Fright Night is set to arrive on Blu-ray and DVD just in time for the holidays. The movie comes with some aweomse un-rated bonus features that give this blood-sucking thriller some extra bite. I really enjoyed this movie and can not wait to see it on Blu-ray with the extra features.
Official Press Relase:
DreamWorks Pictures’ Fright Night, starring Colin Farrell, arrives onDecember 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 un-rated 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.
Proclaimed, “A Bloody Good Time” by Trey Alexander (Fandango.com), Fright Night features an all-star cast including: Colin Farrell (Horrible Bosses, Crazy Heart), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Terminator Salvation), Toni Collette (Academy Award® nominee for The Sixth Sense, and Golden Globe® winner for United States of Tara), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick Ass, Superbad), David Tennant (Dr. Who, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and Imogen Poots (Jane Eyre, 28 Weeks Later).
Charley (Anton Yelchin) is a high school senior who’s on top of the world—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating Amy (Imogen Poots), the most coveted girl in school. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a nice guy––at first. But there’s something not quite right, and no one else, including Charley’s mom (Toni Collette) seems to notice. After his classmates start to mysteriously disappear without a trace, Charlie discovers that there is more to his new neighbor than meets the eye. Now he must do all he can to protect his mom and girlfriend Amy from meeting the same fate as his best friend Ed Thompson (Christopher Mintz-Plasse).
I’ve been so busy on getting the screencaps uploaded that I almost forgot to let you know that I’ve added a few more photos from the “Fright Night” screening in Los Angeles. The newest additions are in high-ish quality, so enjoy!

Anton Yelchin had the heavy task of taking down a vampire in “Fright Night,” but the actor says one of his scariest enemies was sleep deprivation.
“Chris [Mintz-Plasse] and I had four excruciating days of shooting this fight scene and it was hard because it was like all-nighters and we just kept each other up and then I almost shot Davey [Franco] with a shotgun, I chopped Chris in the head with an ax,” Yelchin told OnTheRedCarpet.com co-host Rachel Smith at a recent screening. “It was late – you give tired actors weapons and that’s what happens!”
Earlier this week the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX put on a special screening of DreamWorks’ Fright Night 3D, which in typical Drafthouse fashion meant putting together a special menu for the night (pictured at right), bringing in a few of the film’s cast members to participate in some events and having an all around good time. Naturally one of these events found stars Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Dave Franco chugging sangria from blood bags.
As you can imagine, by the time it got around to talking to the gents about their fun, R-rated vampire film, the trio were a little loosened up (as evidenced by Franco beginning the interview) and perfectly happy to bust each other’s chops throughout.
Dave Franco: Are you a big fan of the original Fright Night?
Movies.com: Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the original.
Franco: Why not?
Movies.com: It’s very stagey, it’s a bit dry and I just can’t stand its Evil Ed.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse: That’s some of its charm, though. It’s corny.
Anton Yelchin: Let the man have an opinion, bro.
Mintz-Plasse: You’re not conducting this interview!
Franco: I’m trying to!
