Fright Night of the 1980s has been a good hit with Director Tom Holland. But this year’s remake of the horror film had just an OK rating by moviegoers and critiques.
May it be because of the post-Twilight syndrome that many of us are afflicted with or may it be just the story line, but the movie was comical in some scenes compared the horror-motivated plot of the original Fright Night.
Another notable salient comment of critiques on this Fright Night remake is the obnoxious “Jerry the Vampire”, which makes a perfect tandem with “Buffy... the Vampire Slayer”. But kidding aside, Buffy wasn’t there. A gorgeous Colin Ferrell in the character of Jerry the Vampire has been graded best in the role with seductive yet scary eyes and languages that are more interesting and much awaited compared to the regular Vampire characters.
It seems that critiques have affiliated positively the character of Ferrell and the over-all look of the movie, and hence gave it an OK rating instead of Bad. Nevertheless,if you have seen the original version of the Fright Night movie, you can see the difference not just in the setting but in how the characters portrayed their specific roles. It’s not bad, but it’s not that good either, so OK ratings might be justifiable.
