Fright Night Movie Review: Frighteningly Fun

by at . Comments

The opening moments of Fright Night set the film’s tone. Like the original 1985 film, Fright Night features a vampire as its protagonist and puts him front and center. Since the first film premiered, vampires -- courtesy of Twilight and The Vampire Diaries -- are more drawn to love voraciously than they are vicious. Not so in the world of Fright Night, and as embodied by Colin Farrell, the fanged foes to mankind possess an utter disdain for humans that manifests itself in an almost perpetual people-killing modus operandi.
