LOVEFiLM Review: Fright Night (2011)

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-and everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t 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 revamp of the comedy-horror classic.  – ROTTEN TOMATOES

Fright Night was a film I was half-hearted about seeing when it came out, I dunno why. Maybe it was the vampire themes that has now been way overdone. But I found this surprisingly decent. I hadn’t seen the original as well so I couldn’t compare.

The cast were fun, especially Colin Farrell who I do think is underrated and suits this role perfectly. Visually looks great and the action is top notch.
