Quite a decent teen horror movie. Maybe it lacks some jokes and the story, as always, is quite stereotypical, but the formula works well.
Yelchin, Farrel, Tennant and Poots make a good team.
I have to admit that I have not seen the original but from this version of Fright Night I must say that I do not understand all the fuss and why it has become somewhat of a cult classic. I give 6 stars out of 10 and that is quite frankly just barely. If someone had told me that this was a high-budget TV-movie I would not have been very surprised. Maybe it felt more fresh in 1985 when the original came out.
The first part of the movie is actually a bit boring. However, after the vampire finally reveals himself so that Charlie’s girlfriend and mother starts to believe him things starts to pick up pace a bit. Unfortunately a lot of the movie is still somewhat mediocre. There are the usual frustrating moments, which Hollywood seems to believe must be in every movie, where Charlie just stupidly stands and stares wasting time, drops his weapon etc. etc.
The special effects are okayish but never great. The “vampire hunter” Peter Vincent is just a jerk most of the time until the very end when he shapes up a bit.
It is a decent enough evening diversion but as I wrote, as far as I am concerned, it gets an “okay” but just barely.
Damn good vampire fun…..
Can a horror remake actually be a good for a change? I mean, how many classic horror flicks does Hollywood have to crap on until they finally give up? “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, “Amityville Horror”, “Nightmare on Elm St.”, “Friday the 13th”, “House of Wax”…….all of these films are examples of why i sometimes HATE Hollywood.
Finally……a horror remake that’s WORTH seeing. I must admit, i had some pretty low expectations walking into this, and it did way more than prove me wrong. Initially i thought they were going to make this a straight ‘B’ movie by incorporating tons of humor with their gore, which would have been fine with me, seeing that i love the genre’. But this movie was more fun than funny. Don’t get me wrong, there are some sequences that are funny, but it had more of that ‘drive-in’ appeal to it’s horror. And i loved every bit of it.
It’s story is pretty basic, and somewhat cliché’. I mean come on, a vampire living next door. But the weird thing is, it didn’t come off as cliché’. And i think the biggest contribution to that was the pace of the film. Once you get past the first 10 to 15 minutes of the film, which are kind of dull, the movie quickly begins to morph into a fast paced gore fest. And now looking back on it……if it were not rated R, then this movie would have been stupid, and it would’ve fit in with every other crummy horror remake.
But the aspect that i appreciated the most was the writing. For once, they didn’t alter any rules to make their film different. They stuck with what already works, and left it up to the actors to make these vampire rules entertaining. And Collin Farrell did just that.
Bottom Line…..Of all the horror movies that come out this year, this will probably be the one you will have the most fun at. It’s funny, it’s somewhat scary, but most of all, it’s pretty damn entertaining. It’s one of those movies i would’ve loved to of seen at the drive-in. If your tired of all this ‘Twilight’ crap, which they happen to mention in the movie itself, then this is really a breathe of fresh air to all the TRUE vampire fans.
One of the few horror remakes that is actually on par with its original…
If you liked 1985s Fright Night, you’re in for a treat. This remake takes notes from the original, loosens the tongue from cheek a bit, and gets the ball rolling quick. Good nods (apples), great acting (Farrell surprised me), and cool FX without overdoing the gore factor. Peter Vincent is still a coward pulled into a realm he doesn’t want to believe in, Mom is still clueless, The loner friend is still a prat, and the damsel is still pretty; but all else is new and exciting. For laughs and suspense, this holds up. Somehow there needs to be 10 lines of text, so… I liked seeing Yelchin is something other than Star Trek. I’ll be sure to watch Huff now as well. Toni Collette was just about unrecognizable since I saw her in Sixth Sense and Muriel’s Wedding, but her acting is still great. Enjoy!
