In 1985, William Ragsdale and Roddy McDowall took suburban vampire hunting to the next level in "Fright Night." Now the cult classic is getting a 21st century facelift in the form of Colin Farrell as the seductive bloodsucker named Jerry who's making local teens disappear.
Filling Ragsdale and McDowall's shoes are Anton Yelchin as Charley and David Tennant as Peter Vincent, and taking over Stephen Geoffreys's duties as the irrepressible "Evil" Ed Thompson is "Superbad" star Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Can Pavel Chekov and Dr. Who save the townsfolk before they all get fanged by Jerry? Find out on Friday when "Fright Night" gets you out of the sunlight and into the theater for some vampire-staking fun -- and get ready with the three clips below.
1. Neighborly Chat. A terrifying vision of what a sex education class with Colin Farrell might be like.
2. That's a Terrible Vampire Name. Although we had our suspicions, McLovin has officially been outed as a "Twilight" fan.
3. How too Kill A Vampire. After Andy Serkis killed it as Caesar in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," David Tennant becomes the second British actor this month to re-invent a role originally played by Roddy McDowall. Must be something in the air.
