Storyline Heading
Senior Charley Brewster finally has it all, he's running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In face, he's so cool he's even dissing his best friend Ed. But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but here's something not quite right--yet no one, including Charley's mom, seems to notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charley comes to an unmistakable conclusion; Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he's telling the truth, Charley has to find a way to get rig of the monster himself.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy (Dark) Horror - This is a violent, bloody remake of the 1985 horror film of the same name. Older teens and young adult males are the target audience. Fans of stars Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell will have plenty to enjoy though Toni Collette's screen time is limited. Gory violence and constant language make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Fright Night; the remake seems like a lazy cash grab with the 3-D acting as grotesque and gaudy ornamentation. Any special qualities one could ascribe to the 1985 movie have been lost in translation.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The movie has competent acting by the principals, who make an effort to surpass the generic requirements of their characters.

USA Today Full Review
Good Fright is clearly Hollywood summer fare. Slick and driven by a bass-heavy score, the film embraces clichés by the cape-ful.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good 'Fright Night' is different. It stands apart from the rehash pack by accomplishing something rival remakes rarely do: It improves on the premise it has been handed, producing a modernized version of a decades-old story that's superior to its predecessor in virtually every aspect.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 10 moviegoers:
A very disappointing weekend at the movies for collecting reviews. For some reason there just weren't very many people seeing movies, so we weren't able to collect very many reviews.
TEENS:The two males loved "Fright Night."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The one male and one female loved it.
ADULTS:One male rated it average and the other one only rated it below average. The females enjoyed it more. Two of them truly enjoyed it. Another rated it average and another rated it below average.
