Fright Night Remake Coming at Us in 3D?

Fright Night RemakeYou know what’s sad? Here in the Dread Central offices we’ve always loved 3D. When used correctly, it’s a campy and fun experience, but now Hollywood is looking to cram the effect down our throats any chance they get whether a movie is filmed in 3D or not. The next potential flick to get the jump off the screen treatment? The remake of the Tom Holland classic Fright Night. Sigh.

Buried in an article over on Variety are rumors of DreamWorks talking about bringing us the toothy redux in 3D. So the question beckons … does that turn you on or off? Be heard below.

The new version, directed by Craig Gillespie, sticks to the original concept of a teen (Anton Yelchin) being convinced that his new neighbor is a vampire, though no one will believe him.

Colin Farrell has the plum role of the vampire, named Jerry, who on the surface appears to be a cool guy but is really preying on the neighborhood. Chris Sarandon played the role in the 1985 pic.

Toni Collette is Yelchin’s mom, who at first disapproves of the new arrival but changes her attitude when she meets the magnetic man and — surprise — doesn’t believe her son when he tries to tell her Jerry is a vampire.

Keep it here for more on Fright Night as it comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Fuck me with the 3-D, already remake!

  • frank_dracman

    I won’t be seeing it, so I don’t care. The original is near perfect, thank you very much.

  • Terminal

    Colin Farrell in 3D is a horrifying concept.

    You guys have offices?

      That’s what I came away with too. You guys have an office? Do you yell “Stop the internets!” what a hot story comes through close to presstime?

      • Gus Bjork

        Oh and I could care less about the 3D. Good movie enhanced by 3D, fine. But a bad movie in any dimension is still a bad movie. Well, unless you live on Bizarro world I suppose.

  • Elf

    This movie wouldn’t work in 3D. First off they’re remaking something that’s nearly perfection, and now in 3D?

    Do not want. Do not want.

  • Spaceshark

    Just to be different, 3D? HELL YES!

  • FireRam

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww F!
    Seriously, I’m really tired of 3-D!
