More Info:
  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    Farrell looks like he's having the time of his 400-year-old life.

  • Keith Staskiewicz

    It ends up getting a surprising number of things right.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Sean OConnell

    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.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Fright Night isn't quite a classic vampire movie, but it's refreshingly straightforward and self-deprecating.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Fright is way too quick on its feet to be slowed by clichés. David Tennant seizes McDowall's role as Peter Vincent, now a Criss Angel-style clown vampire slayer. Christopher Mintz-Plasse was born to play a high school nerd.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    It honors the original throughout, including a memorable nightclub scene and a surprise cameo that's a huge crowd-pleaser, while at the same time giving updates to make it fresher and better than ever.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Fright Night joins "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" as proof that you actually can do this sort of thing correctly.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The remake isn't openly nostalgic. In a sense, this is another sexy vampire movie. But Farrell does something special with the sexuality: It's simultaneously omnivorous, dangerous, and a hoot.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Plenty gory, but graced by a jovial sense of humor and an enjoyably guts-centric use of 3-D.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    The film's greatest pleasures come from Noxon's script - which puts the sexual chaos created by Farrell's attractive bloodsucker front and center - and from the performances.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    As in the earlier film, this one dances always at the edge of comedy. It especially has fun with the Rules of Vampire Behavior.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Fright Night can also boast of having the best vampire-villain in ages. The bushy-browed Colin Farrell was BORN to wear fangs.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    A steady supply of spiky humor and a game cast keep this cooking most of the way, though the pacing could have been tighter and the film seems as if it's about to end two or three times before it actually does.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The old "Fright Night" was both self-aware and effectively scary, and if this one seems to prefer gruesome digital effects to old-fashioned bump-in-the-night spookiness, it still succeeds in keeping the audience both tickled and anxious.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    This remake is good fun, aided in no small degree by Colin Farrell's strutting, dead-eyed performance as the bloodsucker.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's a somewhat goofy movie that also manages some real scares. Best of all, it makes excellent use of an element of vampire stories effective since Count Dracula confronted Van Helsing in Bram Stoker's novel: I know that you know, and I also know there is nothing you can do about it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Michelle Orange

    Fright Night glides into its first climax with some funny touches but without building much structure or suspense.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The new version is mildly entertaining with some fun performances.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    With the exception of a few stakes and crosses jumping from the screen, some bloody sprays here and there, and one creepy, claustrophobic car ride, the 3-D glasses are a hindrance, not an enhancement.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Menace and mirth can cancel each other out. But the combo clicked in 1985's Fright Night (banish the 1988 sequel), and it clicks again in this frisky 3D remake.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    One of the minor triumphs of this Fright Night remake is Farrell's coolly assured performance, a cocksure spectacle of masculine virility far more intimidating to his character's victims, male and female alike, than the razor-sharp fangs Jerry uses to munch on human neck meat.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    Funny and scary - and sometimes both at once - it lives up to the original, even if it fails to surpass it.

    Empire Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    With a similar brand of self-aware playfulness, retains its predecessor's sturdy narrative foundation.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    You'll need a taste for nostalgia to really appreciate Fright Night, which knowingly blends Eighties cheese with Nineties snark - a combination that works better than it sounds.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Thankfully, the 3-D is surprisingly well-used, not just for arterial spray but to accentuate the constraints of the mega-bland, housing-bubble architecture of the characters' neighborhood. That anonymity is the real horror show.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    While this nouveau Fright Night does a reasonable job of maintaining the fun spirit of the original film, between the blood splatters and vamp stakings, it never builds on what the original had to offer -- and thus never quite makes a convincing case for its own existence.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Fans of the irritatingly limp and relatively toothless Twilight series may actually find their tormented inner selves fondled to exquisite, precoital perfection with this slick and gleeful adaptation of the classic Eighties vampire-next-door flick.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    There's an irrelevance to the movie that the filmmakers, hard as they try, can't quite shake - something awfully square about the picture: It would have played a lot better a decade ago.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Aside from some cosmetic changes, little of what this Fright Night offers elevates it above the classification of "unnecessary."

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Feeble comic one-liners and slow pacing combine for a routine fangfest in this remake of the 1985 film.
