Every time I see a remake that makes me cringe, I remember that Hollywood needed three tries to get it right with The Maltese Falcon. Then, when I see a good remake, like Fright Night, I feel ever so slightly vindicated for not giving up hope.
In a world where… movie remakes are common but good remakes considerably less so, the upcoming remake of horror/comedy classic Fright Night is looking better and better with every bit of new information released. From a stellar cast [Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant, Toni Collette, etc.] and intriguing directorial choice Craig Gillespie [Lars and the Real Girl, United States of Tara] – and a screenplay by Marti Noxon [Buffy the Vampire Slayer], to a half-dozen freshly released photos, it really looks like this remake will be a good one.
