Movie Review: So I was flat out told that I had to get the new Fright Night. I am glad that I listened, it was awesome. IMDB.com Post
This movie was updated brilliantly for the new millennium. Yes it was
scary but it had just enough humor that it wasn't too intense. So lets
start at the beginning shall we. What do you do when your new neighbor
turns out to be a Vampire? Stake him of course, but wait I'm getting ahead of myself.
I know this is the part where I'm supposed to rip on the movie, however
I really have no issues with this movie. The music was superbly done,
special effects were used appropriately and the scenes were shot
I particularly like one of the scenes at the
beginning of the movie where this kid is hiding under the bed from the
Vampire. He grabs a gun but it has a gun lock on it. He reaches next
to him to his dead father's pocket to get the keys. As he turns away
the camera under the bed shows his father being pulled away. He then
turns to see him gone, pause a moment, then, well you are going to have
to watch it to see how the scene ends.
Needless to say it was
very well written and was true to the original while adding more modern
twists. I really wanted to get the original as well however it was out
at the video store.
Even if you don't typically like scary
movies I would still suggest you watch it. It is rather amusing. Yes
my friend who insisted I rent this, David Tennant is amazing in this movie.
I give this movie five out of five smiley Mike heads.
It is a great tribute to the original movie, I highly enjoyed it.
