MOVIE REVIEW: FRIGHT NIGHT
colin farrell is the vampire next door...
Luckily for me, Fright Night falls into the second group. This modern-day remake of the 1985 horror classic follows Las Vegas highschooler Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin), who suspects that his neighbor Jerry (Colin Ferrell) is a vampire after many of his friends mysterious go missing. Yes, the plot is totally ridiculous ("That's a terrible vampire name! Jerry?!" Charley remarks in the trailer), but that's what makes it fun. Starring Imogen Poots as Charley's girlfriend, Toni Collette as his mother, and Superbad's Christopher Mintz-Plasse as his friend who falls victim to Jerry, this horror-slash-humor-flick plays like one big joke that everyone's in on, including the audience.
Featuring lots of fight scenes, a major dose of black magic, more than a few laugh-out-loud moments- oh, and an evil Colin Farrell giving Rob Pattinson a run for his money- this is one scary movie that won't keep you up at night. Which, if you ask us, is a good thing.
Now playing in theaters.
