- “Fright Night” boasts a truly international cast. Director Craig Gillespie and Toni Collette are from Australia, Imogen Poots was born in England, Colin Farrell hails from Ireland, David Tennant is from Scotland and Anton Yelchin is from Russia. Christopher Mintz-Plasse comes all the way from Los Angeles, California.
- Director Craig Gillespie (“Lars and the Real Girl”) directed Toni Collette to an Emmy® Award and a Golden Globe® Award for her starring role in Showtime’s “United States of Tara.”
- Colin Farrell, who plays the role of the vampire Jerry, is such a fan of the original “Fright Night” that he has seen the classic horror film at least 12 times.
- David Tennant, portraying vampire expert Peter Vincent, is a classically trained British actor, who starred in the hit BBC series “Dr. Who.”
- When Imogen Poots shot an old revolver at vampire Jerry, it was the first time she had ever fired a gun.
- Fright Night” screenwriter Marti Noxon has a lot of experience with the undead, having previously written for vampires on the popular television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
- “Fright Night” is set in Las Vegas, where late-night activity is not viewed as out of the ordinary.
- The “Fright Night” exteriors were shot in Rio Rancho, a desert community northwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
- Costume Designer Susan Matheson had great fun creating costumes for David Tennant’s character, illusionist Peter Vincent. For his stage-show look she designed a classic leather frock coat with an exaggerated collar. Then she gave him lots of rings on his fingers and some very tight, stretch leather pants with boots. For his vampire-fighting scenes, the look changed to another long leather coat with a revisionist 1980s feel, worn with a T-shirt, jeans and sneakers.
- “Fright Night” interior sets were built on Stage 2 and Stage 3 at Albuquerque Studios.
- Peter Vincent’s (played by David Tennant) “Fright Night” stage-show set was built in the amphitheater of the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque.
- One-of-a-kind props include the St. Michael’s stake, which was whittled from wood and bone, the Assyrian Egyptian vampire stake, the Polynesian stake, crosses, vials of holy water and a stake gun, all designed and built by Prop Master Ben Lowney.
- Prop Master Ben Lowney used a sharp piece of bone to create one of the vampire stakes. On the cap, he inscribed something cryptic in ancient Greek and Latin, which he is keeping as a secret while waiting for someone to slow down the movie and decipher what has been written.
- To create a crucifix nail that looks ancient, Ben Lowney, the prop master, researched photos of Roman nails that are in the British Museum. To achieve the same look, he soaked an iron bolt in acid for a week. When finished, it looked like a relic.
- The gun created for Imogen Poots to shoot is actually a replica of a gun owned by World War II hero, General George S. Patton.
- The makeup effects were by Howard Berger and Greg Nicotero, who designed five distinctive stages of makeup to transform Colin Farrell into Jerry the vampire.
Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all – he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right – and everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
The film stars Anton Yelchin as Charley Brewster, Colin Farrell as Jerry, Toni Collette as Jane Brewster, Imogen Poots as Amy, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Evil Ed, and David Tennant as Peter Vincent.
