Being a teenager is stressful enough without the added hassle of living next door to the undead. That's what Anton Yelchin's youthful protagonist, Charley, faces in Fright Night - Craig Gillespie's (Lars and the Real Girl, Mr. Woodcock) remake of Tom Holland's 1985 horror-comedy classic - when he learns that Jerry, his handsome, amiable neighbor, is in actuality a vampire. And Jerry's no sensitive and mopey Twilight-type, either; he's a vicious, nasty fellow, and he's none too pleased when he finds Charley snooping about his business.
We recently sat down with Gillespie, Farrell, Yelchin and Fright Night co-stars Imogen Poots and Christopher Mintz-Plasse to talk about their experience remaking a film many consider to be a minor genre masterpiece:
