairly wellwritten and well-acted remake. On the other hand it is pretty standard horror fare.

Fright Night wonderfully amalgamates a plethora of B-movie horror techniques with a delightful array of modern pop culture references which culminate in a sublimely enjoyable feast of cinematic escapism.

Fright Night is a nice little genre film. I was pleasantly surprised.

If Fright Night is meant to be a send-up of the genre it takes itself too seriously - I can't remember a single decent joke, now I think about it - and if it isn't a send-up then it doesn't take itself seriously enough.

... thrives on humour but takes its vampire business just seriously enough to keep from collapsing into camp.

The producers had the right idea hiring former Buffy the Vampire Slayer scribe Marti Noxon to write the screenplay. Unfortunately, they also hired director Craig Gillespie, who once again shows why he shouldn't be allowed around film equipment.

While it might have reignited interest in the original and its sequel, the new "Fright Night" itself will probably be forgotten 26 years from now when there won't even be a bargain DVD bin at Walmart for us fish it out of.

When you consider how many wretched horror remakes we have to suffer through, doesn't a B+ effort like this one deserve a nice pat on the back?

A 400-year-old vampire leaving a trail of undead corpses in his wake is nowhere near as terrifying as Colin Farrell threatening to bang your Mom.
June 30, 2013
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.
February 15, 2013
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!"
September 28, 2012
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...
June 4, 2012
Just a messy reworking with no grasp on its premise or its concept.
