Fright Night’s inability to impress audiences may be an indication that the vampire trend is truly dead, excepting Twilight. Which is too bad, because Farrell is tall, dark, and awesome. There’s a scene where Farrell’s Jerry needs an invitation from Yelchin’s Charley Brewster in order to enter Charley‘s house that is in itself worth the $30.99 Blu-Ray price. I’m not kidding; he’s really that good. It also helps that Toni Collette and Christopher Mintz-Plasse have small roles.
Likewise, Lars and the Real Girl director Craig Gillespie recently released a new version of Fright Night in 2 and 3D. If you missed it in theaters, you’ll be able to catch the vampire flick, starring Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin, when it hits 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, and DVD on December 13th.
