Der Trailer zu „Fright Night“ ist zwar wieder mal einer von der Spolier-behafteten Sorte, aber immerhin hält mich der Cast – bestehend aus Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Toni Collette, Christopher Mintz-Plasse und Imogen Poots – davon ab, sofort gänzlich in Remake-Abwehrhaltung zu gehen.
Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—and everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
