This week we take a look at Fright Night


MADSTEEZ : Mark Paul Deren
Will I see Fright Night? I don't think so. I never caught on to the whole vampire craze thing. It seems like it's for younger audiences but it has some adult sexual references which i do like. Unless it's playing on an airplane and I'm forced to watch it, I don't think I'm going to see this one in the theaters.

When I first heard this film was being remade, I let out an audible sigh. The recent onslaught of vampire and werewolf films/books/TV shows has become almost unbearable. The subject matter itself is half of it, but the fact that every new show/movie/book that comes out seems to be worse than the one before it, yet produced anyway solely to capitalize on the popularity of the genre, is disheartening. With that in mind, I'm not so sure that Fright Night is going to continue that trend. It's not going to win any Oscars, but it has the makings of being far better than the other offerings in the genre lately. With Colin Farrell, Toni Colette, Anton Yelchin, Screenwriter Marti Noxon, and Director Craig Gillespie all having solid track records as of late, the chances of this being at the very least a fun night at the movies are very good. I'm not going to carve a date out of my schedule to go see this, but I'd take it over another Twilight incarnation any day.

Fright Night was one of my favorate scary movies of all time. I hope they don't butcher the original. I will probably see it second weekend.

Weak sauce. Ideas man, ideas...they're inside that thing on your shoulders, I swear.

I loved the original film so if it is anything like that, it will be great! I will see it in theaters.
  Brandon Bolmer
When I saw the preview for this movie, it seemed to start out pretty good, but I'm not really into the vampire thing, especially when Colin Farrell is the main vampire, AND it's a remake. I probably won't check this one out, but MAYBE if I hear good things from people.

Besides getting the opinions of the people above, we also surveyed 100 people at Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco, CA.

After polling 100 people, here are the results:
13 people "Going to See it Opening Weekend"
24 people "Probably See it in Theaters"
26 people "Going to wait for DVD"
37 people "Won't see it"
