Preview screening of Fright Night

Thanks Sweetie for inviting me to join the Nuffnang bloggers' gathering @ The Cathay for the preview screening of 'Fright Night'...

'Fright Night' is a 3D comedy horror vampire film. It is a remake of the 1985 film of the same name. Reviews on the internet has generally been positive, so I went into the movie with high expectations.

Teenager Charlie Brewster (played by Anton Yelchin) takes notice of the strange disappearances of his friends eversince the arrival of his new neighbour - Jerry (starring Colin Farrell). Upon closer inspection, he soon discovers that the new neighbour has a blood-thirsty habit. Trying to convince everybody around him, the pure and evil battle soon begins.

The remake starts out well, all thanks to Farrell's acting skills, as he brings out a sense of menace and cocky masculinity to his role. However, the film loses the irony elements of the saving grace of the original. The casts apart from Colin Farrell have no chemistry and they deliver their lines flatly.

2.5/5

This remake - 'Fright Night 2011' is proves to a disappointment, as there are only a few chills and thrills and they are not remotely scary. A pretty bad frightfully movie-going experience, but at least this film handles well by entertaining the movie-goers with some laughs.

The premiere date is on the 22 September 2011.
