The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Fright Night (2011)

Starring: Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, David Tennant
Director: Craig Gillespie

A man moves in next door to a single mother and her son. As disappearances in the town pile up the son starts to suspect the neighbor is a vampire.

My Take:
First, the movie comes no where near the greatness of the original. Not in any way.
Second, if you don't compare it the original and judge it on its own merit then the movie is adequate.
I enjoyed the some of the updates the movie had such as the Vegas locale, the suburbia lookalike America, and more explanation of the vampire origins. But missing are the general creepiness and character build.

Rating: In the middle
