Forget the dreamy vampires with their sparkly skin and their blood-free teeth — the real fanged menace is coming your way in August, though if you’re sticking with MTV News throughout our Sneak Peek Week leading up to the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, you’ll get a taste of what’s to come a few weeks early.
To get things started, we have an exclusive clip from “Fright Night,” featuring bad boy Colin Farrell giving a reality check to leading man Anton Yelchin.
In “Fright Night,” Anton Yelchin stars as Charley Brewster, a high school student living with his single mother Jane (Toni Collette) when a mysterious stranger named Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. Immediately suspicious of Jerry, Charley’s concerns grow into outright fear when he and his best friend (and fellow social outcast) “Evil” Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) discover that the new neighbor is secretly a blood sucking vampire. In light of this revelation, tensions between Charley and Jerry boil over into a deadly game of bat and mouse as the pair’s domestic dispute escalates into something considerably more dangerous. Imogen Poots and David Tennant also star in the Craig Gillespie-directed horror remake.
