Im not a great fan of remakes to be honest,I would rather see someone trying to make something fresh than reheating something from the past,under the excuse of'putting a modern slant on a classic story'.So I wasnt expecting much from this film,and to begin with I thought it was going to fall into the catagory of yet another rubbish remake,as it seemed to be heading that way.It just came across as another in a long line of brain dead,teen movie,slasher flicks.But out of the blue,about 25 to 30 minutes in it suddenly got very good.Unlike most modern horror films it made it clear it wasnt going to rely on cgi gore overload,it was going to be creepy,and try and create and atmosphere.Which it did quite well,for the most part,though to be honest it was never scary in the slightest.It also kept its tongue planted very firmly in its cheek,which for this genre is a massive plus,you laughed because you were supposed to,not because what you were watching was that bad.
The major disappointment for me was Colin Farrell as the vampire,now I think Mr Farrell is a truly great actor,I'll watch him in anything to be honest,but his performance in this,for me,lacked any kind of presence.A vampire needs to be menacing,his was kind of flat for the most part,only towards the end of the movie did he,pardon the truly awful pun,get his teeth into the role and become threatening.On the other end of the scale David Tennant steals the entire film,with a stunning performance,as the alcohol soaked,swearing,Las Vegas showman Peter Vincent.He simply takes over every scene he is in,and dominates the screen so much no one else gets a look in.

I have a confession to make, which will probably get me stoned by an angry mob: I never really liked the original "Fright Night."

Now, I'm not saying that I hated it or that it was bad, but its campy style just didn't appeal to me. So perhaps it's not surprising that -- without nostalgia goggles -- I found myself thoroughly enjoying the remake that eventually got made. And a lot of that is due to Colin Farrell's brilliant performance as a laid-back, casually creepy vampire-next-door.

Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) is understandably annoyed when his estranged friend "Evil" Ed Lee (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) claims that his new neighbor Jerry (Farrell) is a vampire. Then Ed vanishes, and Charley discovers -- by breaking into Jerry's basement -- that his new neighbor is indeed a vampire. Unfortunately, Jerry also knows that Charley knows that he's a vampire.

Who can Charlie turn to for help? Why, Doctor Who! No, seriously. David Tennant is in this movie as a leather-clad, foul-mouthed Vegas stage magician who ALSO happens to be a vampire expert. But when Jerry destroys his home and kidnaps his girlfriend Amy (Imogen Poots), Charley decides to take the fight to the vampire.

Colin Farrell is a big part of what makes "Fright Night" a good movie -- he acts mellow and laid-back all the time, often chuckling to himself as if the humans' struggles are just an amusement to him. But he never descends into camp cheese. Even ordinary, un-vampirey dialogue is somehow underlaid with menace when he speaks it ("Catch you later!") -- how often do you see a vampire who can sound scary just asking for beer?

It's also really nice to see vampires that aren't misunderstood sad-eyed woobies who just need love.

A very pleasant surprise, Fright Night is a lot of fun to watch. Very good performances and definately one of the better horror remakes and also one of the best vampire movies in a long while. Charlie Brewster, played by Star Trek's Anton Yelchin is shocked to discover that his new neighbour Jerry played by Colin Farrell is a vampire and enlists the help of a tv presenter played by Doctor Who star David Tennant to defeat him! This is tense, well made, thrilling with good effects. Anton Yelchin is very good as Charlie as is Toni Collette as his mother, Colin Farrell is very menacing as evil vampire Jerry, yes i know it's a rubbish name for a vampire but i didn't name him! And David Tennant steals the show as a famed Russell Brand like tv presenter and vampire hunter. This is good entertainment.

I don't often like remakes, and I tend to like them even less when I hold the original in high regard. There are exceptions, however - such as Cape Fear - and Fright Night's upgrade to this stylish, scary stake-fest is easily another. And I probably would have given it a look sooner if I'd been told that David Tennant was in the cast!

So after Stephenie Meyer's sparklefest we're all bored of vampires, right? Well, no. Not when they're done right. True Blood has been reminding us for years that vampires can be sexy *and* scary, and the more recent (and ridiculously good) The Strain has propelled Stoker's original tale into a modern day world where vampirism is a contagion, and a bloody, destructive one at that. Fright Night stands somewhere in the middle - although Colin Farrell in the lead role might make you groan and think 'oh no, he's going to be another smoldering leather pants wearing Fabio...yawn' I can assure you that he's perfectly cast and absolutely terrifying as Jerry, the dark and brutal vampire next door who takes offense when a neighborhood kid starts poking around in his business. Although this is billed as a comedy horror like the original, this version is genuinely thrilling, in part because of the superbly gorgeous cinematography and the tense soundtrack, and has skilfully amped up the gore-o-meter without ever seeing gratuitous. Thank special effects guy Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) for that. I don't think it could squeeze into the 'comedy' genre at all if David Tennant wasn't present, getting the best one-liners, stealing every scene he's in and chewing the hell out of the scenery. I love that man.
