Another example of such blasphemy was the recent remake of Fright Night! If you haven't seen the original Fright Night from 1985, you have missed one of the greatest vampire movies ever made. Period! You will be shocked at how well Fright Night holds up in 2013. The horror is pure, the cast is fantastic, the humor is there to ease the horror and the conclusion is perfect. The acting god, Roddy McDowall, gave one of his better performances in this movie.
The disco scene... oh my god what an iconic scene -- with the horror, the menace, and the music. WOW!
The 2011 Fright Night remake starring Colin Farrell was a joke... and I don't mean funny. The movie was as devoid of soul as Colin Ferrell! And the abject crapping on the Roddy McDowall character with the... I don't even know what that twisting of the character was in this remake... dude, was simply what made me lose all respect for this remake!
Purchase, not rent, the original Fright Night! You will not regret it... like I hope I will not regret killing two hours with this "EVIL DEAD" remake when it is released!
