‘1 Man 365 Films 365 Days’ – Day 250


#217 / 365 – ‘Fright Night’ 3D – 106 mins
Cinema Challenge #85 / 115

Charlie Brewster’s (Anton Yelchin) beginning his senior year of high school and things are finally falling into place: he’s grown a few inches, gained a few pounds and he’s now dating the most coveted girl in school. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a cool guy, but beneath the surface, there’s something off about him – something intimidating. And after observing some very strange activity along with the mysterious disappearance of his best friend, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire who’s preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone of what he knows, Charlie is going to have to come face to face with the monster himself.

One of the great things about Fright Night is the casting is spot on. Colin Farrell is scarily funny as the menacingly bloodsucker and has huge fun within the role in an effortlessly cool way. David Tennant, borrowing a text-book look straight from Russell Brand, is fun as the nervy Las Vegas illusionist. Christopher Mintz-Plasse plays to great effect another cool nerd in angry Ed. Anton Yelchin puts in a fairly solid lead performance as Charlie.

Fright Night is a movie that deals itself some nice cards, inside a nice atmospheric setting to make it a fun and enjoyable vampire flick with a some great thrills along the way.

  1. This was definitely better then I expected (having seen epic movie and other parody’s), well worth the watch and will be watching out for the DVD. David Tennant was pretty incredible with his role.
