Here is the plot description for “Fright Night”:

Senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all. He’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right.

No one – including Charley’s mom (Toni Collette) – seems to notice. After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charley comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charley has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy/horror classic.

The movie trailer for “Fright Night” can be watched now below.

Fright Night

Being a Twilight lover; I think the doctor vampire is the best way to be a vampire; easy access to blood and victims.

Perfect Vampire

The perfect vampire design to me would consist of fangs for teeth (sharp teeth, so they can suck on blood), and a cape. The cape can be any color however a shiny black or red one do seem most appropriate!! Under the cape I would wear a tuxedo, It is important to have dark eyes, and hair should be perfect, since most vampires are very vain! It easy to have hair slicked down with gel and hairspray, sort of like a punk rock hair do. Pretty much you want to mimick a dracular or interview with a vampire attire :) To me Tom Cruise as a vampire is perfection!

Best Vampire

I hate Twilight soft vampires so for me he/she would have to be bloodthirsty, cunning, charming, and evil. The best Vampires are smart and are hard to defeat.

Perfect Vampire

If you think about it, a perfect vampire would be a human. Only it wouldn’t ever die.

No fangs or any of that

No fangs or any of that typical vampire BS. Just an everyday Joe that blends into his environment.

Cleavage, fangs, cape

Real Vampire

No glittering in the sunlight, no emotions, and no ‘vegetarian’ diet. Real Vampires want to drink human blood. They have sharp fangs, kill humans, and die in the sunlight.

The best vampire is still

The best vampire is still the original dracula. He had it all.

The Perfect Vampire

The perfect vampire would be anonymous, could afford a good mattress, go to ball games in daylight, see his reflection and like garlic bread.

The Perfect Vampire would be...

A shape-shifter (to get in and out of various situations) with the fangs able to be retractable and, harkening back to the earlier vampire lore, the fangs being the front incisors instead of the cuspids. Fluent in many languages and highly educated. And, since this is my ideal vampire, a code to how they choose their blood sources.

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue.

Click here for details, including ticket information.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things.

The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
