New on DVD & Blu-Ray : FRIGHT NIGHT (2011)

Synopsis: Senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all. He's running with the cool kids and dating the hottest girl in high school (Imogen Poots). But all hell breaks loose when charming Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. Charley thinks there's something odd about him, although no one - including his mom (Toni Collette) - seems to notice. But after too many of his classmates vanish under bizarre circumstances, Charley comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood! Get set to sink your teeth into this thrilling, modern-day re-vamp of the wickedly entertaining horror classic. Featuring a star-studded cast and crawling with bonus, Fright Night will captivate you from the very first bite!

What to Expect : As far as remakes go, it's not bad. Not bad at all. In fact, it's almost as good as the original. Some smart variations on the original's plot elements keep the 2011 version fresh enough to enjoy even if you've alredy seen the 1985 movie. Farrell gets top marks for delivering a genuinely scary villain. Overall, it's a decent vampire flick that will keep you thrilled and chilled throughout its running time. My only gripe, a small one really, would be that the CGI visual effects look a little too artificial.
