Meet the sexy new neighbor, Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell). He’s dangerously charming – and utterly lethal. That's because he just happens to be a vampire, and out for blood…buckets of it. After high school senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) makes the connection between Jerry’s suspicious activity and a steadily rising body count, he vows to end the reign of terror next door. But he can’t do it alone. His only hope is Las Vegas magician/vampire-slayer Peter Vincent (David Tennant). Together, this unlikely duo set out to end Jerry's evil rampage. But Jerry is a ruthless, relentless killer, and he’s not going down without a fight. Get set to sink your teeth into this thrilling re-vamp of the terrifying horror classic. Featuring a star-studded cast and crawling with bonus, Fright Night will captivate you from the very first bite!

Critics Consensus: It may not have been necessary to remake the 1985 cult classic, but the new Fright Night benefits from terrific performances by Colin Farrell and David Tennant -- and it's smart, funny, and stylishly gory to boot.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this Colin Farrell vampire movie -- a remake of the same-named 1985 cult classic -- blends comedy and horror. But despite the attempt at a lighter tone, it has plenty of vampire violence, with lots of blood, biting, stabbing, shooting, burning, and fighting. Language is likewise strong, with many uses of "f--k" and "s--t" throughout. There's no nudity, but characters are definitely thinking about sex, and there's lots of flirting and innuendo. One supporting character, an adult, may have a drinking problem, which is treated somewhat comically. So, no, this isn't Twilight -- but older teens who like their vampires with (pun intended) more bite will probably want to check it out.
