This movie was disappointing, sure Colin is sexy, but not at all seductive. The original Fright Night was very seductive , sexy and fun. I'm glad that I waited for it to be on Showtime!

I'm not sure why would people give 5 stars for a movie like this...oh well, guess different people have different taste in movies. I mean it wasn't the worst movie I've seen but it certain doesn't deserve 4 or 5 stars. It's just one of those movie you watch to kill time. It has very predictable story line. I feel bad for Colin Farrell that he now has to make a movie like this....

I loved them both. They were cool and the people in them also. Would they remake part two?

Very impressed with the updated story. Not completely a redo of the old one.. has some new bits to the plot. Colin Farrell is sexy, subtle, scary. Like I think a vampire would be-- no messin around.... Why do they ALWAYS have the vampire making a huge bloody mess-- you do NOT waste the precious fluid ... hehhehheh

It stands apart from the rehash pack by accomplishing something rival remakes rarely do: It improves on the premise it has been handed, producing a modernized version of a decades-old story that's superior to its predecessor in virtually every aspect. Full Review

The old "Fright Night" was both self-aware and effectively scary, and if this one seems to prefer gruesome digital effects to old-fashioned bump-in-the-night spookiness, it still succeeds in keeping the audience both tickled and anxious. Full Review

You'll need a taste for nostalgia to really appreciate Fright Night, which knowingly blends Eighties cheese with Nineties snark - a combination that works better than it sounds. Full Review

Fright Night isn't quite a classic vampire movie, but it's refreshingly straightforward and self-deprecating. Full Review

Menace and mirth can cancel each other out. But the combo clicked in 1985's Fright Night (banish the 1988 sequel), and it clicks again in this frisky 3D remake. Full Review
