The remake of the Tom Holland classic Fright Night has sent shivers down the spines of many horror fans old enough or smart enough to have seen the original in all of its glory. However, the makers of the remake seem to be on the right track in terms of paying homage to the source material, as evidenced by the new film’s logo.
While at CinemaCon our buds at Collider snapped a photo of the remake’s logo, which was included on a Dreamworks banner. It’s pretty much an exact replica of the original. This makes us happy.
Look for Fright Night in theatres on August 19th, 2011.
“Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.”
