A remake of the 1985 horror comedy “Fright Night,” about Charley Brewster (Yelchin), a teenager who discovers that his neighbors are vampires. Farrell has the plum role of the vampire, named Jerry, who on the surface appears to be a cool guy but is really preying on the neighborhood. Collette is Yelchin’s mom, who at first disapproves of the new arrival but changes her attitude when she meets the magnetic man and – surprise – doesn’t believe her son when he tries to tell her Jerry is a vampire. Tennant will play Peter Vincent, the host of a late-night horror show. In the remake, he’s a Las Vegas magician whose show revolves around horror-movie imagery. Vincent claims to be a vampire expert, but when the teen turns to him for assistance, he’s less than helpful. Mintz-Plasse is playing Evil Ed, Yelchin’s friend who feels slighted that Charlie has left his nerdy past behind and thus joins the vampire’s coven.
