Today’s random Frights playlist video: Fright Night (1985) Trailer

June 16, 2012

Completely by coincidence here’s the Fright Night 1985 trailer. How I pick these videos of the day… I go to my website (where the player is) I hit refresh and then hit the “next” button two times. Whatever comes up (if it’s not a repeat) I post that video for the day. So barring my comments from last night where I said “If you actually believe you like “the original Fright Night better” (something I saw someone post on Pinterest), then you either didn’t see the new one or you seriously don’t get they are completely different movies.” and “Yeah, I like them both too, but it’s like comparing Deep Impact and Armageddon. Both about meteors crashing into the Earth, but different enough to be completely different movies. In Fright Night the same names are used, but the characters, locations, totally different.” I present the trailer for Fright Night from 1985, because it’s on my playlist. 🙂

REVIEW: FRIGHT NIGHT (2011) – No Spoilers…

August 4, 2011

By now everyone has vented their frustrations about remake hell that all movies, especially horror movies, are going through. It’s no secret that most people seem to hate the idea that FRIGHT NIGHT even got remade at all. I’m a genuine big fan of the original as Mr. Frights was actually inspired by my boyhood love for the character of PETER VINCENT. I on the other hand, am always willing to give something the benefit of the doubt before decrying how terrible it might be.

I was very much looking forward to this movie. It has some of my favorite actors in it. It looked like fun in the trailers and the Comic Con teaser video. It is horror. And I have a strong fondness for the original film and it’s sequel. I loved Roddy McDowall and I love David Tennant from Dr. Who. When I got passes I was pretty excited. I tried to get a bunch of friends to go, but no one was interested. THAT RIGHT THERE BLOWS!! If you can’t get people interested in seeing a film for FREE, what kind of chance does it have at being a success if it’s any good, and what kind of chance will horror films from here out have if they keep posting crappy box office stats? I say complain if you want, but if you’re a horror fan, if you’re a fan of the original Fright Night film or any of the other stuff I just mentioned, then your ass should be in a theater seat watching this movie!

So, are you curious yet? Do you want to know how bad the movie was? Well, you pre-screening critics will be disappointed to know it was FREAKING AWESOME!!! I don’t think there was a time in my life where a remake took me so by surprise and body slammed all my expectations producing such an amazing film. And you can quote me on that and on everything I say from here on in this review.

I went in thinking that it might be fun but that’s about it and left absolutely raving mad about the movie. The people who made this put together a genuinely terrifying leap from the original film to a brand new story that happened to have some characters named the same, in the same sort of situations, but completely different from the original. In that way, I can’t honestly say it was a remake. There is no shot for shot anything, the characters are all different in a big way, there are more characters to consider, the things that go down are not the same from the 80’s movie, and the differences don’t stop there. Oh and don’t be worried because every change that was made WORKED!!

The story goes that CHARLEY BREWSTER lives in Vegas and that infamous vampire neighbor moves in next door and so Charley boy has to figure out how to kill him. That’s the basics. He still has his girl Amy, his buddy ‘Evil Ed’ and a host of other characters as well as the great PETER VINCENT who is a Las Vegas magician act the likes of Criss Angel.There are even some surprises to be had as the movie progresses that I really want to leave alone because if your reaction is anything like my reaction then you’ll appreciate it more having me not spoil it for you.

Colin Farrell is brilliant as Jerry the vampire. As I had hoped, David Tennant is brilliant as Peter Vincent, but does his own thing with it, not at all trying to take over anything from Roddy. Anton Yelchin, from Star Trek (he played Checkov), was really good too as was the rest of the cast.

The creators behind this new film (Craig Gillespie; Marti Noxon; & of course  Tom Holland) took a lot of risks and put a lot more horror into this film. While still delivering on some well placed laughs, the movie is way more intense than the original. There’s not as much hokey to it which serves it well to set it apart from Fright Night of the 80’s. I have to say that at parts, this movie actually scared me and it’s been forever since I’ve seen a horror film that could do that!

This movie is a refreshing departure from remake hell even though it is based on another film and has the same sort of characters. I was really impressed with this production and it was even more impressive in 3D which I advise everyone to check it out that way. I mean horror movies are why 3D was created man!!! Don’t miss out on that. Seriously. The kills alone, the deaths of the vamps alone is worth the 3D.

I want to rave on more about how awesome and brilliant and amazing this new movie is, but I can’t give anything away. All I can do is tell you guys how wonderful this thing turned out to be and plead with you all to give it a chance and go see it! If there was EVER a horror film that deserved support and big box office numbers in recent years, it’s this one. Mr. Frights would not steer you wrong, trust in me horror peeps, if you miss this in theaters you’ll be spanking your own hams for it for a long long time. I’m already overly, excitedly, anticipating the DVD release.Hell, if I had the time I’d go see it three more times.
