A remake of the 1985 version, Fright Night with Colin Farrell is a fresh approach to the classic that scared film-goers over 20 years ago.
Starring Anton Yelchin as the kid next door and Colin Farrell as the convincingly terrifying vampire that has a taste for pretty females.
The film makes use of 3D very well. As a vampire bursts into flames, it almost feels like the ash flakes could hit you in the face.
Synopsis is as follows…
Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
