I loved this remake! It stands up to the original very well. Both are great films and this will become a cult classic like the original.
Another week, another remake.
Saw this last night thanks to this site. Loved it! A lot of fun. Farrell is great
I approach remakes of classic horror films with a degree of caution. However, I try to give the remake a fair chance. In the case of the 2004 Dawn Of The Dead, I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. In the case of the 2011 Fright Night, it's a decent attempt to remake the 1985 classic - one of my favourite horror films. Colin Farrell was a smart choice to play Jerry and Imogen Poots continues to show great potential. However, I was disappointed with what was done with the Peter Vincent character. Perhaps the film-makers knew that they couldn't top Roddy McDowall's performance in the original, so they did a complete 180 on the character instead. The 3D is OK, but the frequent darkness of the film renders it a bit muted. All in all, worth watching but it won't be joining the original in my film collection.
An easy 1hr 40 mins or so nothing great nothing terrible, Farrell is ok Tennant steals the show, Great little cameo from Chris Sarandon, dont bother with the 3D as its another conversion, all in all not bad.
It was ok and a bit of a laugh at times. Colin Farrell was a bit rubbish but thought David Tennant worked well.
3D ruined it for me, Farrell proves he is a versatile actor.. the darkness of film was frustrating and in places veeeery slow, Tennant class... all in all 3 stars and an afternoon cinema flick, if its raining.
