Does anybody remember laughter? Laughter, in conjunction with beautiful people holding hands and smiling on red carpets?
In a world where Brangelina, Bennifer, Bennifer 2 and TomKat (sorry, Suri, have a cupcake) have all been earnestly embraced by the media and public at large, we have but one whole-hearted plea: just let us have some fun again. There's nothing wrong with being obsessed with celebrity couples (we are, totally), but you know what else is totally allowed? Laughter.
On that note, please consider throwing your support behind CumberPoots. Or, for the uneducated, Benedict Cumberbatch and Imogen Poots.
David Tennant's bogus Vegas magician Peter Vincent stole the show during this year's critically acclaimed remake of the cult horror hit "Fright Night," but as cool as his tricks in the film were, he's about to pull off his greatest feat of magic yet: Making a free "Fright Night" Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack appear in your hands.

"I'm a good date -- get me drunk and I'll try anything," says master stage magician Peter Vincent (David Tennant) to young Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) during one of their more dangerous and dubious vampire-hunting expeditions in "Fright Night."
A good date doesn't necessarily have to involve intoxication (or actual vampire hunting). If you plan on taking a lovely mortal to the new horror comedy, there are many ways you can make this "Night" truly one to remember.
Wait, did we say "Night?" There's going to be more to it than that. Unlike actual vampires, you and your date are able to move around during the day -- we're assuming, anyway -- so your perfect "Fright Night" date actually begins in the afternoon... Get More »
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. Get More »
It's lonely business believing in vampires.
Kid Cudi mopes around a suburban wasteland, peeking in on his undead neighbors, a slave to his horrible knowledge in the music video for "No One Believes Me," the hip hop artist's contribution to the "Fright Night" soundtrack.
The song and video hits just the right balance between true existential dread and a kind of pop self-consciousness, a tightrope act that "Fright Night" itself needs to pull off if it's going to work. It's a difficult trick, but we're confident the reboot of the 1985 horror comedy has it up its sleeve. Get More »

In the crowded world of vampire movies, it's hard these days to come up with an original take on the craze, but Colin Farrell has managed to do just that thanks to a crazy new idea: scary vampires.
Yes, it's true: the upcoming remake of the cult horror hit "Fright Night" features Farrell as a bloodsucker who is actually more scary than dreamy -- and now, MTV Movies Blog has an exclusive new clip to prove it.
Co-starring Anton Yelchin ("Star Trek"), Christopher Mintz-Plasse and David Tennant, "Fright Night" will be creeping into a theater near you on Aug. 19. But if you want to be reminded what a vampire looks like when they are being menacing instead of just broodily handsome, head over to MTV and check it out right now. Because these things will kill you -- and it's about time someone remembered that.
The Cannes Film Festival is known for many things -- red carpets, star-studded galas, critics booing movies -- but this year it's become known for something new: vampires.
That's because two new high-profile vampire films, from famed directors Neil Jordan and Jim Jarmusch, were announced at this year's festival. And considering these are just the latest entries in the hottest film craze of the decade, we thought now would be a good time to take look at those projects as well as eight other upcoming vampire movies.

While remakes can come in all shapes and sizes (pointless, shadows of the original, cheap knock-offs and faithful homages) they are rarely an improvement on the original. However, the upcoming "Fright Night" looks to have that potential.
With a new screenplay written by geek idol Marti Noxon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel") and a pretty impressive cast, we're betting this sequel has the goods. Get More »
