Fright Night Remake Gets a Surprising Rating From the MPAA

Post Thumb:


Okay then. You can officially color us surprised. Apparently the 3D remake of the Tom Holland classic vampire flick Fright Night has gone before the dreaded MPAA and has come back with a rating none of us saw coming.

That’s right, kids. Fright Night 3D has been rated R for “bloody horror violence and language including some sexual references.” 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.

  • Foywonder

    But will it stay an R? There’s still plenty of time between now and August 19th to trim it to a PG-13.

    Still not interested… I do eagerly await a blu ray of the original though.
