Make a Date With Fright Night 3D

Make a Date With Fright Night 3DDreamWorks announced today a release date of October 7th, 2011 for Craig Gillespie’s very different take on the Tom Holland classic Fright Night. How will his re-envisioning, which was penned by Marti Noxon and is coming at us in 3D, turn out? Let’s just hope for this new Brewster’s sake that it will be “so cool”!

The new version sticks to the original concept of a teen named Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) who is 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. Christopher Mintz-Plasse is playing Brewster’s best friend, Evil Ed, “Doctor Who”‘s David Tennant will be playing Peter Vincent, Imogen Poots is popular high school senior Amy, and Toni Collette is Charlie’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.

Look for more soon!

      Bram Stoker’s Dracula is rather overrated if you ask me. My Top Five would be as follows:

      5. Dracula: Prince of Darkness
      4. Count Dracula (1977)
      3. The Lost Boys
      2. Near Dark
      1. Horror of Dracula
