The kinda funny Fright Night doesn't suck

Vampire movies are rarely laughing matters, but Fright Night adds just enough humor to its gore.

Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin), a high-school senior living in Las Vegas, has cool friends, a hot girlfriend, and a new neighbor, who just happens to be a vampire. Charley is suspicious at first, but when a friend goes missing, he cautiously begins spying on the odd, sinister, and possibly undead Jerry (Colin Farrell).

Fright Night doesn't exactly revolutionize the played-out genre, but Farrell nails his bloodsucker's sexual allure. There aren't too many shocks in this vampire movie, but its playful sense of humor and doses of action makes it better than most. --Ben Gifford
