Movie Reviews

  • the vamp-transformation effects are quite good, the gimmicky uses of 3D lots of fun. But perhaps the most special effect of all is Farrell. Pardon the pun, but he chews this movie up
    3 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • mostly unsurprising
    2.5 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • it's noteworthy how filmmakers updated Vincent from Roddy McDowall's 1985 version, changing the character from a TV horror show host, a profession that's now obsolete, to the perfect contemporary equivalent
    2.5 of 4 by Jon Niccum [Kansas City Star ]
  • it's great fun watching
    3.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • it delivers its knowingly unrefined thrills in a smart, engaging and not unpleasantly ruthless way, and never lets its cheekiness get in the way of its creepiness
    3.5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • isn't quite a classic vampire movie, but it's refreshingly straightforward and self-deprecating
    by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • is the best thing to happen to horror movies since red food coloring and Karo syrup
    3.5 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • Fright is clearly Hollywood summer fare. Slick and driven by a bass-heavy score, the film embraces cliches by the cape-ful
    3 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
  • a steady supply of spiky humor and a game cast keep this cooking most of the way
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a cleverly balanced mix of scares and laughs that is funnier and more terrifying than the 1985 original on which it's based
    by Robert Koehler [Variety ]
  • Reviewed by A.O. Scott [NY Times ]
