DreamWorks Releases Official Synopsis for FRIGHT NIGHT

     October 15, 2010

DreamWorks has released the official synopsis for director Craig Gillespie’s Fright Night which stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant and Imogen Poot. Here’s what they sent over:

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.

I know a decent amount about this remake and can tell you it’s something you should be looking forward to.  Hit the jump for more:

While I’d love to go into detail about what I know regarding Fright Night, I’m going to have to keep my mouth shut until closer to it’s August 19, 2011 release date (or when DreamWorks lifts the embargo).   Here’s exactly what DreamWorks sent over.  For more on Fright Night, here’s all our previous coverage.
