VIDEO (3D):

Fright Night arrives on blu-ray with MVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. Fright Night was planned with 3D in mind and shot mostly in 3D, with a few segments converted from the 2-D elements in post-production by Sassoon Film Design. Special stereoscopic rigs were used to achieve the special 3-D effects, wherein the 3-D space was optimized within the confines of the stylized darkness. Stereographer Max Penner said of their techniques, “I control how deep the 3-D space is and where it is placed in relation to the screen plane. This is achieved by using a 3-D beam splitter rig that is a combination of two cameras and/or two sensors and two matched sets of optics that work synchronous and view images from two different points, very much like human eyes.” While mostly focused on the depth dimension behind the screen, as in positive parallax, appropriately, the filmmakers effectively use the negative parallax dimension to push blood, guts, and other body parts, and burning ashes, out through the screen to invite horrific excitement. Depth and dimension are nicely rendered to create an eerie feeling. Fleshtones appear naturally rendered. Black levels are deep and solid, and shadow delineation is revealing, with a good display device, operating in a darkened environment. Fright Night succeeds in its effort to utilize all aspects of 3-D technology, with the challenge of filming dimly lit scenes, for an engaging visual dimensional experience. (4/5)

AUDIO:

The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1-channel soundtrack is terrific, with a dynamic soundfield presence embellished with effective atmospherics and sound effects. Such a superb mix really keeps the listening space engaged. Spurious effects are delivered excellently around the room, adding to the intrigue and disquietude of the vampire's haunt. The orchestral music score is densely orchestrated with a wide and deep soundstage that extends forcefully into the surrounds. Dialogue sounds nicely integrated spatially. This is a well-executed soundtrack that delivers a creepy immersive experience. (5/5)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

The blu-ray 3D release of Fright Night presents a live action 3D title natively filmed in 3D. It definitely has pop, with some astonishingly powerful moments, It also exhibits a stylistically dark ambiance. To see the details requires a completely dark room and your TV with good native contrasts. Although I have not watched the original Roddy McDowall/Chris Sarandon film from 1985, I can say that this 2011 remake of the cult classic is definitely watchable, enjoyable, and somewhat fun. It's certainly a film that will keep viewers guessing, with a very different structure that doesn't follow the cliche plot points ritually found in vampire movies. The 3D effects are well done. This 3D set is recommended.
