Fright Night Movie Review By: Rama

Fright Night Movie Review
By: Rama

Ramascreen has out done himself again. Letting us know how Fright Night is. Make sure to follow him on Twitter and Like their Facebook page.

It’s been years since I watched the original film, I can’t remember much anymore, I know I wasn’t too crazy about it but I’m aware that many of you out there are big fans and you’re probably against this reboot but let me tell you this.., this new take on FRIGHT NIGHT is bloody awesome! It’s frightfully fun, it’s pulse-pounding, it’s exciting, it’s clever and funny. This is not for fans of Twilight, this is more for fans of True Blood because director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Marti Noxon, who by the way was involved with Buffy world for years, have brought back everything that’s great about the vampires that we practically grew up with, such as The Lost Boys.
This is not the glittery supermodel kind, but the dangerous, sexual, hungry beings with weaknesses that follow the traditional rules…

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

What a great cast! They couldn't have picked a better man as the lead vampire, Jerry, it’s as if Colin Farrell channels all his real life old skool, player, bad boy persona and puts a pair a fangs to it. Farrell has a charm that just draws you in, he would work the smile, he’d work the tone of his voice, he’s like a walking temptation. His victims would easily fall like a prey that enters a trap because there’s something irresistible and attractive about it. His ‘scent’ speech reminds me of Hannibal Lecter’s ‘fava beans’ speech.. just like Hannibal, Jerry will try to mess with your head.

I don’t want to spoil much but Christopher Mintz-Plasse practically plays 2 roles in this movie and he knocks both out of the park. He’s not just there as a comic-relief. I don’t have any complaint about Anton Yelchin, I think he does his job, his character Charley and his estranged best friend Ed (Plasse) sets up for what would eventually become Charley’s motivation to battle Jerry.

The one that stands out to me is the hilarious David Tennant. Young viewers in the U.S. probably aren’t too familiar with Tennant’s work as Doctor Who because sadly they’re too busy watching shows like Jersey Shore but Tennant, in FRIGHT NIGHT, is a blast. He will crack you up, piss you off, and you will root for him.

His character, the magician Peter Vincent, is one of those who act proud, talk big, and are spoiled, rude, and arrogant but they know enough that they’re easily scared. Vincent would have nothing to do with Charley’s little suicide mission because he knows better and the way Tennant carries himself in this role is just effortless, worth watching, what a treat!

I think FRIGHT NIGHT is the perfect film to close summer movie season of 2011. If you’re into vampire movies or creature movies in general, you’re going to be impressed with the look the they have for Jerry when he exposes his real menacing form. His vampiric form might stay in your head long after the movie’s done, it would strike fear into the hearts of audiences who may not be ready for such sight.

Like I said earlier, they bring back the type of vampire that we grew up with. And I respect the fact that Noxon doesn’t try too hard to come up with new rules as to what may or may not kill a vampire, or what vampires can or cannot do, what Noxon did was come up with a clever way to use the rules that already exist, and use them to Charley’s advantage.

FRIGHT NIGHT is just a very fun R-rated movie, there’s not a single boring minute. There’s a bit of cat-and-mouse chase, it’s got moments that would get you jumpy, there’s a bit of stereotypical bully-nerd drama but that part never goes overboard because once the horror/action kicks in, it’s on and it keeps on coming. Most of the suspenseful scenes are in the dark or at night, so at least in my opinion you don’t really need those 3D glasses to enjoy it because I guarantee you’ll have a good time either way.

Of all the gazillion remakes and reboots in recent years, FRIGHT NIGHT is one of the few refreshing ones, you are not going to regret watching it.

GRADE: 4 out of 5

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
