James Jay Edwards of FilmFracture writes: "Fright Night is a fairly faithful remake of the campy 1985 film of the same name. Director Craig Gillespie (Mr. Woodcock) takes screenwriter Marti Noxon's (I Am Number Four) update of Tom Holland's (the man who also brought the world Child's Play) initial story and turns the volume up. The acting is upgraded immensely from the original, so the reboot is more of a traditional horror film than a campy b-movie tribute. Fright Night is still the same cool vampire flick, but with the upgraded production values it just looks slicker. This is how horror movie reboots should be - fix the flaws in the original film without compromising the fun."
