Another day, another pointless Hollywood remake. This time it’s Fright Night, originally released in 1985. That version obviously wasn’t good enough, so we need a do-over. I guess.
The cast of Fright Night is awesome. Colin Farrell as the over-the-top vampire, Anton Yelchin as the next-door neighbor, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as his mate, and even David ‘Dr. Who‘ Tennant. But a good cast alone cannot guarantee a good movie.
I must say I’m not impressed with this trailer. It all looks a little cheap and nasty, and not exactly inspiring. Oh, the guy who has just moved in is a vampire! Who cares, as long as it isn’t my neighborhood.
You’d think there were no original ideas any more. Hollywood is intent on remaking or rebooting movies that have already been seen once. It makes me think I should have a go at writing a screenplay. It’d be better than the new Fright Night, that’s for sure.
