Fright Night (2011)





PITCH

"Hey, guy. You've been watching me. I've been watching you. Your mom. There's a kind of neglect. Gives off a kind of scent. And your girl? She is ripe. It's on you to look out for them because there are a lot of bad people out there, Charlie. "



       Story.  I was a scary cat when I was little.  Clowns, mascots, dogs, cats, puppets, the whole month of October. [I can release this to my fan base because I feel confident now that I told a friend about my previous condition :)].  We [my family] lived in Chicago, Illinois at the time of the original Fright Night release...  My older sister, being a horror movie fan, just HAD to see this flick but she couldn't because she was babysitting me.... What to do?  We sneaked into the Water Tower building theater and I saw what would be coined as my very first or one of my first horror movies [ It's between this one and  a movie called LifeForce, I can't remember, this was a loooong time ago].  Needless to say that I spent a great deal of the movie covering my face with my hands... This time it was different.


     Director Craig Gillespie did a fine job keeping the essence of the first one and making the situation of a vampire moving in next door a paralyzing situation.  He also kept the balance of horror to comedy at the "just-right" ratio to get a few laughs out of us while knowingly tensing up for the next surprise.




Collin Farrell makes a great vampire!


Anton Yelchin is a pretty good actor.  Seeing him outside his Star Trek uniform was a bit awkward at first.  Gradually we see Pavel Chekov dissolves into "Charlie" as the movie gets underway.




    Great way to reintroduce a cult classic to another generation. B+!   This movie is definitely worth watching.
