Fright Night (2011)

Fright Night (4 out of 5 Graves)

As far as vampire movies go, this is a decent enough work.  It’s a bit silly and makes no sense at times, but the combination of Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, and Imogen Poots are so alive on screen, it doesn’t really matter.

So, I liked the movie, it was worth the $15 bucks I paid on iTunes to get it, especially since four of us watched it and enjoyed it.  There was plenty of action and a good bit of hot ass, so what more can you ask for?

So now that you know its worth watching and got 4 out of 5 graves, let’s do some damage and complain some.

First of all, Does Christopher Mintx-Platz (Ed) never age?  That’s just creepy. He looks just like he did in Superbad.

If you really think your buddy was eaten by a vampire, do you really wait around until dark and then go into his house?

In what world would you break into a vampires house? And why would you do anything at night?

I know it was supposed to be a horror movie, but half the movie was just black.  No color, no images, just darkness. I know the director was trying to build some suspense, but it was so overdone it got annoying.  It’s a movie, not an audio book.  Give me something to look at.

And finally, and I am sorry Imogen Poot, but your God Damn eyebrows in this movie should have been waxed and died.  it looked like you had giant catepillars stuck to your face above your eyes!!! (don’t get me wrong, your still hot, so if you want to be pissed at me please come and slap me in person) I just think the blond hair with deep black eyebrows looks odd.
