A remake of the 1985 movie, written by writer-producer Marti Noxon ("Buffy," "Angel," "Mad Men"). This new Fright Night sticks to the original premise, that of a teenager who’s convinced that his neighbor is a vampire even though no one believes him. Tennant stars as Peter Vincent, who was played by Roddy McDowall in the 1985 version but instead of being a late night TV host, he's a Las Vegas magician whose show revolves around horror-movie imagery. Vincent claims to be a vampire expert, but when the teen turns to him for assistance, he’s less than helpful.  Mintz-Plasse plays Yelchin’s friend Evil Ed, who feels slighted that Charlie has left his nerdy past behind so he decides to move over to the dark side with the vampires.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
