One of the most memorable horror movies of the 1980s is getting a 2011 update with the release of this summer's 'Fright Night.'
'Fright Night' is just your average story of a typical suburban kid who meets his new next-door neighbor, quickly suspects that said neighbor is actually a blood-sucking vampire, has his fears confirmed when his life is put in danger, watches his mother get put under a hypnotic vampire's spell, must team with a Vegas stage-show magician to slay the undead threat, and somehow save the day. You know, typical teenage angst.
'Fright Night' is filled with plenty of scares, lots of blood and even a few laughs. And now Moviefone has exclusive new images of 'Fright Night''s spooky treats.
Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) knows his next-door neighbor Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell) is a vampire, but no one will believe him. How much more proof do they need?
Imogen Poots plays a popular high schooler who must rely on the nerdy Charlie to protect her. This truly is a film of unspeakable horrors.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse stars as Charlie's best buddy "Evil" Ed -- and adds another notch to his geek cinema belt.
Now let's all watch the J. Geils Band's music video for the original 'Fright Night' because that song is amazing.
'Fright Night' opens on August 19.
