    Empire Big Screen '11 Review: 'Fright Night' Is Entertaining, But Eminently Disposable

    A confession: this writer has never seen the original "Fright Night." It's one of a certain kind of 80s VHS-era film ("The Goonies," 'Weird Science," 'Wargames"), beloved by a certain generation that this writer was a few years too late for, and that we've never caught up on, principally because it feels like there are plenty of better things to do with our time. This is a long-winded way of saying that if you're looking for comparisons between the original and 2011's "Fright Night", if you're looking for someone to tell you if Colin Farrell lives up to Chris Sarandon, this is not the review for you. What we can do is judge Craig Gillespie's ...

    Imogen Poots Says Colin Farrell Brings A "Slick Sexuality" To His Vampire In 'Fright Night'

    Here at The Playlist, we’ve been singing the praises of British actress Imogen Poots for a while now. She impressed in Jordan Scott’s boarding school drama “Cracked” and David Levien’s “Solitary Man,” and has been building her presence over the years, with smaller roles in “V for Vendetta,” “28 Weeks Later” and “Me and Orson Welles.” At the close of 2010, The Playlist listed Poots as one of our 15 actresses on the rise, and indeed with roles coming up in the biopic "Greetings From Tim Buckley," the drama "A Late Quartet" (alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and more) and the romance/heist flick "Comes A Bright Day" with "Submar...

    Comic-Con '11: Vampires --The Biting Kind -- Are Back With 'Fright Night' & 'Underworld: Awakening'

    Though "Breaking Dawn" has captured the hearts of teens and their moms, the brutal, blood-sucking, non-sparkly vampire remains immortal. After Thursday's "Twilight" lovefest, Comic-Con's Hall H was taken over by two vehicles for the meaner brand of the undead with "Fright Night" and "Underworld: Awa...

    Imogen Poots Gets 'Greetings From Tim Buckley'

    Yes, believe it folks, one of the two Jeff Buckley movies in development is moving forward whether you like it or not, and production continues with its indie spirit as Deadline reveals that rising Brit actress Imogen Poots has joined the cast. While her name may sound funny and or not be familiar at all to you, that is likely soon to change. The actress impressed in last year's "Solitary Man" and this year, she was made her presence known in two period pieces, the criminally underseen Jordan Scott film "Cracks" and Cary Fukunaga's gothic "Jane Eyre." But her biggest exposure is yet to come as next month, she'll try not to get fanged by Colin...
