Fright Night (3D)

You can't run from evil when it lives next door.


Fright Night (3D)
A remake of the 1985 film with the same title, with some plot tweaks and the 3D option, which does not work too well given the frequent low-light scenes. A high school senior is trying to fit in with the hip crowd while wooing his girlfriend. A new neighbour moves in next door, who initially seems cool, but has some odd habits. Then the kids at school start disappearing, and our hero begins to realise that the man next door is actually a vampire. He enlists the help of a Las Vegas magician who knows a lot about vampires, while the vampire uses the girlfriend as a way of getting to the our hero. Naturally they all come together for the final showdown. This film is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the 3D version.

104 minutes.

What the Critics say

Box Office
Nick Schager quote iconIt won't ignite the box office, but this teen-targeted effort blends creepiness and comedy with enough chemistry to spark some slow yet steady financial heat.
10
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconAs vampire movies go, Fright Night is a pretty good one.
15
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe remake seems like a lazy cash grab with the 3-D acting as grotesque and gaudy ornamentation.
10
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThe young lovers are Twilight bland next to the power punch of Farrell and Tennant. Director Craig Gillespie is wise to just turn them loose.
13
ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconThe new Fright Night lacks charm and depth. It's strictly for subscribers of Fangoria magazine in that it commits to its R rating and gives gore hounds a lot to sink their teeth into. There was an opportunity here for more, though. A shame.

Tomatometer quote iconIt may not have been necessary to remake the 1985 cult classic, but the new Fright Night benefits from terrific performances by Colin Farrell and David Tennant -- and it's smart, funny, and stylishly gory to boot.
