A few weeks ago, we posted the first trailer for Craig Gillespie’s Fright Night remake really which caught most people by surprise since they changed the tone of the film, shifting it from a comedy to a straight horror film and chaning the original PG-13 rating to a MPAA R rating. Now MTV has released the first extended clip from the movie, which features Colin Farrell playing the vampire original played by Chris Sarandon. Enjoy!
Official plot synopsis:
Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
Fright Night stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant, Imogen Poots, and Toni Collette.
