I know Hollywood is known for remaking movies and we all have complained from time to time about it. Like “Get an original idea!” or “Why mess with a classic?” I usually agree with all those sentiments but I saw The Hangover Part II on Friday, and sat through 20 minutes of previews (mostly diverting my eyes), there was one that caught my attention: Fright Night. This is a remake from the 1985 film starring Chris Sarandon.
Maybe it’s because it has Colin Ferrell in the lead role. Maybe it’s because it is about vampires, and I am a sucker (no pun intended) for vampire stories but I want to see this one.
Now, I must confess once I realized what the movie was I turned my gaze away for the second half of the preview and only listened. I really don’t want this one spoiled for me.
