Go read a good book
4 August 2011 | by abq767See all my reviews

I saw this tonight at a free preview. I got what I paid for 1. If you're over 30, you probably won't like this 2. If you've never seen the other Fright Night, you won't like this 3. If you don't like gratuitous cursing, you won't like this 4. If you like a plot that is not 100% predictable, you won't like this. The 3D effects were "ok" but not great.

The movie is made for the teenage crowd, but there are some minor attractions for non-teenagers. There were a few funny lines that got theater-wide chuckles, but they were far and few.

The only saving grace was the CGI effects. For that I give it a 3/10
