Product Description

Product Description

Meet the sexy new neighbour, Jerry Dandrige (Colin Farrell). He’s dangerously charming – and utterly lethal. That's because he just happens to be a vampire, and out for blood…buckets of it. After high school senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) makes the connection between Jerry’s suspicious activity and a steadily rising body count, he vows to end the reign of terror next door. But he can’t do it alone. His only hope is Las Vegas magician / vampire-slayer Peter Vincent (David Tennant). Together, this unlikely duo set out to end Jerry's evil rampage. But Jerry is a ruthless, relentless killer, and he’s not going down without a fight. Get set to sink your teeth into this thrilling re-vamp of the terrifying horror classic. Featuring a star-studded cast and crawling with bonus, Fright Night will captivate you from the very first bite!

From Amazon.co.uk

Arriving amid a flurry of dopey sequels and dudes with power tools, 1985's Fright Night came as a welcome blast of fetid air for the horror genre: an affectionate spoof of classic monster movies that also managed to deliver some genuine scares, as well as a pair of top-notch performances by Chris Sarandon and Roddy McDowall. The 2011 revamp (apologies for the pun) can't boast the same novelty factor, but it does a surprisingly good job at speaking for itself, just the same. Director Craig Gillespie's film follows the same basic blueprint as the original--high-school kid (Anton Yelchin) suspects that his next-door neighbor (Colin Farrell) may be a Creature of the Night, enlists celebrity (David Tennant) for help--but with a number of smart alterations, particularly the decision to move the setting to the desolate outskirts of Vegas, where unexplained disappearances and nocturnal lifestyles are par for the course. (Kudos to cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe, who gives the nighttime scenes a musty, tangible vibe.) Writer Marti Noxon, a Buffy vet, keeps the dialogue light, while also delivering some sharp insights about the state of today's Twilight-savvy teen. (In perhaps the biggest switch from the original, the barely veiled gay subtext has been replaced with a cautionary tale about outgrowing your friends.) On the debit side, Gillespie and Co. can't always replicate their source material's atomic-clock timing, with a few promising scares undone by miscued comic relief. Still, a horror movie ultimately lives or dies by its villain, and Farrell delivers a beaut, as a hilariously type-A vampire who'd rather chug a beer than pose languorously. At a time when the undead are notable mainly for their romanticism and supernatural hair-care prowess, Fright Night does its best to bring the fangs back into the equation. --Andrew Wright

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.

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 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.

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.
