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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Inept plotting, a lack of pacing, and a criminal neglect of its primary antagonist are a few of the nails that seal the lid on director Craig Gillespie's wayward remake of Tom Holland's original 1985 "Fright Night."

Tedious, scareless, worthless.

Not for a minute is Fright Night either funny or scary. That's not too good in a comedy horror film.

There should have been more scenes with the actors under Farrell's magnetic spell before the chase is on. Fright Night even manages to underwhelm in the climax.
September 5, 2011
The original's homoerotic aspect has been dropped, the special effects are far more elaborate and the action infinitely more violent.
September 2, 2011
Even Platinum Dunes make better remakes than this.
August 31, 2011
A boring revamp, with dull 3D effects, insipid teenage protagonists and only sporadically scary outbursts of neck-biting, crucifix-wielding and staking through the heart.

Farrell's the man you warned your Mother about.
