Fright Night International Character Posters
06.29.11 by BJSprecher
While the domestic marketing campaign for Fright Night features a creepy, almost retro-horror teaser poster, the U.K. campaign for the updated remake of the 1985 comedy-horror classic includes four character posters of a more modern flavor, complete with sexy poses, catchy slogans, and bloody graphics. Featured on the four posters are Anton Yelchin as the boy with the vampire problem, Imogen Poots as Charley's too-hot girlfriend, David Tennant as faux vampire hunter Peter Vincent, and Colin Farrell as the problematic vampire next door.
For those not familiar with the original, here's the official synopsis of the remake:
Senior Charley Brewster (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 (Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there's something not quite right — and everyone, including Charley's mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t 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.
Fright Night also stars Dave Franco, Will Denton, Chelsea Tavares, Emily Montague, and Grace Phipps. The script was updated by Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer Marti Noxon.
