Fright Night Preview: Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, May 16, 2011

It's a return to the long lost, creepy sexual predator-type of vampires with the trailer of the Craig Gillespie's Fright Night remake.

We have earlier brought your attention to the upcoming remake of 1985 classic teen-horror film, Fright Night. Now you can have a good look at the film with the release of the film's first trailer.

Head over to IGN for a HD version of the trailer.

While a throwback to the good old creepy sexual predator-type of vampires is in itself something to celebrate about, given the recent crops of sexy, romantic bloodsuckers, any earlier optimism I had on this remake dwindled a little after watching this trailer. The online community is already calling the film "Disturbia with a vampire" and I find it hard to disagree. Where's the humor, both dark and/or campy, and more importantly, where in the blue hell is Peter Vincent (who incidentally will be portrayed by David Tennant (the tenth Doctor Who), with the role reimagined from TV's late night horror show host to Las Vegas/British magician whose show revolves around horror movie imagery)? Oh wait, there he is, in a blink-and-miss scene around the 2:09 mark.

Anyway, here's two newly-released set pictures from the film, featuring Tennant in his best madcap Criss Angel impression. Following which, you can find the first poster for the film.

Here's a recap of the official synopsis of the film:

Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.

Fright Night is scheduled to be released on August 19th.
