Synopsis

In this revamp of the comedy-horror classic Fright Night directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl), senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most 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—yet no one, including Charley’s mom (Toni Collette), seems to notice. After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charley comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charley has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself.
