NOW PLAYING

FRIGHT NIGHT Starring: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, David Tennant, Toni Collette, Christopher Mintz-Plasse What Jeff says: Remake of the 1985 cult classic vampire story. Unlike some other recent remakes, this one can improve on the imperfect original with an updated story and updated special effects. Keeping the same tongue-in-cheek humor of the original is a must, though.
