Fright Night (2011)
Staying on theme with comedy horror, because they really don’t get enough credit, how about checking out the under-the-radar remake of Fright Night directed by I, Tonya’s Craig Gillespie and starring Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, David Tennent, Imogen Poots, Dave Franco and the late Anton Yelchin. Need I say more? This would actually be a perfect double feature with The ‘Burbs too. Fright Night is about Yelchin’s Charley, who discovers his new neighbor Jerry (Farrell) is a vampire who is wreaking havoc on their community. So Charley reaches out to a Las Vegas magician / expert on vampires Peter Vincent (Tennent) to help him out. It’s bloody and a blast! Sounds like a perfect Halloween treat.
