Fright Night (2011)

Do you ever have that feeling like your life is a purse that’s too small for all your stuff, and no matter how much you try to prune away, you just can’t fit it all in? Kinda feel like that, today.

So, didn’t want to go another day without telling you that my husband G Grod and I watched the remake of Fright Night from last year. And it was hella fun. It’s a funny/scary vampire tale written by Marti Noxon, who used to write for TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and whose name I always confuse with Marni Nixon, who did the actual singing for many classics like West Side Story). It has David Tennant, formerly Dr. Who, in a significant role. Colin Farrell is perfectly cast, so kudos to whoever picked him. AND I liked the 1985 original (seem to remember watching it with my sisters) and one of the stars from that has a cameo.

SO, hardly haute cinema, but if you’re a Buffy, Dr. Who or Fright Night ‘85 fan, check this one out.
