Movie Review: Fright Night

Fright Night

Thank you Nuffnang for the invite to watch Fright Night at the Cathay on 19 Sept 2011. The movie does frighten me off with some scary scenes, (thus it is called Fright Night!) Do note that this is rated as a NC16 Movie (means people must be at least 16 years old to watch this movie) due to coarse language and scary horrifying scenes in the movie.

About Fright Night sypnosis:

This movie is slightly different from the Fright Night filmed in 1985.

Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl, Amy Peterson, in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Edward (Christopher Mintz-Plasse).

But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—and everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice.

After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.

And the adventures between Charlie and Jerry begin after Jerry found out that Charlie knows his secret. Jerry also turned some of Charlie’s friends into vampires too. Charlie has some difficulties to deal with Jerry the vampire and with assistance from Peter Vincent (David Tennant), Charlie overcame the obstacle and able to get rid of Jerry successfully.

What to find out more about how Charlie get rid of Jerry, watch Fright Night at the cinemas!

Here’s the movie trailer for Fright Night!


My thoughts of watching this movie:

It is a bit comical especially on the part where Charlie gets to know Peter Vincent when Peter Vincent starts to remove his clothes, wigs, false moustache and accessories all over the place as well as the way he talks to Charlie. As well as when Edward is trying to tell Charlie about Charlie’s new neighbour.

There are some scenes that are scary and bloody when Jerry bites his victims. Woo…. bloody fangs.

I will give this film 3.75 stars out of 5.
