decent movie with some creativity and good performances.
somebody in hollywood decided this was a good idea to remake???? omg....
good movie!! good scares, good action and farrell was born to play a horny vampire
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this entertaining thriller. Excellent cast and smart script.
Good movie, with lots of suspense. Ferrall is perfectly cast in this flick.
highly entertaining thriller....farrell is awesome as the vampire!
This movie was a big joke! I found the '80's original much better with better acting and better effects. I was hoping this would live up to the original, but the acting was awful, considering who stared in it. Too Bad! CGI and bad acting wreck it!
I prefer the campy 80's version.
Could have been gorier.
I already knew I was going to like this movie before I even watched it. Great thriller.
lots of silly fun
This re-Vamped (Pun Intended) is a fresh adaptation to the classic 80's original with a marked younger and hipper vibe. Yelchins' portrayal of Charlie is decent and is a likeable character, he fails to portray the true fear that William Ragsdale pulled off in the original. It goes without saying that Colin Farrels Jerry Dandridge is the sexy sanguinarian we would come to expect, however, eye-candy aspect aside, Farrels' portrayal is less suave and more sleaze while compared to the character developed by Chris Sarandon. The film is decent and does hit on several of the same points as the original, but for the seriour genre purists...it will leave a bitter aftertaste... wait for the DVD a
As a guy who was a teenager for the original in the 80's this was a pretty good remake. Lived up to the comedy/horror with more emphasis on the horror..I liked it!
It was an interesting interpretation but I still prefer the original. Overall, it was a decent movie with some great scenes that kept you on the edge of your seat. It's even better in 3-D!
Great slicing and dicing movie! Invite a friend over for dinner.
Decent movie. Kind of silly.
An okay Movie but cannot complain!!
alright...fun and collin is always nice to look at.
Quite scary at times, worth a look
I gladly rated this movie at a four star, I really loved watching this movie.
A very exciting movie.
Good Remake. Farrell is definitely scary.
I think Colin Farrel does a greatjob in this movie and it is better than the original.
A good movie with both scary bits and funny bits. If you like vampires and Colin Farrell, then you should see Fright Night!
A good film that lacked the fluidity of the original.A must for all vampire movie fans.
mediocre, no better than the original
Colin Farrel is an awesome vampire!
Scary as all get out, worth the money
awesome movie, collin farrel makes a great vampire, super creepy guy and yet charming just a way a vampier should be solid remake!
good silly fun.
better than the original, that's for sure
a fun ride
I now sleep with cloves of garlic in my room. This movie scared me straight!
Awesome.Iloved this movie.
In the original, Jerry Dandridge was suave, seductive and even romantic. There was innocence and comedy. In the new Fright Night, there was pervasive animalism: swearing multiple times (the P & F words), Jerry's sniffing the air to locate prey and brutally attacking his victims. Have to admit, I prefer the original; I really missed the dance scene in the club between Chris Sarandon and Amanda Bearse. :)
oh my gosh!! best vamp movie ever thankyou for curing my twilight syndrome hot and hilarious!
Never saw the original, and normally not into horror, least of all vampire fads. But this movie was more fun than scary, and somewhat hilarious. Enjoyed it in 3D, most likely just as good in 2D.
I usually hate remakes with a passion. My wife and I really enjoyed this movie. It still paid respect to the orginal,but went off in its own glory.Thanks Colin for playing a true vampire.Hopefully this can cure people of twilight sickness.
Such a fad, vampire's now next it's guys wearing skirts. Plot was dull, shouldn't waste money just because you think someone is hot, and that in turn makes you see the movie. WASTE!
I was dragged to this movie and never expected to like it....but I did. He was so entertaining. Colin Farrel is one fine vampire and Dr Who's David Tennant stole the show.
A decent remake. I loved the original. Some awesome cameos.
A decent remake. Avoid the 3D at all costs - the film is too dark for the format and the 3D gimmick just doesn't work with dark images.
Good movie, interesting use of 3D with blood, but not scary at all
It was awesome!! They stuck pretty much to the original. Colin makes a very sexy vampire. Even Chris Sarandon from the original makes a cameo!!
