David Tennant pops your cherry as Peter Vincent in this new clip from Fright Night

Jul. 25, 2011by: Niki Stephens

All I want out of FRIGHT NIGHT right now is more David Tennant. That's really all I need. I read Mike Sampson's description of one of the clips including Tennant as Peter Vincent that he saw during the panel for the film-- I was envious.

That didn't last long however since the clip has now popped up online. In this clip, you will see Charlie (Anton Yelchin) meeting up with Peter Vincent (Tennant) to discuss how to kill a vampire. As Vincent invites the nervous Charlie in, he stays in scumbag mode as he slowly rips away prosthetics and the other bits that make up his character.

Very cool

I'm a big David Tennant fan and he really seems to bring it, looking at that clip. Of course it's completely different from the original Peter Vincent, but I like this approach also. And the flick even got an R-rating! I really thought they would go for PG 13... So yeah, looking forward to this!

Saw it and not bad...

Saw this at an early screening with a friend and I was pleasantly surprised. It isn't FRIGHT NIGHT 1980's but we knew that. David Tennant is certainly the highlight. If anything it could have used just a little bit of character build up before things start "happening." Also, Colin Ferrell is quite good as the vampire, he, at least, has some pretty good moments. Oh and as for the 3D; I found it to be pretty well done. The whole experience I found worth the $13 (or more for 3D).

For what it's worth, the one single review on its IMDB page (from someone who saw it early) was positive, plus there are some fairly positive informal reviews in the forum.

On the other hand, I don't think it's safe to trust a site with that many Dr. Who fans.

I still don't get the bitching.

It's got to be just because the internet hates the idea of remakes (and for the most part so do I). Because has anybody watched the original Fright Night lately? There were some great fx, but I think this is a perfect example of something worth updating. Plus Colin Farrel and David Tennant are the kings of cool.

I believe there are remakes and re-makes. from what i've seen of this movie it looks like they are trying to make something that will not tarnish the original. A remake can be good or bad it's how they make it.

It doesn't do anything for me at all. The original is just too great (aside from some of the dated FX) and no one can replace Roddy McDowell. Not to mention other memorable performances (i.e. Evil Ed, Jerry Dandridge played of course by Stephen Geoffreys and Chris Sarandon respectively).

Dated effects? By literal definition, maybe... but that's not a bad thing. Miniatures, models, animatronics, puppets, costumes, makeup and stop-motion will always be superior to CG.

Nice. I think it gets the vibe of the original and this looks like it'll be the funnest movie of the summer.
