The first images from Craig Gillespie’s 3D remake of Fright Night have gone online. The story centers on a teenager (Anton Yelchin) who discovers that his neighbor (Colin Farrell) is a vampire. And not a cuddly Twilight vampire. A he’s-murdering-people-because-he’s-a-vampire vampire. There’s nothing too spectacular in the shots aside from a fangy Colin Farrell threatening Anton Yelchin, but there’s also some shots of co-stars Imogen Poots and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Fright Night also stars David Tennant and Toni Collette. The film opens in 3D on August 19th. [Update: We’ve updated the article with three more images, which you can find after the jump.] [Update 2: We’ve now updated the article with hi-res versions of all of the images.]

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.
