Fright Night is a remake of the movie of the same name from 1985. A vampire moves into the neighborhood and people start disappearing. This time around Colin Farrell is the vampire and Anton Yelchin plays the kid next door who has figured out who his neighbor really is. Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant, Imogen Poots, and Toni Collette are in on the fun as well.
“Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all–he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right– yet no one, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), seems to notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.”
Fright Night is in theatres August 19, 2011.
