4.0 out of 5 stars Fright Night...A Remake That Actually Works. 2 Dec 2011
By The Neon Weasel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Fright Night! 8 Sep 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Come In 6 Jan 2013
By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Fright Night is an excellent remake of an old horror-comedy classic. Despite a line of black humour the film sticks to its horror guns with plenty of creaking, gasping, hiding, running and screaming. The effects are excellent and the cast are having a great time; Colin Farrell being excellent as the Great White Vampire. David Tennant brings a nice addition to our star-crossed lovers and the mother. The supernatural appears seamlessly in the midst of the mundane. If only serious horror films could keep up this level.

4.0 out of 5 stars A four-star 'three-star' movie 19 Dec 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Thematically less complex than the original Fright Night (if such a thing is even possible) and obviously engineered for cheap 3D thrills, but slick, sexy and played with obvious relish: everyone looks like they're having fun.
