Fright Night (2011) Review:
This remake of the 1985’s classic Fright Night is pretty similar to the original and, most importantly, retains the things that made the success of its predecessor: the great story, the fun atmosphere and lots of horror/action.
There are, of course, a few changes but most of them are quite clever. The storyline has not been modified but simply fleshed out a little. Some of the weak elements of the original movie, such as the ending, were re-thought and are replaced with brilliant new scenes.
The acting, which was already excellent in the original, is outstanding here. Colin Farrell’s performance as the vampire is perfect, combining strength, fun, and class. Others great actors such as Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salvation, Star Trek), Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, The Dead Girl) as the mum, the lovely Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later) or again Christopher Mintz (SuperBad, Kick-Ass).
Maybe one thing that will divide people are the special effects. I tend to dislike CGI if they are not perfect, and obviously, they are almost never perfect, including here. I mean, the action scenes look good, but I liked the looks of the vampires better in the original Fright Night.
Anyway, this remake is definitely worthy of the original. Some, like me, might even consider it slightly better (that’s my own personal opinion though), but I bet that those who grew up in the ’80s will disagree! In any case, Fright Night (2011) is one that you see before judging.
