09.06.2011 – Fright Night is a remake of the original 1985 film of the same name. The red carpet premiere was shown in London on a Sunday of August 14th. It was shown in North America on August 19, 2011 on Real 3D.

In the Philippines it had recently held a special screening at the SM Cinema in SM Megamall. For anyone looking for suspense and humor Fright Night is both and more. This special screening is collaboration between SM Cinema, Walt Disney International Pictures, and radio station Wave 89.1 FM.

For most of the reception after seeing this film is positive and there were some hints to the original 1985 film that also spawned a sequel in 1988.

Fright Night is not like your usual scream out suspense flick. It’s a remake of the original movie with the same title and stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, The Beaver), Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later), Collin Farrel (Horrible Bosses, Miami Vice) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick Ass) as “Evil” Ed Lee. From start to finish the pacing of this film is a bit quick, but just right for everyone to feel the suspense.

Collin Farrel is no vampire from Twilight and definitely an awesome one just to take notice with his role. The same plot but done in a bigger scene set in Las Vegas which definitely updates the original for the current movie goers.

Imogen Poots really caught our attention as the girl of Anton Yelchin’s character Amy. She’s up and coming actress worth looking forward in future films. If you missed her on “V for Vendetta” she was the young Valerie and had a stellar performance in “28 Weeks Later” and she should have a sticker in GetGlue.com when they were offering it last August.

This was an unexpected film to be remade and turns out to be something worth watching once it hits regular theaters this week.

“Evil” Ed Lee played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse was quite an annoying character and certainly you should check this guy out. From the spoiled son of a crime lord turned super villain aka The Red Mists in “Kick Ass” to a dweeb best friend of Charley certainly needs some social life.

Overall it was a fun ride to watch this film just that they could have this shown also in traditional 2D as these days not all movies should be in 3D. But that doesn’t hinder us to rate this 4 out 5 score for a different take compared to the original which this film deserves a second look.

Fright Night opens across the country in Real 3D from Walt Disney International Pictures distributed by Columbia Pictures Philippines showing on September 7, 2011!
