So, I love the original Fright Night movie with Chris Sarandon and was sceptical going into watch the re-make the other day. To my immense pleasure I ended up really enjoying this re-imagining and Colin Farrell was awesome as Jerry Dandrige. The premise is the same, but the movie takes a slightly different direction in the storyline without deviating so much that it looses the essence of the original. Best of all, they kept with the classic vampire myth and rules, not the modernised, secular, garbage version that completely dilutes them as a monster.
The only negative that really bugged me was the blatant product placement. Either I’ve caught onto advertising tricks more as I’ve gotten older or they’re just not trying as hard anymore.
