Consensus: It may not have been necessary to remake the 1985 cult classic, but the new Fright Night benefits from terrific performances by Colin Farrell and David Tennant -- and it's smart, funny, and stylishly gory to boot.

A remarkably confident remake that boasts its own pleasures more often than not.

The script by TV writer-producer Marti Noxon is so unimaginative that people are actually called "douchebag!" in four different scenes.

A solid remake. I would imagine someone other than Yelchin could have made a more appealing star, but he was adequate for the role. Farrell as the vampire… More
