Average, little on laughs or scares

The "Fright Night" remake is nothing groundbreaking in the horror genre, just a fun way to spend a couple hours with your brain turned off. Characters were certainly more developed in this film than most horror movies, and Farrall as vampire Jerry certainly brings a charisma the actor's famous for, sans Irish accent. But Brewster's nerdy background wasn't enough for me to care about him, and I'm afraid that's how most people will view this average film.

[TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE]

There is a very disturbing rape scene in this film, which is unfortunately not mentioned on this site's film description. It lasts at least a minute. Jerry (the bad guy) rapes a prostitute he has locked up in his house, while Charlie helplessly looks on. It is implied that Jerry habitually rapes his victims (possibly multiple times) before feeding on them. The rape is not sexualized, but it is also not referred to at any point later on in the film. Its only narrative purpose is to show that Jerry is a Bad Guy. Sexual violence always ought to be mentioned in Common Sense Media reviews.

16 and up.

Fright Night is a good horror vampire movie but only for your older teens and parents you need to know that Fright Night has a lot of vampire bloody violence some sexual innuendo scenes shown and also constant strong language used and some drinking used.
