  • 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. show more

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

  • Fright is way too quick on its feet to be slowed by clichés. David Tennant seizes McDowall's role as Peter Vincent, now a Criss Angel-style clown vampire slayer. Christopher Mintz-Plasse was born to play a high school nerd. show more

    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....
