Fright Night

(2011)

Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.

EXCLUSIVE: Sandra Vergara Talks ‘Fright Night’

DreamWorks Pictures' Fright Night, starring Colin Farrell, arrives on December 13, 2011 just in time to take a bite out of the holidays on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and On-Demand. Inspired by the 1985 gothic horror cult classic and directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, Mr. Woodcock), all hell breaks loose when High School Senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) discovers his charming new neighbor Jerry (Farrell) is a Vampire preying on his neighborhood.

Packed with unrated bonus features, the Blu-ray release includes a fang-in-cheek mockumentary ― Peter Vincent: Swim Inside My Mind, a hilarious satirical look at David Tennant's egocentric rock star anti-hero character, Peter Vincent; The Official How to Make a Funny Vampire Movie Guide; Squid Man: Extended and Uncut; Frightful Facts & Terrifying Trivia; Deleted Scenes; and a Gag Reel. Also included is the uncensored No One Believes Me music video directed by Fright Night's director Craig Gillespie and performed by hip hop recording artist Kid Cudi.
