Finally we’ve been treated to a nice big proper trailer of the remake of Fright Night, featuring some great footage of David Tennant in his role as magician tuned vampire hunter and honestly… it’s looking really good!
Fright Night sees the story of Charlie Brewster, an all American teen whose life is forever changed when he finds out that his next door neighbour is a vampire that’s preying on the local neighbourhood. The original Fright Night was a tongue in cheek horror that didn’t take itself too seriously but this remake looks set to be something quite different.
Featuring great one liner’s and some excellent looking directions, this could turn out to be one of those remakes that may just be better than the original…
Tennant has his “Tenth Doctor” voice going on it would seem and it’s also a little strange to hear him talking of gathering an army to fight a vampire, stranger still is hearing him utter the words “let’s kill something” whilst loaded up to the teeth with guns.
This may well be the film that gets Tennant the Hollywood spot he’s been looking for and judging by the trailer, it’s going to work.
Fright Night will be released in the US from August 19th in (shock and horror) 3D.
