Farrell Vampire Fright

Farrell Vampire FrightFarrell Vampire Fright, Can a horror movie in 3-D be a thing of beauty? In the case of the remake of “Fright Night”, the answer is “Yes!” This vampire story violent and wildly funny covers anything new, wearing the same tone as the original joke. But there is a peculiar sensibility that could be attributed to director Craig Gillespie, who gave us the twisted care “Lars and the Real Girl”.

“Fright Night” can also boast the best vampire villain in ages: The thick eyebrow Colin Farrell was born to wear fangs.

However, the hiring of Javier Aguirresarobe, who shot “Goya’s Ghosts,” “New Moon” and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” was also a coup. His 3-D camera sweeps in rooms full of smoke, shadow, lit only by candles or a flickering television screen, through the empty streets of a suburb of Las Vegas and the garish neon lights of Las Vegas itself.

Yes, the screen throws blood, guts, broken glass, crucifixes arrows and right in the face. It is a horror movie in 3-D, after all. But look here is as stunning as any movie using 3-D.

The story? Children and adults are disappearing. But poorly executed houses and the economy are everywhere. And, as Charley (Anton Yelchin) says: “Nobody lives in Las Vegas, which just happened.”

That makes it the perfect place for a slaughter of vampires. Charley did not heed the warnings of his friend nerd, Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). The boy says “too much” Twilight, “” only one reason Charley left him as a friend. He cannot impress the stunning Amy (Imogen Poots) if your geek is spent in front of her.

But Charley soon have reason to be so suspicious of his new neighbor, Jerry and Ed (Colin Farrell) is a piece that seems to do a lot of home repairs in your home the way – at night. Charley cannot tell the cops or tell your mother (Toni Collette), or Amy. Who would believe him, and the list of truancy in high school is growing every day? Most of the film is Charley trying to outrun and outsmart a clever, ruthless vampire, a leech that refers to the suspect in the same way that addresses everyone – with a bite.

We know that all the “rules” for the fight against vampires, thanks to pop culture. “Fright Night,” the toolkit smart vampire hunter, just off the stakes of holly, holy water and crucifixes.

The former “Doctor Who” David Tennant is drunk, oversexed Peter Vincent, star of a Las Vegas stage show of fight and kill vampires, a program called “Fright Night”. Roddy McDowell played this role cheesy in the original film – a fraud who pretends to be an expert, but given the option to start-or-shut-when the child comes to him to help fight the real vampires.

The effects of transformation-vamp are quite good; the effect uses a lot of 3-D entertainment. But perhaps the most special effect of all is Farrell. Pardon the pun, but the film is eaten up.

As seen in the film “Captain Americaā€¯?? To “help” to spend the money on getting a very good actor menacing than the villain that makes the difference, especially in a film that otherwise is entirely too familiar to keep awake all the way through a long night of terror.
