Fright Night - Movie Review

I have to admit it, I have a Vampire addiction. It's a secret one, and started long ago.

Fright Night is a remake of a Summer 1985 classic cult flick that I LOVED (okay, movie choices back when I was a teen was limited). It was one of these vampire flicks I'd watch over and over again.

Well, Hollywood decided to remake it ... and,

Here's the BLURB from IMDb:
A teenager suspects that his new neighbor is a vampire. (yep, that's all they said)


Just so you know, I didn't have high expectations here and...well, the movie was just okay. It was however, an improvement over it's predecessor. This version had a twist like the movie Disturbia where the villain was handsome and a little more sadistic than the goofy vamp that was in the first flick. Not to mention this one had much better special effects. Charlie - got to love him, accidentally sees his neighbor, who is a vampire, bite a women. Then a dead body is found. This leads to his seemingly psychotic obsession with his neighbor being a vamp. And it all heats up from there. No much gore, but a lot of blood and blown up bodies. Teens would think it is just okay since kids nowadays like more brutal horror flicks. But my teen son gave it a 3 our of 5 fangs. I however, give it only 2 fangs out of 5.

Aw, onlyl 2 fangs. :) I can't say I'm all that into vampires, though I've read the House of Night Series (the newest book is coming out in November, and I will have to own it), and I've read a few others that pique my interest here and there. I have about zero interest, however, in vampire movies, I'm sorry to say. But I enjoy reading about your addiction!

I think I'll pass on this one. Doesn't really sound that exciting to me and only 2 fangs doesn't convince me otherwise. Thanks, LM.
